If you answer "yes" to most of these questions, please contact us to discuss how we can work together.
1. Is there a particular challenge you wish to solve?
While each of our custom programs is built from the ground up with every new partner, our material is reflective of our faculty's expertise and areas of research. Knowing the specific challenge you wish to address will help us involve the right faculty right away and create program material based on the most current research relevant to your situation.
2. Could this challenge be addressed efficiently in small teams?
We integrate action learning projects into most of our programs. Could your situation be examined sufficiently during the five days our custom programs generally require?
3. Do you have an idea of the timeframe for the program?
Our custom programs are led by MIT's most senior faculty, all of whom are world renowned researchers and widely sought after speakers and consultants. Having an approximate timetable will help us be more expeditious with your time and ours.
4. Do you know a specific person in your organization who will serve as the executive sponsor?
Each of our custom programs is a collaboration, requiring considerable commitment from both sides. In our experience with past and current corporate partners, we have found that dedicated senior-level leadership involvement throughout the program is essential to ensuring its success.

Microsoft recently announced a significant restructuring in hopes of reclaiming its lost market share and the trust of its customers. In response, many are asking, “Is restructuring the answer? What changes will Microsoft need to make to regain its competitive edge?”
The Lean Forward Approach
According to Steven Spear, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan and recognized expert on high velocity organizations, the most successful organizations are the ones creating high value with their products, in less time, using less effort. These organizations, says Spear, use the lean forward approach: they consistently seek immediate clarification and amplification of their customer’s voice by leaning into their users’ domain to discover the problems as well as delights of their experience.
Would you like in-flight Wi-Fi on your next flight? It will cost you a premium in addition to any movies or food that you might purchase on board. If you’re traveling on a plane that offers Gogo, and would like to connect to the internet, it will cost $14 for a daily pass, and $39.95 for a monthly pass, according to Gogo’s “Buy Before You Fly“ service pricing chart. Forget to buy access before you fly? That will cost you extra, too. Should it? I don’t think so.
Airlines are not innovating and enhancing the in-flight entertainment experience. Instead, they are falling back on their existing model of adding new fees and raising existing fees for services. Fees do not create value—they create customer service headaches.
