espite a difficult economic environment, the Wisconsin School of Business has many things to celebrate. While the job market was tough, our students competed well thanks to their resourcefulness and work ethic and the school’s reputation for developing deep expertise in our graduates. Upgrades to our undergraduate program are strengthening students’ global competency, career readiness, and functional preparation. We made three strong faculty hires and aim to make even more next year. We have launched a second cohort in our customized Executive MBA program with Kohl’s. We are particularly proud of launching a unique Global Real Estate Master with three leading international business schools. We were able to persevere through this difficult period for one simple reason: We have built a strong and deep partnership between our students and alumni to invest in business education at Wisconsin. As a result, we entered this turbulent period with financial strength and momentum on our side. Many people played a role. Our students supported higher tuition and commencement giving campaigns. Our alumni, led by the example of the Wisconsin Naming Partners, made major and annual gifts. Faculty and staff parlayed these investments into stronger programs with a secure financial foundation. I believe that our students, alumni, and faculty and staff have provided a blueprint for how the university must adapt to the pressures confronting the state. Globalization and technology change have transformed industries, regions, and individual opportunities. Five of the 20 largest (highest-valued) companies in America are technology firms that did not even exist prior to 1975. Regions with a strong base of technology companies have thrived, while traditional manufacturing states in the Midwest have struggled and now face serious fiscal challenges. The winners in the labor market are college degree holders whose earnings have soared since

the 1970’s relative to workers with only a high school degree. A 2007 Commerce Department study showed college graduates could expect to earn more than $1 million more over their lifetimes. The good news for us is that these trends have made research universities extremely valuable. Higher education will be more important, not less, to the future of Wisconsin and the United States. Unfortunately, research universities become more expensive to fund as emerging countries compete to build their own. This creates a conundrum for Wisconsin: Just when it needs a great research university most to aid its economic transformation, it is finding it more challenging than ever to finance that university. The future success of the university will require a different partnership between the state, students, and alumni. Our students and alumni, recognizing that they earn large economic benefits from their college degrees, are taking greater responsibility for funding the university. These investments will be easier to sustain if the state can provide greater flexibility in how the university is governed and regulated. Wisconsin will make an important choice on this issue. We can ignore the change in fundamentals and risk a decline in the quality and stature of the UW—and see the potential attractiveness of Wisconsin to technology companies decline with it. Or we can respond to the changes in the economy, restructure the partnership that sustains the university, and enhance the opportunities for the state and its citizens. We cannot afford a status quo approach to management of the university. Thank you for setting a great example as the university looks to the future.

The Wisconsin School of Business has created a Diversity Advisory Board to develop and implement strategies to increase diversity in the school’s undergraduate and MBA programs. The board will also work to assess and improve diversity efforts in faculty and staff recruitment and retention.

He Aims to Improve Medical Records Ashutosh Gupta was 19 in 2007, when he was named among the 25 “most promising young entrepreneurs in the U.S.” by BusinessWeek. This spring, Gupta was back in the national spotlight for an innovative way to increase the efficiency of patient medical records. Gupta, a senior in business, and Jonathan Baran, a UW-Madison graduate student in biomedical engineering, were among 10 finalists in the CIMIT Prize for Primary Healthcare, a national competition that seeks ideas for technologic innovations with great potential to improve delivery of healthcare. (CIMIT is the Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology.)

Gupta and Baran received $10,000 to develop their idea and compete for the competition’s $150,000 top prize. The duo’s idea essentially is to present patient medical information using collaborative features of “Web 2.0” technologies such as comments, tagging, and real-time updates. They built their application for use with the Apple iPad, and other platforms are possible. Although their proposal didn’t win the competition, they still aim to develop and commercialize their concept, with the goal of making the tool available to doctors by early 2011.

Center of Actuarial Excellence The Actuarial Science, Risk Management and Insurance program at the Wisconsin School of Business has been named a Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) by the Society of Actuaries, the largest actuarial professional organization in the world. The new program bestows CAE distinction on actuarial science programs that meet specific requirements related to degree curriculum, graduate count, faculty composition, graduate quality, appropriate integration, connection to industry, and research/scholarship. Wisconsin was one of only 13 schools worldwide to be given the initial CAE designation.

