Leadership with Lou Gerstner at MIT
Leadership was the overriding objective of the graduate seminar I taught at MIT last Fall, – Technology-based Business Transformation http://esd.mit.edu/HeadLine/esd57.html , – which I will be teaching again in the Fall of 2008. I told the students at our first meeting that I hoped the course would help them develop or enhance their leadership skills, so they can better deal with the complex systems, complex markets and complex organizations they will likely encounter throughout their careers.
In the course, we used Lou Gertner’s book "Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance" http://www.amazon.com/Elephants-Dance-Inside-Historic-Turnaround/dp/0060523794 , which all students read and we discussed extensively in class. Given my professional relationship with Lou, with whom I worked closely in his nine years at IBM, I invited him to come lecture to the class. He accepted, but due to health problems we had to postpone his visit.
