Dean Venky of the recently established School of Applied and Engineering Sciences is faced with a range of challenges and opportunities as he presides over the introduction of a brand new school of engineering at Harvard University. His chances contain a small but top-notch faculty, an ample endowment, and the possible to collaborate with the other schools within Harvard. His challenges comprise creating linkages across the university, bringing the finest faculty and students, and establishing a strategy that can make Harvard engineering as well known as its other schools. Pupils must examine the strengths and weaknesses the political challenges of organizational change, and the most suitable strategy for the Dean of the engineering school to follow.
