Business School (HBS) will host a new course for senior executives, Leadership
and Corporate Accountability – China (LCACH), at the Harvard
Center Shanghai from May 27-30, 2014.
The recent call for improved corporate transparency is changing how
businesses around the world operate. Companies must address conflicting
demands from a variety of stakeholder groups including investors,
customers, employees and governmental agencies. Increasingly, they face
regulations and public scrutiny that challenges executive leadership and
demands greater ethical, economic and business prudence.
Hosted in partnership with Tsinghua
University’s School of Economics and Management, LCACH will give
executive leaders of both regional and global companies the tools to
enrich their strategic governance processes and lead their companies
ethically and profitably in this era of increased accountability.
"We're looking forward to partnering with Tsinghua University to bring
this new program to a wider
audience,” said Das Narayandas, James J. Hill Professor of Business
Administration and Senior Associate Dean and Chair of Executive
Education and Publishing. “Our partnership with Tsinghua University has
helped us develop a program tailored to address various global and
China-specific strategic governance issues. The course provides best
practices for handling these issues in the context of China’s economy,
regulatory climate and social culture, as well as showing how companies
can best navigate global markets.”
“When putting together the new program in collaboration with HBS, we
realized that a study into ethics and social responsibility is not only
a better choice, but a must for Chinese companies of today,” said Bin
Yang, Professor of Business Strategy and Policy and chair of Leadership
and Corporate Accountability—China . “An early move in taking this
course will give forward-looking Chinese entrepreneurs a competitive
edge in their journey ahead.”
Designed for executives in key decision-making roles at the divisional
level and above in large established companies, LCACH will be
particularly valuable for C-level executives, general managers, senior
vice presidents, directors, heads of business units, and partners. Over
the course of the program, executives will work with HBS faculty to
examine their various responsibilities as decision makers and develop a
system of checks and balances that promote productive strategy. Program
curriculum is based on the highly successful Leadership and Corporate
Accountability, a required MBA course for all Harvard Business
"We draw upon research from a variety of disciplines including
economics, law, psychology and organizational behavior to help
executives holistically enrich their decision-making processes,” said
Rohit Deshpandé, Sebastian S. Kresge Professor of Marketing and faculty
chair of Leadership and Corporate Accountability—China. “Coupling
this research with lessons from real-world companies, this program
encourages executives to fully address leadership and accountability
from new perspectives that may otherwise be harder to access amid the
daily pressures of their jobs."
Leadership and Corporate Accountability – China will be presented
in both Chinese and English with simultaneous translation. In addition
to Harvard Business School’s renowned case study method, the program
will also incorporate faculty lectures and group discussions.
Leadership and Corporate Accountability
– China will run from May 27–30, 2014 and will take place at Harvard
Center Shanghai. Please visit http://www.exed.hbs.edu/programs/lcach

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
