MBA7545 - ANALYTICAL MANAGERS AND ORGANIZATIONS

ANALYTICAL MANAGERS AND ORGANIZATIONS

MBA7545 Analytical Managers and Organizations 3 credit blended elective F2F meeting dates: Saturday, October 11th and Saturday, November 15th (all day sessions) This course is designed to teach MBA students what it means to be an analytical manager, and how to build the capabilities required to be a highly analytical organization. It addresses the non-statistical topics in analytical decision-making at the individual level (including framing the problem and communicating the results), which should complement statistically-oriented courses at Babson. It also addresses the key factors (in the DELTTA model—data, enterprise, leadership, targets, technology, and analysts) necessary to succeed with analytics at the organizational level. It incorporates new course content specifically relevant to big data and analytics based on it. The course specifically delves into how both large and entrepreneurial organizations are addressing big data and analytics, and focuses in particular on how digital and online firms use and manage analytics. We’ll discuss various industries’ and functions’ use of analytics, but the only one addressed in any depth is web analytics for digitally-oriented businesses. Prerequisites: none

DESIGN & INNOV IN SERVICE INDUSTRIES

MOB9526 Strategies for Service Innovation 1.5 credit Intensive Elective Meeting Dates- Saturday, June 6 and Saturday June 13 (full day sessions) All countries go through life cycles-agriculture, manufacturing and services. The majority of the developed world can be considered today to be primarily services based. However, services which were at one time a differentiator for most businesses are more or less commoditized today.

Several trends have emerged over the last 15 years: (1) Move from Services to Experiences; (2) Emergence of new Digital and Networked Economies; (3) Information and Knowledge Intense Economies; (4) the rise of the new TIME industry, i.e., the convergence of the Telecom, Information, Media and Entertainment industries and (5) The rise of innovation in third world countries and their role in transforming the lives of poor people around the globe. This course explores the innovations that are driving all these trends as primarily applied to a broad section of service industries-Airlines, Retail, Financial, B2B, TIME and even Not-for-Profits. Further, this course provides several tools and techniques to capture the notion of customer value, define and design innovative services and deliver great experiences for the target market.
