What you can expect...

In this session, we learn about the importance of an entrepreneurial management approach to survive and succeed in times of disruption.

Entrepreneurs and organizations need the ability to experiment rapidly to test out new products and business models by engaging a broad range of stakeholders while releasing value that solves true customer problems.

In modern organizations, employees are given the freedom and responsibility to act and behave as it's their money and their company. We will discuss relevant concepts and a few cases to showcase entrepreneurial management in action.

Dr. Louie will walk you through a real-life Harvard Business Review case study and teach you how to think like an entrepreneur. You will work in groups for about 30 minutes to discover your inner entrepreneur.
