Innovation Process

What online tools are the best practices for gathering innovation ideas from a large team (e.g., 4000+ member), assigning those ideas to SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) to determine if they should be implemented, and then implementing them? What is the best practice for designing a process that does not die under its own weight?

What business topics or issues are most challenging to you right now?

Jeremy Siegel's Economic and Financial Markets Update

Pardon me if this general speaking topic already has been suggested, but I suspect nearly everyone would love to hear Prof. Siegel provide a reasonably detailed, comprehensive economic and financial markets update along with a review of whatever current topic interests him the most. His regular finance class lectures were a high point of our two years at Wharton. We want Jeremy!

Business in Africa

I have the general sense that business is booming in Africa. It's a big continent with lots of people. We have some Africa experts at Wharton. Can they give a master class on what's happening in Africa?

Implementing Innovation

Figuring out what to do is easy. Doing it is hard. Is there some science that can be brought to bear on implementing innovation. What are best practices? What do we know about what works and doesn't?

What societal challenges could be improved by the Wharton alumni network?

Wharton on Healthcare

Healthcare costs are pretty much going to bankrupt the U.S. economy if they stay on their current trajectory. Wharton alumni could take a non-partisan, business-oriented approach to this challenge. At least it would be interesting to get the discussion going among alumni and to have some of our experts on health economics weigh in with the relevant facts.
