DESCRIPTION
Leaders face new levels of connectivity, complexity, and unpredictability. This course prepares leaders to use the powerful tools of computational thinking and network analysis to better anticipate, understand, and respond to these challenges. The content involves in-depth training within vis-a-vis diverse use cases, including patenting, innovation adoption, influentials, social contagion, crowdsourcing, hot streaks, and prediction markets. Content delivery is lecture-based with in-class experiential exercises and a final group project aided by a "genius bar" where students work hand-in-hand with data scientists. Students leave the course with a practical toolkit for leadership vision enhancement, value creation, and the contagious adoption of your ideas and innovations. The course was developed jointly with Professor Uzzi and complements the MORS-430 leadership and organizations course.
