Collins & Porras, Building Your Company’s Vision, writes about a vision requiring a core ideology – itself composed of core values and a core purpose – and an envisioned future- composed of a BHAG and a Vivid Description of the Future. The implication is: teams that have shared core values and envisioned future will be more successful no matter how diverse the workforce (p. 68). The envisioned future is a vivid description of what it will be like to achieve the BHAG (p. 73).
I expect this has a unique significance to Baruch students because the school is the most diverse business school in the country.
Blog question: From your personal experience, what or how would you describe as the overall core values of students at Baruch and what would /how do you think most students would describe as their envisioned future? (In doing this consider whether the values you describe are consistent with the envisioned future)
You have a list of values from extra credit assignment on personal values to draw upon, as well as illustrations in the article. For full credit, you need to 1) draw upon and reference content in the article – demonstrating your understanding of the article, and 2) provide substantive comment on the blog entry of two other students.