Crazy for Crazylegs The Wisconsin School of Business was well represented at the 29th Annual Crazylegs Classic. The iconic rite of spring is an 8K-run/2 mile-walk that meanders throughout downtown Madison. More than 20,000 entrants participated this year, with proceeds benefitting UW athletics. Students from the full-time MBA program once again fielded a team organized by the student organization, the Graduate Business Association (GBA). The team didn’t set any course records, but students did have fun, helped a good cause, and strengthened ties with their classmates. The Crazylegs Classic is only one of several community-building projects for MBA students coordinated by GBA. It also coordinates students’ participation in the “Polar Plunge” into Lake Monona each winter to raise money for Special Olympics. The Wisconsin MBA team was the top fundraiser for this year’s “Polar Plunge” raising close to $14,000, almost three times as much as the next-highest team, proving once again that Wisconsin business students excel at fun and finance.

MBA students teamed up at the Crazylegs Classic.

All a Twitter Twitter and other social media tools increasingly are being used by the Wisconsin School of Business. For example, social media tools are used in the classroom to connect students with real-life practitioners and get an immediate gauge on consumer sentiment. The business school’s undergraduate Business Career Center advises students on ways of using social media to increase networking opportunities and practice writing skills to improve their career readiness. Melissa Anderson, director of public relations and new media at the Wisconsin School of Business, typically does 10-12 “tweets” daily as a way to generate interest in school activities and promote faculty expertise. She also follows other people’s Twitter feeds to identify “hot topics” in order to determine faculty expertise of particular interest to the media. Many units of the school are using Twitter and other social media tools to market their programs to prospective students, keep students informed of career opportunities, and keep in touch with their alumni. Dean Michael Knetter has been using Twitter since the beginning of the year. His posts often highlight economic news, report on his talks to alumni and other groups, and give a light-hearted look at being a business school dean. At first Knetter was skeptical that such short posts—tweets are limited to 140 characters—could have an impact. But now he’s a believer.

Royal Recognition for Real Estate The Wisconsin Real Estate Program has a new mark of distinction to add to its list of honors and recognitions. Its BBA and MBA programs were recently granted accreditation by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). RICS is a worldwide organization for professionals in property, land, construction, and related environmental issues, with 140,000 members in 146 countries. “This opens the door for our students to quick qualification for what is the most global designation in the real estate profession,” says François Ortalo-Magné, professor and chair of the real estate department. “It is another reflection of the increasingly global focus we are applying to our program.” The Wisconsin School of Business offers all kinds of opportunities for working professionals to continue their education and move up in their careers. That was the message of a marketing campaign launched by the school this spring. The “Move Up” campaign used billboards, radio spots, print ads, and more to spread the word about the school’s offerings to prospective students in the Milwaukee and Madison areas. Those offerings include the school’s Evening MBA and Executive MBA programs. The campaign also marketed the extensive professional development programs offered by the school’s Executive Education unit. More than 80 courses cover a wide variety of business and financial topics, everything from tactical marketing to strategic global sourcing. “The Wisconsin School of Business is committed to helping companies compete in the global marketplace by enhancing the skills of their current and emerging leaders,” said Dean Michael Knetter. “Our programs for working professionals are part of that commitment.”

Critical Issues Face Corporate Boards

The undergraduate program at the Wisconsin School of Business has made some big changes recently. The most significant change— implemented last fall—allows students to enroll in the business school as sophomores rather than having to wait until their junior year. The change was made to provide business undergraduates with more time and better opportunities to study abroad and secure business internships, and to benefit from a more fully integrated curriculum. Associate Dean for Master’s and Undergraduate Programs Ken Kavajecz says feedback received from students has been overwhelmingly positive. “Not having to wait a full two years to get accepted into the Wisconsin School of Business translates into less stress for students,” he says. “Admitted sophomores can now focus on their classes, studyabroad opportunities, leadership involvement, and pursuit of internships.” The next step begins this fall, when a limited number of high-merit, incoming UW-Madison freshmen will be enrolled directly into the business school. Kavajecz is excited about what the changes will mean for the students involved and for the Wisconsin School of Business. “Admitting a select number of freshmen directly into the business school will allow us to be more competitive with our business school peers.”

