About this Event

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

This is a brand new workshop format for 6 Degrees and it is also completely unique for our area. Think of it as MANAGEMENT BOOK CLUB. Over drinks and nibbles, we will discuss real-life business challenges met by the managers of real companies - large or small. You will be presented with the same information they had at hand when crucial decisions had to be made, such as financial information, marketing research, or customer data.

Come along to improve your management, leadership, and strategy skills with a method which is used in MBA programs all over the world!

ABOUT THE HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL CASE METHOD

Pioneered by HBS faculty and one of the highlights of the HBS experience, the case method is a profound educational innovation that presents the greatest challenges confronting leading companies, nonprofits, and government organizations—complete with the constraints and incomplete information found in real business issues—and places the participant in the role of the decision maker. There are no simple solutions; yet through the dynamic process of exchanging perspectives, countering and defending points, and building on each other's ideas, participants become adept at analyzing issues, exercising judgment, and making difficult decisions—the hallmarks of skillful leadership.

ABOUT THIS SESSION'S CASE

With more than 25,000 stores in 75 countries and $21 billion in annual revenues, Starbucks is the largest roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world. Howard Schultz's strategic leadership was critical in turning Starbucks around. He is now hoping that his second retirement from the company he built from the ground up will be his final one. In the meantime, Kevin Johnson, the new CEO, faces several challenges. In particular, the question of maintaining core competencies and how to achieve future growth, both domestically and internationally, are central to the case. The case also focuses on diversification, as Starbucks is branching out in new areas such as menu extensions including offering alcohol as well as rolling out coffee bars with high-end offerings such as a $12 cup of coffee.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION
