Two Talks, Many Provocative Ideas

Last month we reported on the BIF-5 Collaborative Innovation Summit. We noted that videos for the talks would be posted and that happened yesterday. Here are two well worth your time.

Roger Martin, dean of the Rotman School of Management, talked about fixing MBA education so it no longer produces, as The Economist calls them, “jargon-spewing economic vandals.” He spoke in detail about moving the MBA curriculum from shallow to deep, narrow to broad, static to dynamic.

John Maeda, formerly of MIT and now president of the Rhode Island School of Design, talked about how fundamental “hand-based” knowledge is being lost as part of our transition to new technologies and new models.

If these intrigue you, there are plenty more.