Smart Supply Chains Supply chain management is a key differentiator for corporations around the globe—and there’s a whole new world of possibilities By Bill Shepard


ince its origins in the 1980s, the field of supply chain management has emerged as a strategic game-changer for enterprises around the world. Now, experts say, it’s poised to play an even bigger role. Supply chain management encompasses a broad range of fundamental interactive processes in product design, procurement, production, distribution, and demand management. The promise of supply chain management is equally wide ranging: to deliver the right product in the right quantity at the right price to the right customer at the right time at the lowest-possible supply chain cost. “A ‘push’ view of supply chains, where product and materials move toward the final market, driven

by forecast demand, is being replaced by a ‘pull’ view where customers initiate supply chain decisions, configuring products and initiating orders that pull product through the chain,” says Professor John (Jack) Nevin, executive director of the Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management at the Wisconsin School of Business. “In a pull-oriented supply chain, demand signals are collaboratively shared with key supply chain partners.” Nevin says supply chain management responds to demand as it occurs, as opposed to responding to delayed orders or forecasts: “It integrates demand signals throughout the supply chain,” he says. In its early days, a “push” model of supply chain management was “divided into distinct silos—product development, procurement, production, logistics,

sales, and marketing,” explains Verda Blythe, director of the Grainger Center. By the 1990s, a new supply chain management model had broken down the silo walls, she says, enabling customer-focused information to be shared among the distinct functional areas of companies to meet customer demand. In recent years, businesses using supply chain management gradually have shed the linear model of pushing raw materials and labor into one end of the chain in order to produce finished products at the other end. Imagine three overlapping circles representing supply, demand, and products/services. These three domains are interconnected through demand-driven networks encompassing customers, employees, and suppliers. The networks share real-time information about everything from customer orders, to parts and labor, to inventory levels and distribution channels, to customer requests for product improvements and innovation. In short, these networks efficiently respond to customer demand signals, whether they relate to producing existing products or innovating new ones. “Supply chain management enables us to negotiate the best pricing in the industry,” says Evan Smestad, MBA ’04, strategic procurement manager at Hewlett-Packard. “You’re not following the market, you’re setting the market. And that gives you a greater advantage over your competitors.”

Value chains: focusing on the end customer These days, companies are adopting the “value chain” concept, coined by competitive strategy expert Michael Porter, as part of their overall supply chain management operations and strategy. In essence, this means building value into every step of planning, sourcing, making, and delivering products and services.

Nevin cites Hewlett-Packard as an excellent example of the value chain in action, noting that HP redesigned its products and processes to reduce costs and add value. “They’ve condensed all of their sourcing, reduced the number of motors and other parts in their printers, and redesigned them so that there is a base unit module that can be further assembled and customized in distribution centers around the world,” Nevin explains. “They started at the design stage, and established outright how products would be sourced, produced, assembled, and distributed.” Lean thinking and process improvement also play key roles in the value chain, notes Scott Converse, director of technology programs in the business school’s Executive Education unit, and program director of its supply chain management certificate series. “At every step, you identify whether it involves an activity that the customer would be willing to pay for,” says Converse. “So you’re identifying re-work, excess movement of goods and services, excess transportation, idle time and wait time, and reducing those types of things to add value to the product or service.” Focusing on customer needs and feedback is integral to all successful value chains. “It is the supply-demand balance being achieved up and down the chain, from the consumer back to the source, and value is created at every transaction along the way,” says Kevin O’Marah, group vice president, supply chain research at AMR Research, who serves on the Executive Advisory Board of the Grainger Center. “So, when you buy a Happy Meal from McDonald’s, the value provided in reverse is the customer knowledge provided to McDonald’s from its Happy Meal data—for example, that drinks should be smaller, or that different plastic toys should be included. Value is created in the transaction, and that always is a two-way street.” At Cisco, Inc., Customer Value Teams (CVTs) reflect an intense customer focus. “CVTs are made up of dedicated value chain experts focused exclusively on proactively connecting Cisco value chain capabilities with our largest customers and partners,” says Karl Braitberg, vice president of demand management,

planning, and customer operations. Braitberg serves on the Grainger Center’s Executive Advisory Board. “Each team is focused on delivering personalized, high-touch, customer value chain solutions,” he says. “These teams are accountable for driving customerspecific metrics throughout the value chain.”

