4 Visions: CMYK

Four visions, Four professors address two issues – what could be considered the most important management subject, and whether the world is seeing a shift in its center of gravity.

As you probably know, CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, namely the four base ink colors.
In offset and digital printing the CMYK ink colors are applied to the paper in successive layers. By overlapping the four colors in varying concentrations a huge number of other colors can be created. As a result, the combined visual effects of the four CMYK colors produce what we commonly call full color printing.
I believe that the visions of the four professors featured in this video serve in much the same way as “base colors” for developing thought in the field of management. They basically address two issues – what could be considered the most important management subject, and whether the world is seeing a shift in its center of gravity. Prof. de l´Etraz disagrees with Dean Iniguez, and Prof. D´Souza disagrees with Dean Boehm. It seems that agreement is just not their thing… Check out what they have to say!!!

All four Professor along with Ioschka fischer, Malcom Gladwell… were present at The Korean World Knowledge Forum 2012

A Hawaiian Passion

The idea to shoot ¨A Hawaiian Passion¨ came about in Colombia while Entrepreneurship Professor, Paris de L´Etraz, Juan Jose Güemes, and myself were attending two different IE Business School events in Bogota. During a coffee break, Juan Jose happened to mention to me that Paris is passionate about paddle boarding, which he practices in the island of Kauai in Hawaii, where he has been vacationing for the past 15 years.

Obviously, upon visiting Kauai, I immediately loved the place, not to mention paddle boarding, which I had never even heard of before. Nothing stimulates me more than my ignorance.

In this video, Paris talks with mythical board shaper Dick Brewer, to whom he offers a present from the painter and surfer, Miguel Panadero. We also meet the amazing handicapped painter, Mo Hamilton. Apart from that, Paris quotes Paul Theroux and introduces a Hawaiian concept called ¨Holoholo,¨ a tool he thinks entrepreneurs can use for idea creation.

I hope you like it.
