Welcome!

I’m looking forward to:

 

  México Watch

When Andrés Manuel López Obrador ran for office, he promised to rid México of corruption, reduce the crazy murder rate, and replace technocratic, market-friendly policies with actions that put the “poor and forgotten” first. How’s that working out?

  What I’m Up To...

After receiving the vaccinations, I have been seeking a return to normalcy — only to discover that, as with all things, I cannot return to the past. I can only create a new normal — a better normal — and that’s what I intend to do.
One note of unfinished business: the situation in Haïti continues to deteriorate, and my Covid-delayed project, like my life, has to re-create a new normal.

 

  MOOCs

I have continued to offer my MOOCs by invitation, to former students.
After experimenting with larger class sizes during the early days of the pandemic, I have decided to return to a smaller number to increase social presence and to allow more people to interact. “Mini-MOOCs,” I guess.
As always, all materials are provided; there are no fees. I think that large-scale MOOCs embody everything that is bad about Distance Learning, which is bad enough to begin with. I am rerunning some of my most popular MOOCs, all updated with new material:
  Agile: New Business Creation
  Speed: The Misplaced Virtue
  Blockchain, Bitcoin & the Future of Trust
  The No-Nonsense Job Hunt
  Cyber War
  Why Your On-Line Strategy Will Fail — And How You Can Prevent It

Live an amazing life! Decide to learn, to create, and to do more — today. Use technology to do things that were unimaginable yesterday. Never settle.

 Cool Stuff in Wayne’s World...

Innovation Project

 Innovation Project

Mission: Integrate innovation into the curriculum. I have been teaching individual creativity and corporate innovation since 2005. Everyone wants it; no one wants to work for it. I can change that.

 Distance Learning Project

Mission: Make distance learning as good as — or better than — one-on-one tutoring, by any pedagogical standard. Am I there yet? No — but I can reliably beat every platform on the market. Want to see how?

 Emerging Business Paradigm

Mission: Re-think business and business education. All you know about business is wrong. All you know about business is right. This apparent paradox drives the Emerging Business Paradigm. Want to know more?

 The Music Project

Mission: Getting to the stage was going to be easy. Not so much. Whenever I think I’ve made progress, I hear the Precision Guided Thinkers jeering, and it’s da capo al fine.

 Change the World

Mission: Make a real difference. Change the world. A little ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Probably. Completely nuts? I won’t disagree. But if we don’t try, who will?

 The Writing Project

Mission: Thank-you, Donald Kaul, who taught me when to write; Richard Freed, who taught me how to write; Anne Lamott, who taught me why to write, and Tom Wolfe, who taught me not to write.