Trends and challenges Increasingly, businesses and organizations are discovering the critical role that supply chain management plays in responding to new challenges, which are shaping new trends in the field.

Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management The Wisconsin School of Business has one of the only endowed, university-based centers specializing in supply chain management in the United States—the Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management. The center supports an MBA career specialization in supply chain management, an undergraduate specialization, and assists faculty research in the field. Its MBA offering has earned particular acclaim in various publications including U.S. News & World Report, Gartner/AMR Research, and Supply Chain Management Review. Average starting salaries of its graduates are consistently the highest among peer schools, ranging from $80,000 to $110,000. The center is known for close ties to industry. Its Executive Advisory Board comprises senior executives from firms recognized for excellence in supply chain management. Verda Blythe, MS ’02, the director of the Grainger Center, is an alumna of the program. According to Blythe, the center’s reputation and the growing importance of supply chain management have increased the demand for supply chain management education and talent. Blythe says, “I feel confident telling prospective students that if they want to become a leader in world-class supply chain management, the Grainger Center is the place to start.” To learn more about the Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management and careers in supply chain management, visit


UPDATE Spring/Summer 2010

“Company after company used supply chain management to take huge costs out of the system when the recession hit,” says Nevin. “HarleyDavidson, for example, closed its distribution center and outsourced it. It also placed its transportation operations with third parties.” Supply chain management has made companies more resilient in tough times. Quraish Baldiwala, MBA ‘01, is the commercial director of strategic markets for Abbott Nutrition, a Chicago-based division of Abbott Laboratories. He lists several industry trends that developed over the past two decades: “Globalization, focus on emerging markets, and the decoupling of the supply chain into a web of autonomous entities designed to work together.” Other aspects of important trends he cites are growing efforts by companies to offset higher costs in developed countries, take advantage of a growing middle class overseas, and developments in transportation and information systems that have allowed remote supply chains to function. “Through the economic crisis, not only have we been able to ride it out, but supply chain management has enabled us to continue our cost-saving initiatives to provide top-line dollars to invest in other areas, like R&D,” says Smestad. “In fact, as we’ve grown over the last five years, it has tripled that ability, if not more.” Other supply chain trends have stemmed from the challenges of political, economic, or other vulnerabilities in overseas markets. “In the last few years, with escalating global risks, the need to have effective risk-mitigation programs is paramount,” says Braitberg. “A crisis in a distant region can now spread very quickly across the world economy, creating tremendous turbulence.” In response, companies have diversified their supply bases and located them throughout the world, rather than basing them in one location, to spread risk. “In order to reduce fuel costs or product safetyrelated risk stemming from tainted or unsafe products, some U.S. companies have moved operations, suppliers, or other parts of their supply chains from China to Mexico,” comments Blythe. Jennifer Schultz, MBA ’08, is in the Supply Chain Leadership Development Program at Raytheon Co. She points to another growing trend: supply chain

“A crisis in a distant region can now spread very quickly across the world economy, creating tremendous turbulence.”

optimization. Essentially, supply chain optimization strives to maximize commodity technology, while at the same time reducing the number of suppliers for a commodity, giving highest priority to the highestperforming suppliers. “Supply chain optimization is extremely important, especially when it comes to global sourcing and logistics,” says Schultz. “Who are my key strategic suppliers, and what do they bring to the table? When we concentrate on those issues, we’re going to enhance efficiency in the supply chain.”

Expanding into non-traditional areas Supply chain management has grown in scope and influence largely within the realms of manufacturing and related sectors. Increasingly, there are additional areas where supply chain management is having an impact, providing solutions, and driving profits— especially in new markets. Take IBM, which has successfully applied supply chain management principles and practices to provide solutions in a host of non-traditional areas beyond manufacturing. “For IBM, our focus is on the trend of ‘smart’ supply chains in support of ‘smarter planet’ solutions, which are rooted in the basic elements of ‘Instrumented,’ ‘Interconnected,’ and ‘Intelligent,’” says Steve Loehr, vice president of operations and strategy, value services. Loehr is another supply chain management expert who serves on the Grainger Center’s Executive Advisory Board. He cites IBM’s consulting work for the Swedish National Road Association in Stockholm and other cities around the world to reduce road congestion and vehicle emissions. “Think of cars on roads like one big distribution network within a supply chain, or multiple components moving along various assembly lines inside a factory,” says Loehr. “By equipping roadways with instrumentation to both track and charge for usage, interconnecting the system to manage the overall flow, and then applying analytics/intelligence to both provide real-time feedback on usage as well

