Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC): Firms, Clusters, & Economic Development
The MOC course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, microeconomic perspective. MOC is a distinctive course platform developed at Harvard by
Professor Michael Porter and a team of colleagues at the Institute. The
course is specifically designed to be taught at Harvard and in collaboration with educational institutions around the world. The course is not only an educational vehicle but also a tool to enable an institution
and its people to influence and support economic development in the country and region.
New CEO Workshop
The New CEO Workshop at Harvard Business School brings together, by invitation only, a small group of newly appointed chief executive officers and CEO designates. In keeping with the mission of HBS—to educate leaders who make a difference in the world—this workshop address the distinctive challenges facing first-time chief executives in large, complex enterprises. The workshop offers a unique perspective from which to explore both the predictable and the surprising aspects of becoming a CEO.
Value-Based Health Care Delivery
Since the publication of Redefining Health Care, there has been strong interest in how to actually implement the principles of value-based health care delivery in practice. Many organizations have already begun to apply these principles, from large multi- hospital providers, to small group practices, health plans, and employers. We are committed to develop a body of material to inform and motivate practitioners to restructure and improve care delivery in all parts of the health care system. Significant improvements in value will require major strategic and organizational changes in how health care is delivered, measured, and paid for, rather than simply incremental improvement of existing practice.
Creating Shared Value
This intensive two-day leadership program on "Creating Shared Value: Economic Success and Social Impact" presents a new body of thinking about the role of business in society that goes beyond philanthropy, social responsibility and even sustainability to define a new understanding of how to achieve economic success. The program brings together senior corporate managers in both line and staff roles from the U.S. and abroad, together with selected leaders from nonprofits and government entities interested in strategic partnerships with businesses. The curriculum is primarily targeted toward corporate leaders in strategy, operations and innovation and those with overall responsibility for sustainability or corporate impact.
