This course addresses two principal questions: what makes a complex problem ripe for a strategic, multi-stakeholder, cross-sector solution; and how do leaders across sectors come together and get into alignment in spite of radically different backgrounds, goals, funding sources, and incentives? The course is taught using a blend of theory, case studies, and team exercise. The course is held at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago.
