Open Day Event By SPJGSM

On Sunday, 23rd July 2017, I got an exclusive invitation to attend the Open Day event which is organised for familiarisation and networking for new students of S P Jain School of Global Management (SPJGSM).

The First session by Prof. Christopher Abraham, It’s about smart decision making – the neuroscience behind making decisions. He has also discussed “How Brain Science Can Make Us Smarter & Better Decision Makers” with students.

He has also explained the specialised areas of the brain and Problems with the Pygmalion effect and some proposed solutions with students and parents at Open Day Event.

The Second session by Dr C J Meadows, Director of i2i – The Innovation & Insight Centre at SPSGM, discussed innovative Design Thinking and Ideas during the event with students and their parents.

How can we create initiatives in business, government, charity, and beyond that provide radical value and engaging acceptance, like the iPod, the mouse, Singapore MOM (4 hours of service in 10 minutes), and PEEK (a mobile clinic for $500, not $150,000)? A great place to start is Design Thinking (DT), honed by award-winning design & innovation firm IDEO, which originated Bank of America’s Keep the Change Program (USD 3.1 billion of savings across 12 million customers). In this interactive session DT-Intro, Dr Meadows introduced DT tools & techniques from IDEO, shared stories of remarkable innovations, and lead creative exercises.

The event was followed by Q&A between the students and professors that left the students wanting for more such interactions in their days to come.
