Based on the highly-rated on-campus course hosted over two days at the MIT Sloan School of Management, this online program broadens access to the knowledge of industry thought leaders. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from Nelson Repenning and Donald Kieffer, who integrated decades of industry practice and academic investigation to create Dynamic Work Design.

You’ll develop an understanding of how to go about implementing improvement strategies; why improvement strategies usually fail; the psychological reasons behind learning, change, and motivation; principles of good work design; and how to go about problem solving effectively. 

The Business Process Design for Strategic Management online course culminates in the identification of issues within your organization and the development of a structured problem-solving document based on the A3 approach to continuous improvement which was first employed at Toyota.
