HBR Case Study goes interactive

without comments

The first thing I read in Harvard Business Review magazine, is the ‘Case Study’ section. Where a typical or unusual business case (fictional but very close to reality) is presented and some prominent experts, such as industry leaders or thought leaders are asked to take decisions based on the given scenario and facts.

Now HBR goes one step forward. In the current issue they opened up the decision making to all. The first HBR Interactive case study where you can Download the case study PDF (around 400K) and respond to the case study by entering your solution directly into the form at the end of the PDF.

More on the first HBR Interactive Case Study

without comments

SoulSoup’s guardian angel, and the founder of edublogs.org, James Farmer now an independent consultant and taking up edublogs and his other initiatives full time. Way to go mate! Wish you all the best for all your future endeavour. :)

In his words :

But come July 1st, the ball’s going to be totally in my court, I’m going to have my fate in my own hands, am not going to be able to complain about anyone else holding me back and am going to be responsible for not just the destiny of Edublogs but also paying the mortgage and feeding the family.

I can’t wait!

StudioDell : Where learning meets marketing

without comments

Check out StudioDell, the nicely categorized, simple ‘how to’ type video & audio tutorials (vodcasts) for Dell products. There are 3 channels, based on the type of user- Home, Small Business and IT Pro. At the home channel, you can share your stories by uploading your own video. Whereas in the IT Pro channel, some of the best practices are shared. You can download the videos too.

This, I believe, is the future of marketing. Providing useful information and knowledge about your product to your users, more they know about your product, more they will buy!

StudioDell is designed to help you get the most from your Dell experience. Through videos and podcasts, we’ll share Dell’s expertise on emerging technologies and use interactive tools to communicate directly with you.

Here goes the feeds

All Channels | Home | Small Business | IT Pro

There are plenty more feed options at there site, as well as iTunes subscription. Way to go Dell!
