MIS9530 - COMPETING ON ANALYTICS

COMPETING ON ANALYTICS

Meeting Dates: Friday June 6th - 9:00-3:00 Friday June 13th - 9:00-3:00 Saturday, June 21 9:00 – 3:00 MIS9530 COMPETING ON ANALYTICS 1.5 Credit (Intensive Elective) We are swimming in data. According to Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, "from the dawn of civilization until 2003, humankind generated five exabytes of data. Now we produce five exabytes every two days and the pace is accelerating." As a manager, you will be confronted with a series of decisions. In this hands-on course, you will gain experience using Business Intelligence (BI) tools to enable you to make more informed decisions as well as to spot patterns leading to insights often resulting in a competitive advantage. A BI system is comprised of a database, query tools, and a visualization component so you can share insights and track progress to goals. The course begins with a discussion of how analytical organizations have benefited from mining data. We then discuss how to analyze structured data, or data that fits nicely into today's popular relational databases. The course concludes with a discussion of big data or data that exceeds the processing capacity of conventional database systems. This is data that is too big, moves too fast, or doesn’t fit the structure of companies' current database architectures. It includes data from social media, sensors, RFID tags, and smartphones. McKinsey Global Institute is predicting a shortage of over a million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions. Help to fill that gap by enrolling in Competing on Analytics. NOTE: If you are enrolled in the analytics concentration and you have extensive work experience in the topics just described, please contact the faculty member

MOB9525 - STRAT FOR INNOV&ORGANIC GROWTH

STRAT FOR INNOV&ORGANIC GROWTH

Meeting Dates: Saturday, July 12th - 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Saturday, July 19th - 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM MOB9525 Strategies for Innovation & Growth 1.5 credit Intensive Elective This course focuses on developing capabilities for innovation and growth in the context of large enterprises. Achieving growth through innovation is probably the biggest "buzz word" that is floating around in corporate circles and business media today. Unfortunately, it is also the most poorly understood and misused term. Hence, corporations around the world are struggling to institutionalize innovation. Like all large-scale enterprise wide programs, Innovation also suffers from the same fate as prior programs like TQM, reengineering, 6-sigma, Balanced Scorecard and others. Few firms have truly leveraged these to spur growth and competitiveness. We will look at enterprises that have successfully incorporated innovation into their cultural DNA. These firms have survived for decades and in some cases more than 100 years by navigating through massive upheavals in technologies, markets, products, and processes. These firms have been built to last, i.e., organizational innovation. This course looks at how some of these firms have organized themselves for innovation and growth. We will explore in depth three major concepts: (1) Innovation Life Cycle, (2) Innovation Platforms and (3) Organizational Innovation. These concepts will cover the three main questions about institutionalizing innovation: (1) what type of innovation should a firm focus on and why? (2) how to implement the chosen innovation? and (3) who in the firm should be doing it? ***Please note that MOB9525 will NOT be offered in Spring 2012; it will be offered in Spring 2011, Summer 2011, and Fall 2011.***

MOB9526 - DESIGN & INNOV IN SERVICE INDUSTRIES

DESIGN & INNOV IN SERVICE INDUSTRIES

Meeting Dates: Saturday, June 7th - 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Saturday, June 14th - 8AM - 6:00 PM MOB9526 Strategies for Service Innovation 1.5 credit Intensive Elective 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. This course builds on the existing knowledge and science of service businesses and goes into understanding post-service economy based competition. 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. ***Please note that MOB9526 will NOT be offered in Spring 2012; it will be offered in Spring 2011, Summer 2011, and Fall 2011.***

The flow of federal stimulus is exceeding $33 billion for healthcare technology and innovation with estimates that more that 50,000 additional jobs will be needed to design, develop and implement new HIT. With this new funding, start-up companies proliferate, venture capital thrives and the established industry consolidates through M&A. The course will acquaint students with the basic systems used in HIT, including electronic medical records, new methods of care delivery, networks and apps for information exchange, healthcare informatics and predictive analytics. The emphasis will be not on the technical details of these systems, but on the business, entrepreneurial, and managerial implications of them. Throughout the course there will be a common theme about how emerging technologies are enabling major business model shifts across the healthcare value chain. Some of the Face to face meetings will also host health-tech industry leaders as guest speakers.

MOB7544 - THE HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN

THE HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN

MOB7544 The Healthcare Supply Chain 3 credit graduate elective The current healthcare supply chain has evolved to produce and deliver a vast array of products to service the Provider / Physician markets. The supply chain is necessarily comprehensive given this broad variety, but inventory deployment inefficiencies, time consuming logistics processes and other wasted resources prevail within the chain. Through the evolution of this supply chain, powerful intermediaries have emerged, often solving one set of problems in exchange for other complexities. The course begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of Supply Chain design, and then proceeds to provide an understanding of each of the primary players in the Healthcare chain. This understanding is applied to predict potential competitive responses of these players under various stimuli. As a capstone activity, the course will specifically consider the provider, manufacturer, and intermediary responses to the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of March, 2010. Understanding the themes of this important new legislation will allow us to anticipate possible shifts in control among channel players and identify unique future opportunities. Prerequisites: MOB7517 is recommended. Evening: MBA8530 or OPS7000 or OPS7200 Fast Track: MBA7335 or (ECN7201 and MIS7200) One Year: MBA7210 or OPS7200 Two Year: MBA7320 or OPS7303 or OPS7200

MOB7540 - MANAGING TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

MANAGING TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

MOB7540 Managing Technological Innovation (MTI) MTI is designed for general managers in organizations that use or create modern technologies. It focuses on technology in real human environments, not engineering or technical processes. Past technology innovation was based on 20th Century physical manufacturing in fixed supply chains. Modern technology innovation rests on complex global networks, both commercial and social. Making cars requires radically different management practices compared to scaling global apps across 6 billion mobile phones. This course brings students through three phases. Strategic: how to map complex ecosystems so one can see exactly why Apple wins and Nokia loses. Development: how to translate "soft" value in the marketplace into "hard" products, solutions, and management processes. Human: what kind of personal skills and continuous learning are required to manage in these environments? Students work on projects they choose to apply lessons from class. Prerequisite: None
