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.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
