Business Leadership in Changing Times --- The objective of this course is to develop a useful approach for recognizing and dealing with rapid change in business. This course deals with business leadership during periods of rapid change and managing a business during difficult times. It focuses on the early recognition of, methods of coping with, ways of learning from, and prevention of critically disruptive situations. One part of the course involves identifying and understanding the more frequent disruptions that business executives encounter. This is accomplished through readings of current literature and case simulations. Teams of students reconstruct outstanding cases based on reading, experience, and creative thinking.
