What’s the Big IDEA? Unique and Teachable Innovation Framework Enters   [#permalink]

New post 10 May 2016, 06:00
FROM Darden Admissions Blog: What’s the Big IDEA? Unique and Teachable Innovation Framework Enters Darden’s MBA Core Curriculum (Part 1)
This is the first in a series of 3 multi-media posts chronicling a learning process which enables MBAs to make effective decisions when facing real-world ambiguity. By applying a unique innovation framework, MBAs and others can tackle the thorniest innovation challenges and create value.

The series features Darden student teams addressing business challenges presented by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Capital One, Land O’Lakes Inc., and LinkedIn with the Markle Foundation.

To learn more about the IDEA course, please visit our website.

The students are buzzing with energy and laughter, grabbing leopard-print tape and shiny bits of paper as they busily cut and glue their projects together. No, this isn’t Design School — it’s the first day of Darden’s new IDEA course, and these driven first-year MBA students are getting a taste of what will be a very different kind of learning experience.

“Design thinking is not just about thinking,” Professor Jeanne Liedtka tells the class. “It’s about doing.”

The Learning Journey Begins: LISTEN

What the students are doing today is designing wallets – a task that the professors are using to help students get a feel for the design thinking process.

Over the course of an hour or so, students experience the difference between designing a generic “ideal wallet” (based only on their own conceptions) and designing one to meet the specific needs of their partners, based on gathering data, trying out ideas (including a physical prototype), and getting feedback.

“Think about the job to be done,” Professor Liedtka told them. “The wallet is just an artifact. Think about the role that it plays in the life of the person you are designing for.”

Image
Students Roll Up Their Sleeves, Create Rapid Prototypes and Test Assumptions

IDEA (the acronym stands for Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship in Action) is an experiential learning course grounded in the approaches of design thinking, agile project management, data analytics, effectuation, and lean start-up. By introducing it into the final term of the first year core, faculty are looking to move beyond the case method learning students have become accustomed to and challenge them to confront real-world problems with a set of tools that are built for ambiguity and uncertainty.

Over the course of the next seven weeks, students will work in teams to solve open-ended challenges presented by corporate, non-profit, and government sponsors like Capital One and PBS.

“What’s very unique about IDEA is that it sits in between a client-focused project without any process around it, and the highly structured decisions that are typical in the classroom,” explains finance professor Marc Lipson, another member of the faculty team leading the course. “It’s both a class and an experience.”

“What we’ve created are real challenges with real sources of frustration and real ambiguity,” he added. “But the purpose is to teach you that there is a well-established set of steps you can take to make meaningful steps forward in that environment.”

Image

Tomorrow, students will be meeting with their sponsors. Today, the teams will get together for the first time to figure out how they will work together and create a design brief-a first pass at framing the problem they intend to address.

As they move from debriefing the wallet exercise to talking about the challenges ahead, the students get quiet. Professor Liedtka reminds them that they can still have fun.

“Get into your challenge,” she says, “and see where it takes you.”

Have you been thinking about an MBA and how to approach the application process?

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: What’s the Big IDEA? Unique and Teachable Innovation Framework Enters the MBA Core Curriculum (Part 2)
This is the 2nd in a series of 3 multi-media posts chronicling a learning process which enables MBAs to make effective decisions when facing real-world ambiguity. By applying a unique innovation framework, MBAs and others can tackle the thorniest innovation challenges and create value.

The Challenge Is Made

On the second day of Darden’s new IDEA course (Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship in Action), five teams of students are listening closely as representatives from Capital One outline the challenge they’ll be tackling over the next seven weeks.

“Our competitors typically compete on the margins,” says senior manager Peter Olson (MBA ’14). “We want to compete on better experiences, which is a whole different way of thinking about it.”

Image
Peter Olson and Amanda Lojewski Presenting Capital One’s Challenge to Darden Students

The question they pose is a broad one: “What is the future of rewards and financial services?”

The open-ended nature of the challenge is one that holds true across all 14 groups, from PBS (What is the best role for non-profit, public broadcast organizations to play in our increasingly connected world?) to Land O’Lakes (How would you increase understanding about GMOs and non-GMOs in the world food supply?).

This is intentional, says Professor Jeanne Liedtka, and it’s one of the aspects that makes the IDEA course such a contrast to the case method students have used so far. In a case, a question is framed, data is supplied, and the set of options for addressing the issue are relatively clear.

