In this interview with CEDIM, Professor Tiffany discusses his strategic planning course. He explains that the course is part of the school’s “MBI” or “Masters of Business Innovation” program. He says that students are required to create a strategic business plan for an entrepreneurial venture. He goes on to say that the world is changing, and he is helping students to understand “dynamic capabilities.”
He states that the strategy taught at business schools today “is failing; it doesn’t work.” He says that 2/3 to ¾ of all business strategies fail, and the reason is that while “the formulation of the strategy got better, they forgot the academics to talk about how you execute the strategy.” He explains that his new strategy is “all about the customer.” He tries to communicate to students “that whatever they’re doing, the have got to focus on customers.”
Professor Tiffany has presented keynotes at conferences and programs throughout the world, including the European Facilities Management Association Conference, the Investment Management Certified Analyst Association’s annual meeting, the Innobiz Innovation Conference, the Securities Traders Association, the Irish Management Association and the Young Presidents’ Organization. He draws on his decades of experience as a professor and management consultant to engage and educate audiences in the US, Europe and Asia.
Professor Tiffany’s programs cover various business and economic topics, including the evolving global economy, the rise of China and its implications on the world, the development of the American economy, service excellence for the financial services and more.
