IMTA 2008 June 17, 2008Posted by Miha Skerlavaj in Uncategorized.
These days I am attending International Management Teachers Academy @ Bled, Slovenia, organized by Central and East European Association for Management (CEEMAN). It is a great 2-week long event, which reminds me of a crash-course MBA. Top-notch professors J.B. Kassarjian (IMD, Switzerland & Babson College, USA), Joe Pons (AXIOMA Marketing Consultants, previously IESE Barcelona, Spain), Arshan Ahmad (Concordia University, Canada) and Krzystof Obloj (Warswaw University and Kozminsky Business school, Poland) are doing their best to keep busy all 42 participants from 15 countries from dawn till dusk. And what a good job they are doing! 🙂
Seriously speaking (well, writing), workshops such as this are a great motivational tool and self-reflection opportunity. They make you think about your work, yourself, and all the stakeholders that one deals with in a role of professor (students, businesses, faculty,…). Teaching, researching, consulting, and administrative task … they all overlap. One thing is for sure, we are never bored and we always strive for growth and development (of our own and those that we impact). In addition, there has been a lot of work on using case studies to develop skills and attitudes, lots of hands-on experiences, energy and emotions , metaphors and stories involved in the learning process. And lots of networking opportunities with new, interesting people from all around the (eastern) part of the world. So far, I can only use superlatives!

I guess I don’t have to specially emphasize that time is practically the only limited resource we have. How to overcome excessive workload with study and work obligations? How to prioritize? How to manage our time? In cooperation with Center for student and career services I’m holding a workshop for students of Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana where I’ll present some principles and tools for time management such as time spending analysis, work scheduling, important/urgent matrix, prioritizing, ‘time jar’, critical success factors etc. More information…

And here are few photos of Saturday’s LA sightseeing before leaving for the long way back home. Pay attention to the view from the hotel: illuminated Staples sport centre, while our youngster hockey star Anže Kopitar is deciding the game LA Kings versus Dallas Stars6-5. And of course, Hollywood vista and me (my foot) together with Halle Berry. Last but not least, not to miss, the sunset at the Pacific ocean.
