For 9.5.17

We have discussed how the best way to prepare an essay is to practice, and we have eight weeks to do so: for next week, chose one of the two options below, outline what is going on, then write a few sentences explaining what you’ve learned: we are still exploring, outlining is the foundation for essay writing, so don’t worry now about what it will look like: do worry about researching your topic. Please put a page or two on Dropbox by Sunday evening


  1. Follow your topic: Outline and discuss one or more articles on your chosen topic
  2. Or, if you don’t want to choose your own topic, outline the first pages of “Pipelines, Platforms, and the New Rules of Strategy” (on our Dropbox)
