B-School Exec Ed, Tailored to Your Specific Needs

The opening session of this week-long program lays the foundation for the five days — consisting of a mix of lectures and discussions — that follow. Students will be expected to complete readings and assignments each evening, and will begin each day with hour-long small group discussions, before convening in the major venue for the lectures/discussions. The topics to be covered over the course of the week will be fine-tuned and mutually agreed upon by your organization and Cutter Consortium. Some suggested topics include:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Digital Transformation
  • Digital Operating Models
  • Operations, Crisis Management
  • Outsourcing
  • Supply Chain
  • Technology-enabled business models
  • Social Media
  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • IT as a Board-Level Concern
  • A Framework for Business Technology Strategy
  • Business Technology Management Issues in the 21st Century
  • Security
  • General IT Strategy
  • Global Technology Management

In this custom program, there is the option to focus activities at the end of the week on objectives specific to your company. Options include:

  • Devote sessions to discussion of a particular issue relevant to your organization;

  • Include speaker(s) from your organization; this could be a high-level corporate executive, for example, delivering a presentation on the enterprise's current strategic plans, or the CIO delivering a motivational address, or someone giving a presentation on the how technology has impacted the industry as a whole;

  • Invite a senior executive to participate in a dialogue and debrief session;

  • Conduct a facilitated discussion with a specific deliverable; "Getting it all out on the table" with an impartial, yet expert person facilitating the discussion, can make the difference between only gaining knowledge and successfully applying this knowledge to achieve your organization's long-term goals.
