  3. 3. Background <ul><li>The Harvard Kennedy School degree course STM-480 &quot; Leadership for a Networked World&quot;  is taught by Professor Jerry Mechling and is for degree students seeking to create innovation and progress in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. The course is designed to improve analysis and implementation for many of the dramatic information-related changes now underway around the globe. We focus primarily on leadership and management, not on technology; the course requires no technical background and you'll learn what you need as we go. LNW is about how information technologies --  when combined with institutional change and effective leadership --  can impact the productivity, equity, and legitimacy of public services and governance. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Background <ul><li>Learning in LNW also benefits from cases, readings, written assignments, supplemental technology and review sessions, and interactions with occasional classroom guests (e.g., government Chief Information Officers, leaders of various innovation initiatives, et. al.). </li></ul><ul><li>I am an invited practitioner for the past 3 years. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>See next slide. </li></ul></ul>
