BUSINESS 297D - TEC Thinking

New technologies have wide-ranging effects on society as well as benefits to customers. This class develops leadership ability through TEC Thinking, an approach to integrate three modes of thought - techno-strategic (combination of technological and industry perspectives), ethical (assessment of the range of non-transactional consequences), and creative (design of decisions to accomodate issues raised in the other two modes). We need to shift paradigms from the mechanistic, separated worldview that confines reason to one that sees systems and interdependencies, allowing the full use of our capacity for reason. 3 units.
