Intellectual Capital: Professor Deborah Ancona on the MIT Leadership Center

The mission of the MIT Leadership Center is to develop leaders who make a difference in the world. But the center is also committed to a great deal more. As the Center's Faculty Director Deborah Ancona explains, it's critical to the center to make contributions in how the world thinks about leadership. Through research, education, and practice, the center generates and tests ideas on leadership, and then sends them out into the world. One such idea, The Distributed Leadership Model, is a response to the changing nature of business and the chaotic nature of the world, and it's a model that's taking hold.

In Action: MIT Sloan Veterans Club

Making the move from a career in the military to management school starts with one critical step: leaving the military. That decision is more complex than a civilian might think, particularly given the intense commitment and teamwork that bonds soldiers so strongly. As they get ready to embark on the next phase of their lives and careers, Veterans Club members Ryan Gilchrist and Victor Mroczkowski talk about transitioning from fatigues to business suits and compare the leadership philosophies of the military and MIT Sloan.

Distributed Leadership in the Obama Campaign

The Obama campaign owes its victory not to a single charismatic candidate, but to the efforts of a disciplined and motivated organization whose roots go back to landmark movements of the 1960s. Marshall Ganz describes how the principles and practices he learned around organizing and leadership played out in the most recent presidential election.

Values-Based Leadership

A West Point start, army career, and a disciplined approach to distilling key life experiences has guided Robert McDonald through his 20 years at Procter & Gamble. He shares his insights on leadership and values.

Leadership Amidst Crisis

In thirty years, S. D. Shibulal has seen his share of economic crises, three to be exact. But in thinking hard about the role of crises in the future for today's students, he predicts: they will occur more frequently, and will be less predictable, longer lasting and more costly.

Distributed Leadership in the Obama Campaign

The same institutional tenets guiding innovative management during good times needn't waver during a downturn, even the present one, says Emmanuel Maceda. After two decades at Bain, Maceda feels confident in his company's practices and principles, which have guided both Bain and its clients through earlier economic booms and busts.

Insights on Leadership at United Technologies Corporation

Key to such successes is flow optimization, says George David, and simultaneous work: short assembly lines with quality checks along the way. "There is no force more powerful in modern business than productivity," he says.

A Policy on Leadership

Ted Kelly walks a Sloan audience through the process of turning around a failing company. His formula? Develop two key things: a fact based analytical organization, and great management teams that value people.

A year to grow as a leader

The fast-moving global fashion industry leaves little time for reflection, according to Ruth Sommers, executive vice president of Victoria's Secret Direct and a 2001 graduate of the MIT Sloan Fellows Program in Innovation and Global Leadership. In fashion, instinct can trump analysis, and cross-disciplinary teams demand leaders. For Sommers, a year as an MIT Sloan Fellow was a rare opportunity to pause and focus on growing as a leader and a person. Learn more about the MIT Sloan Fellows Program in Innovation and Global Leadership at http://mitsloan.mit.edu/fellows.

Student stories: Jason Jay

MIT Sloan PhD student Jason Jay recently joined the ranks of Switzer Fellows, a prestigious group focused on environmental research and leadership. Long dedicated to environmental scholarship, Jay specializes in the organizational dimensions of sustainability (i.e., how companies manage their environmental performance and why companies undertake sustainability issues). Here, Jay talks about what it means to be a Switzer Fellow, the trends in sustainability that have him most hopeful, and what he wants to achieve with his doctorate.

Intellectual Capital: Jeanne Ross on the Center for Information Systems Research

It may have been around for 35 years, but the central question facing MIT Sloan's Center for Information Systems Research (CISR) hasn't changed: How can companies get value from IT? As CISR's Director Jeanne Ross explains, the answer to this question is not just about technology. Taking a more holistic view of business, the center delves into issues of leadership, architecture, talent development, and relationship building, among others. In the end, CISR hopes to bring people and machines together to make businesses more competitive.

Forging Fellowship: Tanya Bodell, SF '08

Tanya Bodell believes joining the MIT Sloan Fellows Program was a leap of faith -- a leap that has paid off tenfold in professional opportunities and personal growth. As a vice president at CRA International, Tanya was looking to the Fellows program to prepare her for increasing leadership responsibilities, expand her skill set, and establish international relationships. What she also got was lifelong connections with classmates and an expanded perspective on the world. She also became an expert juggler: In her two years in the Fellow's flex format, she continued her duties at CRA, gave birth to her third child, and bought and renovated a new home.

Running a small business while at MIT Sloan

MIT Sloan alum Hiram Samel runs Merida Meridian, a Boston-based manufacturer of distinctive textiles. It's a small company, but a global company, with operations in 20 countries. A 2006 graduate of the MIT Sloan Fellows Program in Innovation and Global Leadership, Samel chose the program's two-year flexible schedule option. It was a great option for a small business owner, he says -- not only because he could accommodate both school and a dynamic business but also because the learning didn't stop when he was back tending to the company.

From Relief to Reconstruction -- Practical and Policy Challenges

As the United Nations and worldwide NGOs face the challenges of providing basic services to the survivors of the January 2010 Haitian earthquake, Oxfam's Raymond Offenheiser scrutinizes what will ultimately be "crucial to the outcome, in the Haitian context, of a successful recovery and rehabilitation by the Haitian people and for the Haitian nation--distributed leadership."

Intellectual Capital: Professors Tom Kochan and Paul Osterman on IWER

The Institute for Work and Employment Research (IWER) at MIT Sloan studies issues that are of importance to a great many people—particularly these days. For over 70 years, IWER has explored work and employment issues in both the public and private sectors, and from the perspective of individuals and governments. Professors Tom Kochan and Paul Osterman sat down to explain the myriad areas of IWER’s expertise—from teaching HR management, negotiations, entrepreneurship, and leadership to their long tradition of focusing on labor and employment policy. Through its research and teaching, IWER hopes to help individuals, businesses, and policy makers adapt to the changing nature of work.

Bill Porter in Conversation with Howard Anderson

Bill Porter shares his own "light bulb moment" when he discovered that a simple Apple computer could give him stock quotes, hours before the morning newspaper arrived. This moment in the early 1980's led to the creation of E-Trade. Howard Anderson hosts this lively conversation on leadership.

Partnering with Amazon? Think twice fashion retailers — Sharmila C. Chatterjee

From Fortune When I read that Amazon was in talks to partner with big fashion retailers like J. Crew, Abercrombie & Fitch and Neiman Marcus, it got my attention. Despite Amazon’s leadership position in online retail, you typically don’t associate these higher-end clothing retailers with a mainstream site that targets essentially everyone. If we were talking about a partnership between Amazon and Wal-Mart  WMT -0.94%  or even Costco, that would be far less surprising because of their parallels in broad customer bases and emphasis on low prices. But rather than partnering, Wal-Mart is making its own investments to level the playing field with Amazon. So why are fancier retailers like Neiman Marcus considering such a partnership? What are the risks? And do these risks outweigh the possible benefits? I think they do. For starters, look at the recent Amazon-Hachette dispute that followed failed contract negotiations. According to recent reports, Amazon  AMZN -0.53%  raised prices for Hachette books and … Read More »The post Partnering with Amazon? Think twice fashion retailers — Sharmila C.
