Event Details

Beyond Lean: Building a Strategy for Your Business
Thursday, February 7th from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Class Overview:

Your business strategy is the difference between success and failure.  Hundreds of books have been written on “strategy”, many people have declared it their specialty, yet it remains poorly understood and it is rarely executed effectively. This course aims to clearly define what “strategy” is, what it means, and why it is critical to the success of any business (especially startups).  You will also walk away with a practical framework and selection of tools for your own strategy.


Student Takeaways:

•          Clear definition of strategy and why it’s critical to success 

•          Understanding of the relationship between strategy and execution

•          Framework and tools for developing an effective strategy

•          Real-world case studies for discussion and context



We will briefly discuss the large technology players: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Samsung. Please come with a point of view on at least one of these.
