Course Rules


The following are our "class rules".

Overall, all activity on the altMBA platform should be geared towards helping others learn.


Leading a book discussion

The purpose of book discussions is to interact over the ideas the author presents and create materials for our learning library.  As a discussion leader, you will lead us through that process.  Please review the checklist below to be sure you’ll meet our standards.


Book Discussion Checklist

If you have any questions, please let me know!



Joining a group

If there is one thing we want you to leave this program with, its the motivation and knowledge to put your "BIG Idea" into action.

When you registered, you were asked to join one of the following groups/areas that you feel MOST confident in:

As a member of one of these groups, you will be asked to share your experience and know-how to other people in the program who need help developing their "BIG Ideas". At any point, you can submit your "BIG idea" to the leader of one or each of these groups to get some consultative assistance and constructive feedback.

The "leader" will then surface one "BIG Idea" at a time for discussion. As soon as the "BIG Idea" has been discussed, then the leader will surface a new idea.

At the end of the discussion, the owner of the "BIG Idea" will consolidate the feedback from the group into one summary (Onlinge Blog post, Slideshare, Google Doc, etc) so that any other member of the entire program can understand the key-takeaways.

*We are looking for people to "lead" each of these groups. You don't have to be the most knowledgeable about this topic to lead this group, just the most organized :) You responsibilities will pretty light - just making sure there is at least one new "BIG Idea" every week is being surfaced for discussion, and making sure that owner's of the "BIG Ideas" Are posting summaries after discussion on their ideas close.
