As an executive, you constantly work on improving the competitive position of your company. But you can only move things in the right direction, and achieve something, within the framework of an integrative overall perspective. Executives with wide-ranging leadership responsibility find themselves confronted here with a special problem – having to watch over and manage several centers of activity at the same time. Achieving corporate objectives, healthy growth and a good prospect of future success; motivated employees, efficient processes, keeping costs low, positive financial results – none of these things happen by themselves. The conditions for achieving them must be right from the very start. This is the task of company executives and one than cannot be delegated to others. Our intense, multi-part program is meant as an application-oriented development program especially for middle and upper management. Participants should already have theoretical knowledge of general management and several years of management experience. The program combines the latest insights into the principles of modern strategic management, business development, financial management, with a leadership training, to update your knowledge and help to further optimize your management and leadership skills.