as insights on variability of demand throughout the day, week, or month, overall supply and demand can be managed better. Congestion can be controlled and better planning can be developed for roadways and public transportation usage.” Not only can these smart solutions enhance the world around us, but they’re also generating considerable profits for IBM. In fact, supply chain management in non-traditional areas like business consulting has helped Big Blue transition from a manufacturing-based company into a knowledge-based enterprise. “When I started at IBM years ago, the majority of our profits came from hardware,” says Loehr. In contrast, he notes that hardware accounted for 15 percent of IBM’s gross revenues for the first quarter of 2010, whereas consulting and services generated about 60 percent. The IBM roadway example points to other non-traditional fields where supply chain management will likely have a significant impact: social and environmental responsibility. “Supply chain management is going to be responsible for managing initiatives related to broader social issues,” says Nevin. IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Timberland Co., Starbucks, and many other companies are incorporating the goals of sustainability and ethical labor practices into their supply chain management strategies and practices, demonstrating that it is possible to “do the right thing” while delivering superior returns to shareholders. “Whether you’re scoring suppliers based on their carbon footprints or energy usage, or reducing waste in your own operations, supply chain management makes it happen,” comments Converse.

UPDATE Spring/Summer 2010


Helping Firms Hone Their SCM Expertise Another non-traditional sector where supply chain management can make a significant impact is the U.S. health care system. Many companies have built recycling into different parts of their supply chains. For example, Nike reprocesses discarded athletic shoes to create rubber for soccer fields, foam for playground surfaces, and fabric for padding under basketball floors. Another non-traditional sector where supply chain management can make a significant impact is the U.S. health care system. “In health care, there is a lot of waste in inventory and sourcing,” says Blythe. “Typically, hospitals and health care providers don’t buy directly from manufacturers—they buy from distributors. So this results in multiple layers of inventory.” Blythe suggests that a first step might entail improving electronic communications between hospitals and suppliers at the front end of the supply chain, thereby facilitating more direct and efficient demand signals that will reduce response times and inventories. Sourcing and inventory management would be other significant areas ripe for improvement via supply chain management. O’Marah agrees. “Patients don’t communicate their demand information directly back into the system— they communicate their needs back through the insurance industry, which distorts the demand signal,” he explains. “The insurance industry collects all that demand data but distorts the demand signal with rules about what it will and will not pay for.” O’Marah envisions a solution involving demanddriven networks of retail health care suppliers that would provide routine services, like physicals, directly to consumers who would pay out of pocket. But, he says, higher-risk procedures, like surgeries, would remain covered by insurance companies.

Even when companies recognize the importance of supply chain management, their efforts to pursue SCM improvement or technology solutions can fall short. To help translate strategy into successful practice, the business school’s Executive Education unit offers one of the nation’s broadest offerings of courses in supply chain, purchasing, and transportation/logistics. A sampling includes: ►►

S upply Chain Leadership focuses on how to identify and minimize uncertainty in supply chains to improve customer satisfaction and lower costs.


S trategic Global Sourcing provides insight on the best mix of domestic, near-shore, and far-shore sourcing, and practical advice on how to execute the mix effectively.

Whether supply chain management can reform America’s intractable problems with health care remains to be seen. But one thing is certain: supply chain management is not a flashy fad that will fade away. It already has transformed companies around the world, providing a strategic platform for meeting customer demand through value-rich processes. By offering solutions to environmental and other problems, it may even make the world a better place. Bill Shepard is a Madison-area freelance writer.

Navigating Rough Waters The upside of learning to invest in a down market By Lari Fanlund “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” Students in the Applied Security Analysis Program (ASAP) at the Wisconsin School of Business may not have that famous quote by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche emblazoned on their walls, but perhaps they should.

