This is an action-oriented course to help develop your entrepreneurial leadership skills, whether or not you intend to start a new business, and will offer the elements needed to take initiative from any organizational position.  It will help you reexamine your mindset about leadership — constantly seeking opportunities, action to test possibilities, learning and new actions.

Venture Capital 101

If you want to learn how to be a successful venture capitalist or how to raise venture capital for your startup, you’ll want to know how a venture capitalist thinks and makes investment decisions. This online course on venture capital covers both the mechanics of venture capital investment and the important role investors play in shaping the culture of successful startups.

Sustainable Product Development

This course focuses on strategies and techniques for development of sustainable products and manufacturing processes. Using case studies, we will examine strategic decisions and best practices in new product and process development when environmental and resource externalities are accounted for. Environmental sustainability has emerged as the imperative management undertaking for business sustainability in the face of rising global demand for natural resources and environment services and of environmental problems such as climate change. We will examine how regulatory and voluntary requirements for sustainable development affect the ability of a firm to achieve its business and corporate objectives. We will assess how sustainable products and operational practices contribute to the firm’s competitive advantage and operational efficiency and to enabling entrepreneurial opportunities.

STRATEGIC DECISIONS (IN SPANISH) – April 2013

online education videoWhen Patricio del Sol first came to us with his proposition, it presented an interesting challenge. Del Sol, a Stanford graduate and professor at the University of Santiago in Chile, wanted to film a MOOC (a massive open online class) on Strategic Decision Making in Spanish in Silicon Valley.

None of us are fluent in Spanish, but we were excited about the project. We were able to find through an old friend at Telemundo (the Spanish language TV station in San Francisco) a wonderful Emmy award winning editor and producer, Joanna Hidalgo. Joanna would keep us ALL honest (including del Sol) when it came to sticking to the script and editing. Del Sol didn’t want to have students in the class and wanted very short (2-4 minute) chapters. He also didn’t want to teach the chapters off the top of his head, so it was our first opportunity to use the teleprompter for the entire class. We decided to use a variety of locations, inside an office. and two outdoor settings. We had a delightful two days filming with del Sol.

Del Sol also used some original animated cartoons from a friend of his in Chile which illustrated the themes of each chapter. Joanna and Rusty went on to help out with PR as it was one of the first Spanish language MOOC’s where the subject matter dealt with more advanced business principles. As it turns out more than 100 thousand people signed up for his class!
