Approach to Learning
This course is designed to be centered on active learning -- discussion and application -- rather than the traditional lecture-regurgitation format. Research strongly suggests, and our teaching experiences corroborate, that active learning is more effective and more interesting than traditional lecture-based teaching methods. Successful active learning requires a major investment from both students and faculty. You will need to study the assigned readings before each class, do a fair amount of thinking and writing, and be prepared to contribute to the class discussion. You should become a partner in the learning environment, which means asking questions, sharing your reactions, giving feedback to your colleagues and instructor, and staying on top of the workload. I will invest time and energy to help you attain your goals for the course, and work with you to develop your skills and abilities (more like a coach than a traditional lecturer). This approach requires more work from all of us, but the long run benefits warrant the extra effort.

We will use a combination of lecture, discussions (case based as well news items based) during most class periods. For each topic area, we will usually discuss the strategic management frameworks prevalent in different industry
