Case Study: Increasing the Bone Marrow Registry November 17, 2010
Jennifer Aaker  Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Lecture Series
One lesson taught by Stanford GSB Professor Jennifer Aaker is to include the opposite of every idea proposed in a brainstorming session.

This thinking led one former student to launch a social media campaign to register 20,000 South Asian bone marrow donors to find a match for a friend with leukemia. The result not only increased disease awareness and found a donor, but it also provided an excellent example of successful social networking, factoring in the strength of a specific goal, the power of reversing the rules, the necessity of creating a campaign that allows for no-fuss collaboration, and the need to tell a good story.
