1) Competency Model: Haas is linking all of its courses to a set of 10 capabilities that provide a compelling “competency model” for innovative leadership. These capabilities are highly valued in the marketplace and rooted in the social sciences.
2) Problem Finding and Framing: Haas has created a new required course and set of application opportunities for developing deeper”thinking problem”solvers who are more disciplined “upstream” at the problem finding and problem framing stages.
3) Supporting Culture: For the first time in Haas’s history, the school has articulated a set of four Defining Principles conducive to innovative leadership (e.g, “Question the status quo.”). They have coded these in all of their processes, including admissions, hiring, orientation, teaching, and events.
