What Managers Can Learn From Philosophy
I have signed up for this course in Coursera some weeks ago but have forgotten about it. On top of that, I am currently busy following two courses under their signature programme anyway, and so I wasn't actively looking for any new courses to follow.
I was reminded of it by my colleague today and I went to checked it out: On Strategy: What Managers Can Learn From Philosophy.
I spent some time on it this morning and almost finished the first lecture and it is really very interesting.
There is indeed much to learn about strategy and change from the philosophical point of view - the lecturer posits that there are two kinds of change and the one that he is teaching here refers to change in perception, as opposed to change in reality.
I have actually joined in quite late but for this course, I am allowed to readjust my time line and I did just that. I will be finishing the first lecture soon and looking forward to the peer reviewed assignment due end of this week.
I am very happy for these MOOC programmes now so readily and easily made available to us. With the Learner theme (under the Gallup StrengthsFinder) as my #4 strength, this is really like a learner's dream come true.
I will soon have 4 completed programmes under my belt and looking out for more.
