Based at the Harvard Business School, the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness is dedicated to the study of competition and its implications for company strategy; the competitiveness of nations, regions, and cities; and the relationship between competition and society. The Institute seeks to develop new theory, assemble bodies of data to test and apply the theory, and disseminate its ideas widely to scholars and practitioners in business, government, and non-governmental organizations such as universities, economic development organizations, and foundations.
The Institute is led by Michael E. Porter, Bishop William Lawrence University Professor. The Institute is dedicated to deepening, extending, and disseminating the body of research that Professor Porter has pioneered over the last two decades.
From January 9 - 13, 2012, Professor Michael E. Porter, together with other faculty, will teach the fifth annual one-week, full-time Value-Based Health Care Delivery Intensive Seminar. This non-credit, graduate-level program will be held at Harvard Business School and is open by application to Harvard MBA and MD students; others at Harvard pursuing health care-related courses of study; medical residents; junior physicians and clinicians at Boston area providers; and interested residents and clinicians from outside of Boston. The seminar utilizes case studies, guest protagonists, concept lectures, and other materials to present the fundamental principles of value-based health care delivery and examine organizations working to implement those principles in practice.
