Transformative Innovations in Health Care - Case Teaching Workshop with Professor Amar Bhidé

We invite all teachers and researchers at all higher education institutes in Sweden to a free case teaching workshop at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) with professor Amar Bhidé, renowned teacher and researcher.

What can we learn from transformative medical advances in the past when we educate students for the future?


About the workshop: The case teaching workshop is based on prof. Bhidé’s highly praised course ‘Lessons from Transformational Medical Advances’ at the Harvard Business School, which pedagogically outlines and discusses various historical cases of medical innovations (drugs, medical procedures, or medical devices) and outlines how to best use those cases in classroom settings.


Details: The workshop will take place on June 14 at 09:00-16:00 in room Torsten at SSE. Lunch and fika will be provided, and the workshop will end with a (voluntary) mingle session with participants and researchers from SSE.


How to register: Register here. To register, you have to confirm attendance on June 14, answer a short survey (for prof. Bhidé to adapt the session to participants) and prepare by reading two cases, provided to you by SSE for free.


About the instructor: Prof. Bhidé is the Thomas Schmidheiny Professor of International Business at Tufts University, and author of several bestselling books, including The Origin and Evolution of New Business and the Venturesome Economy. He formerly taught at Harvard Business School, Columbia University, and at various executive education and PhD education modules around the world.


“Teaching innovation through case studies helps participants understand how similar problems were overcome in the past, and provide reminders of forgotten solutions. For problems that are unprecedented, historical analyses may improve understanding of why these problems did not previously arise and suggest ideas for what might be done to solve them now.


The cases highlight problems of bottlenecks and linkages, how new products and services are the result of extended interactions between many individuals and organizations, including scientists, engineers, designers, marketers, financiers, regulators and not the least, users.”
