They were led by outstanding specialists from renowned research centers – Gabriela Ciocarlie from Stanford Research Institute, Mireia Las Heras from IESE Business School, Mike Rosenberg from IESE Business School, Silvia King from IESE Business School and Radosław Koszewski from IESE Business School in Poland. The meetings were held in the format of four two-day workshops, arranged in thematic blocks covering the financial area, energy area, insurance area and the area of human resources management in the organization. The work was based on the case study method carried out in accordance with the standards in force at Harvard Business School and IESE Business School, as well as the unique in Poland combination of scientists’ research workshop and the knowledge and experience of practitioners participating in the project, thanks to which the obtained results were based on practical knowledge available only people dealing with management in selected thematic areas, while maintaining academic rigor.