Over the 40-year life of the program, almost 500 students have managed real money in real portfolios—currently equity and fixed-income portfolios that total more than $62 million. The students have felt firsthand what it’s like to invest in up markets and down markets, with a few classes experiencing markets that went beyond bearish to brutal.

Three of those periods stand out: the stock market crash of October 1987; the days following the 9/11 attacks in 2001 when the U.S. economy went into free fall; and most recently, autumn 2008, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1,874 points during one white-knuckle week. “I think back to the fall of 1987,” recalls John Wakeman, a graduate of the class of 1988 who is now a portfolio manager at T.

However, it was also clear that it was a new experience for most market participants. We made several calls during the day, and then called international alumni after the market close. The reactions included confusion, panic, composure, and a wide range of strategies. We looked around and concluded we were on our own!” Brian Hellmer is the director of the Hawk Center for Applied Security Analysis, which offers ASAP as an MBA specialization within the full-time Wisconsin MBA. He just completed his first year with the center after a 20-year career as an analyst and portfolio manager. He, too, was a student in the program during the October 1987 stock market crash.

see there was definitely an opportunity for people like me to take advantage of shortterm irrationality and emotion in the markets. I was eager to learn more about how to do that, and ASAP provided a great learning platform.” Despite the challenges, the investment teams that year were able to implement strategies and stick to the investing fundamentals they had learned—which allowed them to hold on to a respectable portion of their portfolios. That same pragmatic approach was taken by the class of 2002, which managed to put together an investment strategy that held up in one of the worst environments in the program’s history. The 15 students in the program scrambled to put together an investment strategy able to withstand a sagging economy and markets made volatile by 9/11, the war in Afghanistan, and a rash of corporate accounting scandals and bankruptcies. Despite the volume of challenges, both equity and fixed-income portfolios of the Class of 2002 outperformed their respective benchmarks.

And then there was the Class of 2009. The prior fall, second-year students in the program were confronted not only with the collapse of large financial institutions, but with the bailout of bank after bank by the U.S. government and downturns in stock markets around the world. “Throughout the summer of 2008 I felt that we had not yet seen the worst of the bear market,” recalls Brad Angermeier, a fixed income analyst at Ameriprise in Minneapolis. “It began to escalate late in the summer as rumors swirled surrounding the insolvency of various large financial institutions, and the regulators temporarily banned short-selling in various financial names. I suppose the truly historic nature of the crisis didn’t really hit home until late September, when the makeup of our financial sector completely changed.” Chris Carter is now an equity analyst at Nakoma Capital in Madison. He has a precise memory of the free fall. “On the day we gained approval to manage the portfolios from the board, I remember the market sold off 2%. It was clear we were entering or had entered a bear market. The failures of Lehman and AIG helped make it a historic economic collapse. I remember watching the vote for the first TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) proposal on CNBC. With each ‘no’ vote tallied, the market was selling off and when the TARP proposal was rejected it felt as though we were on the precipice of economic disaster. At that time it sunk in that not only were markets in panic mode, but so too was the leadership in charge of addressing the problems.” Steve Cheuk, a high-yield bond analyst at Ameriprise in Minneapolis, recalls, “We came into the year already having had a volatile summer of ’08. Then came September, and it kept getting worse. There were plenty of days where all we saw were red numbers (indicating stocks that were

“The ability to put one’s emotions aside and take action when markets are being irrational is hard, and can only be learned during down periods.” down) and on some level it was numbing, day after day. I can remember meetings where we’d have a few ‘green’ names and as the meeting would progress, those would go down to zero. It always seemed that things went bad in the last hour of the trading day, which was when our meetings were held, so even on the few days that weren’t so bad, we would gear up for the last-hour nosedive.” Still, their hard work and focus paid off, as the ASAP Class of 2009 produced excellent results by focusing on high-quality companies that held up well as the economy slowed down. Both equity teams were able to solidly outperform their benchmarks during their time in charge of the portfolios. The fixed-income team, which took over the portfolio during the tumultuous summer of 2008, was forced to immediately evaluate the corporate bond holdings and made some key decisions as to how to improve the situation. Despite a difficult start, the portfolio strongly outperformed during the last three months of the academic year and finished the year overall in line with the benchmark. Even with the intense pressure they were under, program graduates say they recognized at the time that their challenges were not unique, that economic impacts were having devastating effects on companies, whole industries, and individuals. Students who graduated this May had an easier time of it, as the market made a gradual recovery on their watch. They certainly appeared to be luckier than their classmates who graduated a year earlier. Or were they? Some say the need to confront a tough economy while in the program was invaluable experience. “Starting out during tough times is often the best situation,” says Nussbaum. In the 22 years he has spent in the investment field since his graduation, his appreciation

