商業策略個案討論

Stephen Downing

Stephen 來自美國,畢業自 Tulane University 並主修商學,後來於交通大學取得MBA資格,目前是交大的博士候選人,專攻商業競爭與策略。平時他喜歡游泳、彈吉他,最喜歡的電影是1994年的《黑色追緝令》。


課程簡介

本課程以哈佛商業評論(Harvard Business Review)與史隆管理評論(Sloan Management Review)作為主題,探討現在世界上最被注意的管理策略。

本課程不僅僅是討論商業新聞(如果對商業新聞有興趣,請參考另一堂課),更重要的,我們要透過精采的個案來理解商業的本質 ─ 企業如何做決策、企業如何創造價值、企業如何獲取價值(what they do to create and capture value)。

透過這堂課,學員將能更加理解商業運作的邏輯。如果你的口說已有一定程度,本課程將幫助你突破瓶頸、再往上進步一個層級。如果你需要應對外國客戶,本課程將幫助你擁有源源不絕的話題。

課程目標

  • 增進商用英語能力
  • 增進商用單字量與閱讀能力
  • 增進表達想法與參與討論的能力

進行方式

老師將於每週課前指定當週的文章,每週1篇短文。課程前半段,學員將練習總結、回顧、討論文章內容,老師將會適時提出問題以引導討論。

課程後半段,我們將結合課程內容與自身的職場案例,我們將試著回答幾個核心問題:

  • What have the articles made you realize about your business circumstances and direction? 
  • How do you agree or disagree with the authors as the strategic matter pertains to your own professional experiences?

學員將有許多機會練習“建立”自己的想法與論點,同時面對他人的意見與質疑,這都是英語職場上很重要的能力之一。

Stephen's teaching materials were solid and academic. Each session he listed questions of the key points in the articles and then brainstormed the real-world issues from our own work environment. Overall, the class was solid and Stephen tried to stimulate students' thinking and exchange the ideas.

Stephen is well prepared and has rich experience in business management. Besides, he's a patient and a nice teacher! Highly recommended for those who want to improve their speaking in Enlight in business-related topics. By the way, you have to be well prepared and open to talk and share as well, discussions are generally based and extended on the material given before the class.

Stephen indeed delivers a high-quality business class. I would recommend it to those who want to learn business knowledge or to further elevate their understanding in business settings. One last thing you should bear in mind is that getting prepared before the class by reviewing those materials he provides is a must, and you will totally benefit from it.

老師每堂課會從指定文章中帶出問題和討論,同時也有很詳盡的解說,從這堂課中學到很多商業的趨勢、觀點和概念,也可以有機會用自己會的字彙和了解表達自己的意見。對於想練習口說、閱讀和思考的人很有幫助!老師帶討論非常專業,也非常鼓勵學生發言,很喜歡這堂課!

It's pretty good overall. I enjoyed learning new things and perspective from my classmates. Everyone was willing to share their opinions and thoughts about the topic and even beyond the topic, which was great and interesting. I think Stephen did prepare the class well with all the materials ready and questions ready. And the class met my expectation as well.

Stephen is a good discussion facilitator. Recommend this class to people who want to practice English speaking and to cultivate a strategical mindset.

The course was very engaging. Stephen encourages all of us to participate and to offer our opinions, while linking different topics from different articles together in order to spark deeper discussions. I really enjoyed the class. Not only was it informative and a great platform to speak relatively advanced English, but also it was very interactive in a sense that conversations between other classmates were possible under the guidance of Stephen. I would recommend this class to anyone who had just came back from English speaking countries and are fearful of loosing the opportunity to speak English as well as as the chance to be involved in open discussions about diverse issues that often occur in the contexts of Western cultures. I am from a Law and Social Psychology background, but find the course welcoming to people of all sorts of knowledge backgrounds. It's great.
