Session Details: Session 1801

Using Experiential Exercises in the Strategy Classroom (I)

Track T

Date: Sunday, October 12, 2008


Time: 13:00 – 14:30


Room: Salon 15

Session Chair:
Brian Boyd, City University of Hong Kong

This is the first part of a workshop that will address methods for the effective use of experiential exercises in a classroom setting. Main topics will include techniques to link activities to strategy concepts, and managing the follow-up discussion of an activity. Sources for new exercises will also be reviewed. The workshop will take a hands-on format, and the bulk of the session will be devoted to the use and discussion of two sample exercises. The first activity is a brief warm-up or icebreaker on group processes. The second activity is more complex, and simulates decision-making and coordination challenges typical of multinational corporations. We will complete and debrief both exercises, and then focus on broader issues associated with the use of experiential activities in the classroom.
