Why join now?

We are facing a a world of uncertainties driven by structural forces including disruptive new technologies, accelerated climate change. Emerging dynamics of a fragmented society within and between states increase tensions with risk of conflicts as we are witnessing in Europe. Such a volatile world demands an ability by organisations adapt and learn to survive and thrive.

Leaders need to grasp the new environment in which we operate, revisit the strategic analysis, find a balance to exploit the known and explore the unknown to create sustainable results.

Companies need to build new capabilities and learn new ways to operate, where customer driven innovation and a fast-learning organisation is key to success.

This program builds the capabilities of leaders by providing the perspectives, insights, tools and mindsets necessary to drive transformation and gives access to an alumni network for continued learning.