“This class gives them none of those,” Professor Liedtka said. “So they struggle with framing the problem, they struggle especially with getting the data, because the data is not easy to find, and then they struggle with the innovation part – to generate a set of solutions that’s not obvious from the outset.”

In helping students confront these difficulties, she says, “we create a set of expectations and beliefs about what decision-making looks like in the real world.”

In the Capital One room, the self-named “Dragons Team” (Stu Jansen, Eric Chen, Tim Brookins, and Gabriel Estrada) want more data. “We’re talking about incentivizing behaviors – it would be very helpful to have customer lifetime value statistics, spending statistics – do we have access to that?” Jansen asks.

Image
Capital One Takes Student Questions

Olson tells the group:

“I can hear in a lot of these questions, you guys are trying to hone in, get more specific. We actually want this to be very open-ended and broad. Because we want to challenge how things are being done.”

Afterwards, the Dragons debrief in the hallway.

“We’re going to have to get that data on our own,” Jansen concludes. “They were focused on the ideas component, but we want it to be executable.”

“But it’s a good point,” Chen adds, “that if you limit your scope, you lose out on potential ideas.”

The design-thinking mindset is sinking in.

Two weeks later…

Students have created design criteria and gathered research.



WATCH as students work through the anxiety and ambiguity of the process

This is the heart of innovation, explains Professor Marc Lipson, another member of the faculty team. “You have to hold off on thinking about solutions and then let the little observations that you gather guide you in unexpected ways,” he said. “And it’s hard to hold off.”

Over at the Capital One group, the Dragons have gathered ideas about harnessing the power of positive peer pressure via social media and tying rewards to financial responsibility, among other things.

Image

“I feel much better after today than I did last week,” Stu Jansen confides.

In fact, all the teams seem energized. Over the next few days, they’ll build the research and ideas they gathered into short “napkin pitches” – their first chance to put together potential concepts, and the next step in their learning journey.

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Financial Times Ranks UVA Darden No. 3 in the World for Entrepreneurship

Financial Times today ranked the University of Virginia Darden School of Business the No. 3 MBA program in the world for entrepreneurship.

This ranking recognizes the success of entrepreneurs from within the Darden community and the support that the Darden School and its global alumni network provide them.

“Darden has built one of the leading entrepreneurial ecosystems in all of graduate business education,” said Darden Dean Scott Beardsley. “The combination of Darden’s Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the School’s outstanding faculty and committed alumni, and the impact of the University of Virginia — with its strongholds in business, law, engineering, medicine and life sciences — is a powerful one for fostering remarkable entrepreneurial leaders.”

The Financial Times entrepreneurship ranking methodology considers each school’s entrepreneurial activity and successes, and the level of support provided both by the school and its alumni.

Darden received high marks for helping entrepreneurs start, finance and recruit talent to their ventures. Darden’s alumni also ranked near the top for helping entrepreneurs access a network that enabled them to advance their startups.

“Darden’s commitment to inspiring entrepreneurial thinking and action among its students rests on a foundation of world-class faculty, vast curricular and co-curricular entrepreneurship offerings, access to a worldwide network of advisors, and deep engagement with the entrepreneurial ecosystem at the University and beyond,” said Sean Carr, executive director of the Batten Institute. “We are proud of this recent recognition of our global standing, and it energizes us to do even more to help activate the next generation of entrepreneurs from Darden.”

Darden’s entrepreneurial ecosystem offers:

  • Merit-based scholarships for entrepreneurially oriented students from around the world
  • Leading-edge faculty, whose work in entrepreneurship and innovation includes breakthrough ideas on effectuation and design thinking
  • Diverse and extensive entrepreneurship-related MBA courses and ongoing curricular innovations
  • Venture incubation and acceleration, hosted by Darden at the W.L. Lyons Brown III i.Lab at UVA
  • A venture internship program, supporting MBA students to join startups or VC firms
  • Support for University-wide competitions, research partnerships and conferences
  • Online courses, including specializations in design thinking and agile development
  • Tight linkages with entrepreneurial hubs in Silicon Valley and Washington, D.C.
  • Global Business Experiences for students in Stockholm (with a view on sustainability) and Barcelona (for strategy as design)
“The Darden School’s mission is to improve the world by developing and inspiring responsible leaders who are both global and entrepreneurial, and this latest ranking signals that we are meeting that challenge,” said Beardsley.

The Financial Times ranking follows the announcement earlier this year by the National Venture Capital Association naming Charlottesville the fastest-growing venture capital ecosystem in the nation, driven by investments secured by several Darden-supported ventures.
