Event Details

 

The CLUB is excited to announce our July event, “Surviving and Thriving in a 24/7 Economy: How to Diagnose and Change Work Patterns”, the first event in our quarter-long series on Challenges in the Global Work Space. 

At the event, Professor Melissa Valentine (Stanford University) will lead a discussion of a seminal Harvard Business School case about finding balance in a 24/7 economy.  The case takes an in-depth look at “life on a product development team, the behaviors that are rewarded, and the difficult tradeoffs members often have to make as a result.”  The session will be highly interactive to help you apply insights from the case to your own life and work place.   

 AGENDA:

6:00 PM          Registration and Networking Reception (Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served)

7:00 PM          Surviving and Thriving in a 24/7 Economy: How to Diagnose and Change Work Patterns

8:30 PM          Closing Remarks and Networking

A limited number of copies of the case (13 pages) will be available from 6 p.m. on July 28th during registration and networking time.  A summary will also be provided.  If you are interested in reviewing the case before the program, you can purchase a copy at www.hbsp.harvard.edu  (The PEARL Project: Work Patterns at Ditto (A), Leslie A. Perlow, and Laura Barr: Work Patterns at Ditto (B), Leslie A. Perlow).   However, the session will be structured so that everyone can participate whether or not they have read the case in advance.
