We have a big dream here at the MIX: to create organizations that are fundamentally fit for the future—and genuinely fit for human beings. As much as "modern management" has delivered to the world, we believe it is time to radically rethink how we mobilize people and resources to productive ends. And we believe that's not an undertaking for any one individual or organization--it's everybody's problem.
Over the last decade, the Internet has had a profound impact on business. It has spawned a slew of new business models and has helped make operating models vastly more efficient. By contrast, the Web’s impact on management models has been relatively modest.
The MIX and HCL are pleased to announce the winners of the first ever MBA M-Prize. Since the seven Finalists were announced on April 5, the teams have been applying a core principle of open source management innovation: working to refine a good idea into a great Hack. The first round judges provided each team with comments, and MIX coaches worked with the teams to focus the upgrades and outline the experimental plan. After all, an incentive was available that most professors don't offer: a budget of $50,000 to test the winning Hack within HCL.
