This is a series of 12 short caselets profiling individual growth leaders that—used in conjunction with "Business Model Innovation: A Process Model" (UVA-BP-0538)—will help students evaluate business situations for innovation opportunities. The course module focuses on enhancing the ability of students to identify and implement organic growth initiatives in mature organizations. An instructor teaching note accompanies the caselets series that contains an overview of the theoretical model underlying the course, a suggested session outline for a 15-session course, a summary of the growth leader caselets, and an overview of each caselet's focus. The goal is to raise students' awareness of and capabilities in each of the six key areas that emerged in the growth study, which include: repertoire, learning mindset, entrepreneurial thinking, reframing, learning by doing, and leading with pragmatic idealism. The module design incorporates these six aspects of growth leadership into a model offering a series of steps that guide class discussions—each with accompanying materials and exercises.
