Strategic Management Practices Issues Group

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

January 15, 2010: 7:30 AM - 8:45 AM

These breakfast discussion sessions are held in the Loop and are designed to be highly interactive, providing a forum of particular value to alumni responsible for developing, influencing or executing enterprise strategies and policies. There is no speaker at this event! The participants constitute the "panel," and everyone will have an opportunity to share their ideas. Also, this is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Breakfast) event, so feel free to bring a cup of coffee and something to enjoy during the conversation. Start your Friday morning by updating your MBA, discussing the latest management concepts with fellow Booth alums, extending your network, and still make it to the office by 9AM.

Event Details

This month’s discussion will focus on the impact of digital communications and mass collaboration in the workplace. Much more than a cultural or generational difference in the way people use technology, the Internet has transformed the way many companies operate. Don Tapscott has written about this phenomenon and its implications in his books Growing Up Digital and Wikinomics. His numerous articles include a series for Business Week magazine, from which this month's selections are chosen. See the event registration page for links to these articles.
