Seminar Series: Real Time Deep Dive into the Global Crisis as it Evolves 11/18/08

Nov. 18, 2008: In the second in a series of special seminars, Prof. Simon Johnson dives deep into the global economic crisis and answers questions from the MIT Sloan community.

Deep dive into India

Ploy Jensen had been to India before. But her visit to the Taj Mahal and other tourist stops were hardly a precursor to the deep dive into India's emerging technology market and diverse culture that she experienced as part of her Global Entrepreneurship Lab class. Working with a venture capital firm, she and her G-Lab teammates spent time at MIT Sloan last fall analyzing investment considerations for the firm's new Indian startup fund. Their efforts culminated in a trip to India in January that shed new light on their analysis, imbued her with respect for the intelligence and determination of the Indian people, and left her with vivid memories. Jensen, a 2007 MBA student, recounts her G-Lab experience and how it fits into her MIT Sloan education.

Challenges to the Global Economy

If economic analyses earned ratings like movies, this event would receive an X for extremely disturbing. Two of the field's most prominent voices spare any sugar coating in their unsettling accounts of the world's unfolding economic crisis.

G-Lab ’10: Intergrupo, Colombia

In Colombia, says Ramy Hakim, MBA ‘10, “everyone tries to be your friend. Everyone is very genuine.” This value on interpersonal relationships was a major takeaway for Hakim and his teammates when they spent time this spring working with Intergrupo, a software company based in Medellin, Colombia. The team was charged with creating a human resource strategy, but the camaraderie they found within the company may be the real success story. Says Hakim, “The friendships you develop in the business place really propel the work you do.” Listen to the podcast.

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 ’10: Kampala Family Clinic, Uganda

For Irina Kogan, Emmy Linder, and Anne Reilly, all MBA ’10, flexibility was key when selecting a G-Lab project to work on, and Uganda’s Kampala Family Clinic provided plenty of it. The tradeoff, however, was some extra work to better define both the scope and the deliverables for the project. The for-profit clinic wanted to expand, but was unsure which way to go. One very important lesson that the team imparted to its client: It is important to understand why the organization has been successful in the past before deciding which direction to grow for the future. Listen to the podcast.

G-Lab ’10: Nam Mee Books, Thailand

Bangkok-based Nam Mee Books has made a name for itself as Thailand’s leading publisher of comics and children’s books, including Harry Potter, but it now faces the challenge of expanding into a broader market. The company’s openness to new ideas and willingness to follow whatever path the G-Lab team they worked with recommended meant more pressure on the team, but also a greater sense of ownership over the company’s future for the team members. Lia Cavalcante and Jeremy Bratt talk about the kind of research was required for such an undertaking and the willingness of their hosts to listen.

G-Lab ’10: Mercy Corps, Jakarta

In Jakarta, Indonesia, street carts are a major source of food for children. In their efforts to combat childhood malnutrition, the Mercy Corps organization is trying to insure that such street carts offer healthy options for their young customers. With a well-run pilot program in place, Mercy Corps brought an MIT Sloan G-Lab team to the table to learn how to maximize their efforts and expand their business. The team spent several weeks in Jakarta, gaining valuable insights about the culture of the city and the conditions of the neighborhoods in which the food carts were operating. In the end, the team was able to provide Mercy Corp with the tools necessary to grow their business and advance their mission.

Opportunities in Building More Sustainable Supply Chains

When a global corporation implements sustainability standards, it pays to work closely with supply chains, as these panelists attest.

G-Lab '09: Ras Resort, India

The first in a series of podcast exploring MIT Sloan's renowned Global Entrepreneurship Lab (G-Lab) focuses on a marketing challenge in Mumbai, India. A Mumbai-based entrepreneur hopes to capitalize on his belief that tourism in India will be growing--particularly among business travelers--by expanding his hotel business into other cities across the country. It's the job of the MIT Sloan G-Lab team to sift through his ever-shifting ideas and goals and steer him and his business in the right direction. Team members Gerardo Guzman and Karen Bruck (both MBA class of 2009) talk about zeroing in on the project's scope to build their client a solid business plan and the welcome assistance of MIT alumni contacts in India.

‘Cultivating a holistic, integrative approach’: MIT Sloan School reflects on new Enterprise Management Track — Sharmila Chatterjee

From The Huffington Post A few years ago, we here at MIT Sloan School of Management looked in to launching an MBA track to complement the existing tracks in Finance and Entrepreneurship. We contacted alumni and business professionals to determine what types of skills companies most desired in our MBA graduates. We wanted to find out what the companies’ needs were and where they saw gaps. What we found is perhaps the paradox of today’s global business world: even as markets have become increasingly interconnected and technology enables employees spread all over the globe to easily share knowledge and resources, it’s still hard for large organizations to achieve true interconnectedness that get things done. The reason is simple. Employees have a natural tendency to be self-contained within their particular business units. Marketing folks mostly talk to other marketing folks; operations people consult other operations people; and the finance team pretty … Read More »The post ‘Cultivating a holistic, integrative approach’: MIT Sloan School reflects on new Enterprise Management Track — Sharmila Chatterjee appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
