The 2020 Alumni lab is postponed due to Covid-19. We eagerly await the resumption of global travel!
Prior to the program start, Thunderbird will work with the client to determine one key question (e.g., “how can we…?”, “what if we…?”) that will serve as the basis for the week’s work. Throughout the week, participants will engage in discovery and exploration to develop unique and innovative ideas to address this key question. This will include site visits to the client’s office, visits to relevant ecosystems stakeholders, and presentations from local experts.
Thunderbird faculty and various Indonesian stakeholders will provide expert content on consulting best practices, the local business environment and on-call support to Alumni Consultants. Alumni will work collaboratively with the client organization and gain a deep cultural and economic experience that would not be possible without local insight.
One of the best parts of the Alumni Lab is how T-birds work with each other to achieve results to be proud of; and build lifelong relationships!
In Santiago, Quito and Bogota, we worked with growing and ambitious companies that represented a range of industries and challenges. This year in Jakarta we will work with ONE outstanding client and split into groups to develop final deliverables. The profiles from past years, below, illustrate what the Lab experience is all about and the type of client we will seek in Jakarta.
Alumni will engage in discovery the first days of the program so they can more effectively ideate around the key client question; they will orient themselves with the client organization and learn about the Indonesian context from faculty, local ecosystem stakeholders and experts. By the middle of the week, participants will shortlist ideas for analysis and divide themselves into groups to validate opportunities. At the end of the week, they will present proposed solutions to the client at a closing event.
Note: *Actual working days will be based on individual client needs.
