Operations Discussions

Two professors – two opinions

IE Business School’s Professors of Operations Management, Luis Miravitlles and Felipe Amado Quintana have begun a new educational practice within their Operations and Supply Chain Management classes in different programmes such as the Executive MBA and the GMBA+.
Both professors prepared additional multimedia material for the MRW (multimedia) case study written by Professor Miravitlles. This additional material consists of 7 mini- discussions between both professors. Through a role play they adopt opposing roles to discuss the most important points of the case study. By using this methodology they provide students with a starting point for the class discussion (videoconference, discussion board). The objective of this material is to take the case discussion a step further and to have a deeper insight in the decision making process. This approach is ideal for executive and in-company classes where students have to focus on decision making justified with solid arguments.

For both professors this approach was seen to “enhance the learning experience through collaboration in the development process, learning different points of view. And at the end of the day this leads to a more motivating and enriched experience for the students.”
