G-Lab ’10: Warmbath Hospital, South Africa

Witnessing multiple childbirths is not typically part of the business school curriculum. It was, however, an unexpectedly wonderful bonus for the G-Lab students working with South Africa’s Warmbath Hospital maternity ward. On site to collect information for the creation of an improved staffing model, the G-Lab team were also privileged to witness the efforts of the dedicated, if under-resourced staff, including the singing of a morning prayer for new mothers and their infants. Team members Kelsey McCarty and Jean-Nicolas Gagnon and talk about the nurses’ emotional approach to care as well as learning that the answers the team sought could be found only by learning to ask the right questions.

G-Lab '09: MAdeA project, Tanzania

The latest installment in MIT Sloan's G-Lab podcast series illustrates the critical importance of team being on the scene and in the thick of things before it can add maximum value to a project. Prior to leaving for Tanzania, the five-person student team was presented with what seemed on the surface a health care initiative for those afflicted with AIDS. Once one the ground in Africa, however, they were confronted with some sobering realities and a diverse slew of issues. Through meeting with AIDS patients and their caregivers and working with the MAdeA organization to properly assess its goals, the team realized that what was truly needed was economic empowerment for the patients and a new strategic direction for MAdeA. Ted Chan, MBA '09, and Krishna Venugopalan, SF' 09, discuss the importance of not jumping to conclusions, understanding the cultural motivation for decisions, and orders of magnitude.
