Scheller Lunchtime Live: Applying a DIY Paradigm in Any Organization Featuring Karthik Ramachandran

Scheller Lunchtime Live is a livestream series hosted by the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business featuring faculty, student, and alumni speakers discussing relevant topics for the tech-driven, digital age.

In this latest episode of Scheller Lunchtime Live, Associate Professor Karthik Ramachandran will discuss ways an organization can achieve a positive impact for its customers in the face of financial or other constraints by providing unfinished products or services that recipients can complete according to their own tastes and abilities. In essence, this means moving from an off-the-shelf mode of delivery to a partial DIY paradigm.

Just hit "Attend event" on the LinkedIn event and refresh the event page or the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business page on Friday, November 19 at 12:00 p.m. ET to access the session. Please note, you must have a LinkedIn profile in order to register and view the livestream.
