Is your firm “customer centric”? Do you really know what that much-employed term means? Most companies claim they are constantly thinking about customers yet consistently fail to deliver solutions to their customers’ most pressing needs. In a presentation based on his new book Reorganize for Resilience, Harvard Business School Professor Ranjay Gulati reveals how “resilient” companies—those that prosper in good times and bad—are driving growth and increasing profitability by immersing themselves in the lives of their customers. By reorienting their organizations to be proactive, flexible, and truly customer-centric, these pioneering companies have spiked growth even in the face of some of the most daunting economic conditions in modern history.

HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL ALUMNI CLUB OF LONDON - SOCIAL ENTERPRISE SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST.
The first two social enterprise leaders to benefit from the HBS London Alumni Club Social Enterprise Scholarship have now been chosen by the Club’s Scholarship. They are
Shaun Doran - Chief Executive of the Furniture Resource Centre Group http://www.frcgroup.co.uk/ which runs businesses to create profits and opportunities to improve the lives of people in poverty and unemployment by running social businesses that are successful as commercial businesses and also deliver social and environmental benefits. It creates training and work placement opportunities for people from long-term unemployment and socially excluded groups for example through its furnishing and removals business which provides goods and services to thousands of people throughout the country and provides a truly one stop furnishing service to social landlords.

Katy Emck – Executive Director - Fine Cell Work - www.finecellwork.co.uk - an organisation which helps rehabilitate prisoners by giving them the chance to spend their long hours of in-cell “lock up” constructively, earning and saving money through skilled, creative craftwork. Prisoners earn money from the sales of their own products and acquire a meaningful skill, while helping them reflect on and rebuild their lives and gain a pride and purpose which can arrest the cycle of re-offending, enabling them to care better for themselves – and others. In 2008 403 inmates spent approximately 400,000 hours stitching in their cells for Fine Cell Work: an average of 20 hours per week per prisoner of painstaking, creative activity done entirely voluntarily. In the same year their work sold in three continents as well as to English Heritage and the V & A – a major commission designed by the prisoners to be included in the V&A’s exhibition on quilting beginning in March 2010. . All of Fine Cell Work’s classes have waiting lists and in the last five years we have had 72 requests from prisons which we at present do not have the resources to meet The organisation employs 6 people and 66 volunteers run needlework classes in 17 prisons in England and Scotland. Has an annual budget of £ 412,000 funded by 4% individual donors, 40% fees for service/products, 53% private foundation, 1% government, 2% corporate funding;
They will participate in the course “Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM) course at the HBS campus from 18 to 24 July 2010 and will also be provided with funding to spend additional time in the US on a study tour, visiting social enterprises, meeting US community leaders and learning about different enterprise models

VIRTUAL LEARNING SERIES - UPCOMING CALLS FOR Q1 2010
February 8, 2010 - 12-1pm EST - Professor Michael Wheeler
Negotiation Ethics - Whenever we negotiate, our values are put to the test. Our words and deeds reflect what we think we owe our counterparts – if anything—in regard to candor, fairness, and the possible use of pressure tactics. Professor Michael Wheeler, co-author of What’s Fair? Ethics for Negotiators (with Carrie Menkel-Meadow), will discuss the challenge of preserving one’s own integrity in world where we often have conflicting obligations and others may not be as scrupulous.
March 10, 2010 - 12-1pm EST - Professor Noam Wasserman
Founders’ Dilemma – Recipient of the Class of 2009 Faculty Award, Professor Noam Wasserman will discuss how early decisions around money and power in entrepreneurial ventures have important long-term consequences for founders and their ventures. Professor Wasserman’s research indicates that a founder who gives up more equity to attract cofounders, new hires, and investors builds a more valuable company than one who parts with less equity. More often than not, however, those superior returns come from replacing the founder with a professional CEO more experienced with the needs of a growing company. This fundamental tension requires founders to make "rich" versus "king" trade-offs to maximize either their wealth or their control over the company.

Despite its difficulties, the past year has been productive for the HBS Alumni Club of London with the launching of the Club’s new web site and the introduction of two new competitions in addition to many other activities. The first contest was to identify and select 2 leaders from the not-for-profit sector as recipients of the newly established HBS Alumni Club of London’s Social Enterprise Scholarship Fund. The chosen candidates – nominated by HBS Alumni Club members – will attend HBS’ Strategic Perspectives in Non-Profit Management course in July 2010. See www.exed.hbs.edu/programs/spnm. Winners will be announced in the next few weeks.
The second competition is the inaugural Alumni New Venture Contest. The London HBS Alumni Club is one of 8 worldwide that has agreed to participate in this trial run.

The Silent Auction in support of the Social Enterprise Scholarship Fund - held by email in the run up to the Xmas party and then finalised during the evening - raised about £12,500 for the Fund. As you will see from the events below, planning for the activities of 2010 is underway and I would be delighted to hear from any Alumni who have subjects and / or speakers that they would like to suggest.
