Innovation Island DE1-223-I-M
Innovation Island is an out-of-the-box interactive simulation created to facilitate a practical in-class learning journey for instructors focusing on various strategic and leadership themes, such as leadership intelligence, collaborative innovation, design thinking and scenario planning.
After a plane crash, learners are stranded on a deserted island together with limited resources and an abundance of dangers. Using lessons from the professor himself, survivors must work in groups to develop a prototype that will assist them in confronting at least one particular uncertainty that jeopardizes their survival on this unforgiving island.
This multimedia is unique in that it gives instructors the freedom to focus their session on the themes they choose (e.g. soft skills and leadership intelligence).
The activity is also heavily based on collaboration and teamwork, encouraging learners to spend the majority of their time putting into practice the takeaways provided by the instructors in their class in a highly constructive way. Also, being put in a fictitious situation not typically used in higher-education/continuing-education settings, participants are 1) all able to connect and collaborate on a goal, regardless of their professional backgrounds, and 2) forced to think outside the box critically.
This simulation can be used effectively in MBA, MIB and M.Sc.; Global or Executive programs at any level, particularly in courses focusing on: innovation, leadership, strategy, strategy execution, complexity management and/or team dynamicsAcademic Area:Strategy | Innovation
Loewe case study: Sustainability and Durable Luxury DE1-209-I
The case study describes the process of integrating the concept of sustainability into the operations of LOEWE. The leadership of the new CEO, Lisa Montague, is a key part of the process, as is a highly structured plan to measure and determine whether the process is moving forward. One remarkable aspect of the case is the Leather Crafts College initiative, a training centre open to people interested in developing this skill and who have passed a selection process coordinated by Getafe Council. Having a pool of people who have become "artisans" is critical in the company´s plans for growth.
This case study is ideal to use with a group of students who have management experience. In addition, it is very suitable for use in an advanced level programme related to luxury or communication, when addressing issues related to sustainability. It also certainly fits into a CSR course, when dealing with CSR in more depth than simply as corporate philanthropy.
On a Business, Government and Society course, the case is very useful for illustrating the application of Michael Porter's article: “Creating Shared Value”.
The most appropriate time to position the case is midway through the course.Academic Area:Strategy
