NEW WAYS OF THINKING AND DOING




Executives from around the world come to MIT Sloan Executive Education to solve business problems, gain critical and timely business insights, and prepare for new roles. 




Our short courses and the faculty who teach them are world renowned for cutting-edge methods, models, and frameworks that provide new ways of thinking and communicating about management issues and practical ways to solve problems and seize opportunities.


Breakthrough conceptual frameworks you can experience firsthand in our programs, include:









The Three Lenses: 

Taught by John Van Maanen in Leading Change in Complex Organizations and Roberto Fernandez in Creating High Velocity Organizations, this analytical approach addresses the change process from three perspectives that each provide critical insights to help managers avoid the pitfalls associated with traditional approaches to change.








4 Capabilities Leadership Framework (4-Cap):

The 4-Cap is a powerful conceptual framework for understanding and integrating the four critical components of leadership—sense-making, relating, visioning, and inventing. This framework was developed and tested in real-world settings by MIT’s Deborah Ancona, Tom Malone, Wanda Orlikowski, and Peter Senge and is presented in Transforming Your Leadership Strategy and Leading Change in Complex Organizations.






System Dynamics: 

Presented in Business Dynamics: MIT's Approach to Diagnosing and Solving Complex Business Problems, Understanding and Solving Complex Business Problems, and Strategies for Sustainable Business, system dynamics is a framework developed at MIT that provides both a theoretical and practical understanding of the structure and dynamics of complex systems such as health care, climate change, and financial markets.






Strategic Value-Chain Design: 

This unique MIT framework uses the concept of technology clockspeed to integrate supply chain design into the concurrent processes of product and manufacturing system design. This approach is presented in both Supply Chain Strategy and Management and Driving Strategic Innovation: Achieving High Performance Throughout the Value Chain.






Catalytic Questioning: 

Developed by innovation and leadership expert Hal Gregersen, the Catalytic Questioning method comprises five simple, unconventional steps to help individuals ask better questions and solve significant problems more creatively. Gregersen demonstrates this method in the new program, The Innovator’s DNA: Mastering Five Skills for Disruptive Innovation.






The Design Structure Matrix (DSM): 

The DSM is a flexible and widely used method for simplifying complex tasks, such as product design, in order to make them more efficient. MIT Sloan Professor Steven Eppinger
is the world’s authority on DSM and teaches the framework in Managing Complex Technical Projects and Systematic Innovation of Products, Processes, and Services.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