of the rapid learning curve provided by the program has grown. “Honestly, you can’t beat living through events when it comes to experience,” he says. “Everyone will be tested throughout their careers. How the students learn to react to adversity will often mean the difference between success and failure.“ Wakeman agrees: “The ability to put one’s emotions aside and take action when markets are being irrational is hard, and can only be learned during down periods.” Cheuk believes being in the program during the 2008 downturn has given him “invaluable experience in how to handle and react to difficult situations.” Hellmer, the Hawk Center’s director, says he called upon what he learned from being in the program during the bear market of 1987 throughout his investment career: “It taught me the value of having a clear process and understanding why you own each stock in the portfolio,” he says. “During subsequent huge drops in the market—like the months following the 9/11 attacks—I was able to recognize that unless our outlook for a company had changed dramatically, the fear-based selling we were seeing was unlikely to be permanent.” There might be another benefit to tough times, as graduates of the “years of hard knocks” may form stronger ties. “I believe almost all of our ASAP classes develop very strong connections given all the time and effort they dedicate to managing the portfolio and working together,” Hellmer says. “However, classes forced to deal with extreme adversity probably wind up with the closest bonds.” Professor Mark Ready, academic director of ASAP, says the program provides students with a template that produces analysts and money managers who have the skills needed to achieve success—in all kinds of markets. “Our program focuses on fundamentals of

investing that have proven to add value over the long run,” he says. “Regardless of what the market may be doing during the students’ time here, they develop the skills needed to succeed in this highly competitive industry.” So, what’s the bottom line? Does going through down times have an upside? Wakeman has no doubts: “I think history is clear,” he says. “In good times everyone thinks they are a stock-picking genius. It is during the downturns that true great investors come to the front.” Lari Fanlund is the editor of UPDATE.

How Entrepreneurs Bring Their Ideas to Market (It may not be how you think)

By Lari Fanlund Entrepreneurs foster innovation and help stimulate much-needed economic growth. Despite the importance of entrepreneurship, the field is less understood than most fields of management. Jon Eckhardt, an associate professor in the Department of Management and Human Resources, is trying to change that through his award-winning research. To gather qualitative information, Eckhardt has conducted interviews with a wide range of nationally prominent entrepreneurs, including Palm Computing founder Jeff Hawkins. For quantitative information, he and his collaborators have gleaned data from several thousand IPO (initial public offering) documents they have collected.



UPDATE Spring/Summer 2010

One of the most intriguing questions his voluminous research has explored: “How do novel ideas become incorporated in products and services?” He’s found some surprising answers. “Historically, people have studied entrepreneurship from the perspective of the entrepreneur,” he says. “My work starts from the perspective of ideas, how they become commercialized in a variety of ways.” We may think that entrepreneurs enter a market because they believe they have a product or service that will make them money. But when Eckhardt began examining that notion a few years ago in terms of entrepreneurs offering new open-source software, he found something else. In many cases, the process is much more accidental, and not always directly tied to expectations of profits. He and research partners Mason Carpenter, a professor in the management department, and graduate student Michael Ciuchta, with whom Eckhardt won the 2006 Irene M. McCarthy Award for best paper on a high-tech topic, made some unexpected discoveries. “It looks like people become entrepreneurs based on really local information they receive about the validity of an idea,” Eckhardt says. “They don’t tend to respond as much as one would think to doing the MBA-type financial analysis that we teach in business schools. Instead, it appears that they select into entrepreneurship based on evidence that other people enjoy using their technology.” To put the concept in the simplest terms, Eckhardt says: consider a potluck. “You might have somebody who likes to bake pies. If they take their pie to a potluck and see it’s the first to disappear, they might say, ‘Look, I’ve got something here’ and become an entrepreneur based on that. They could go to a grocery store and see people selling

