Second, the School must act as a catalyst to help small, entrepreneurial companies bring innovations to market.

Strategic Questions Informing the School’s Strategy
We conceive of the strategy of the School in terms of addressing three central questions:
- What are the School’s core values?
- What are the sources of the School’s global distinctiveness?
- What resource model will fuel the vision of the School?
We have the following four strategic initiatives, which will concentrate our efforts to achieve our mission and vision.
In addition to articulating our core values, areas of distinctiveness and our resource engine, the School also must exhibit strategic discipline to communicate what we will not do. We must have the discipline to say “No thank you” to activities that are not aligned with our values, distinctiveness and resources.