frozen pies or read in a newspaper about someone getting rich by selling them. They might do research to try to figure out how much revenue people earn selling frozen pies. But what we’re finding is that the entrepreneurial urge is most likely to be sparked by the potluck feedback.” Another surprising finding is that having competitors who give their product away can be a good thing for commercially minded entrepreneurs. “If I’m an entrepreneur and I’m in a market where somebody’s giving away a competing product for free, my revenue is higher than if I’m in a market where people aren’t giving things away,” he says. While counterintuitive, it makes sense if one considers why people give away things for free. Consider the case of computer software, which often is available in both free and for-pay versions. “Those folks that are doing stuff for free are doing a lot,” Eckhardt says. ”They’re teaching consumers about the concept, and consumers may very well begin by trying the free version. They are also providing information to commercial producers regarding what is technically feasible, as well as the specific nature of consumer demand. However, the free folks are often in it for a different gain—a problem they wanted to solve, or maybe they just liked writing that particular software program. In most cases, they aren’t thinking about trying to meet the needs of the market, or of society, or building a spreadsheet that everybody will find useful. So commercial entrepreneurs can build on that to find a solution that people are willing to pay for, adding features to develop a completely functional product people will want.” Eckhardt says that those interested in commercializing an idea can work more directly with those who are not. “A commercially minded entrepreneur can partner with a scientist or somebody who just loves a particular technology,” he explains. “Sometimes when people jump into entrepreneurship they assume that everyone they will work with will have the same kind of goals and desires, that they will be competitors as well as partners. But many

people out there are generating really new, valuable, and interesting things who may not be interested in commercializing or making any kind of profit from them personally.” By understanding people’s different motivations, Eckhardt says, entrepreneurs can up their odds of launching a successful undertaking. Eckhardt is continuing to explore aspects of the entrepreneurial process, aiming to uncover information of value to scholars, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and society. He continues to look into how non-profit innovation informs commercial entrepreneurship. Early in his career, Eckhardt thought of becoming an entrepreneur himself. Instead, he says, he became “fascinated by the academic questions around entrepreneurship.” How ideas are incorporated into markets continues to intrigue him. “Entrepreneurship is a relatively young field in management that is rapidly evolving and becoming more rigorous,” he says. “It’s an exciting field to be exploring.” Lari Fanlund is the editor of UPDATE.

o many alumni and friends contribute in different ways to the Wisconsin School of Business. One of the most valuable contributions alumni can make in the current economic environment is to connect our students with potential job opportunities. Many companies have cut back on their traditional on-campus recruitment efforts, making a powerful alumni network even more important. This year, alumni and friends of the business school stepped up in a big way to help our students. In addition to posting current available positions, alumni advised students directly and recommended them to people in their personal networks. This type of one- or two-off connection had a significant impact on the number of students who secured a position by graduation. It is one reason that hiring of our graduates in many cases exceeded those of our peer schools. Peter O’Leary, a second-year MBA student in the Nicholas Center for Corporate Finance, is an example of a student who proactively reached out to alumni for advice and guidance in his job search with outstanding results. Earlier this year, Peter contacted Jim Neupert, an alumnus who recently retired from Boston Scientific and who currently serves on the advisory board for the business school’s Center for Brand and Product Management. Jim met with Peter to learn more about his past experience and career goals. Jim then connected Peter with fellow Brand and Product Management board member, Colleen Goggins, worldwide chairman for the Consumer and Personal Care Group at Johnson & Johnson. Colleen, in turn, was able to connect Peter with a hiring manager at Johnson & Johnson’s corporate office in London. After meeting with several members of the team in London, Peter was offered and accepted a position in corporate finance with Johnson & Johnson. What a tremendous example of how our alumni network can affect the lives of students and contribute to the continued strength of our business school. There are many ways you can help. If you would be interested in giving career advice to students, sharing a position opening, or getting involved in other ways, please go online to and see which opportunity best fits your interests. We welcome your involvement. And so will our students.

Both have been involved in creating and supporting its vision of offering the premier brand management MBA program in the country.
