Description

Description

As an executive, you have an answer to every challenge. Your experience helps you to recognize how things are related, to see opportunity and sense where there is danger. With increasing experience, your ability to know what’s right and wrong for your company increases. Thanks to positive and negative experiences from the past, you are able to develop patterns of success and failure and to use them to your advantage.

 

On the other hand, many executives also know that nothing is effective forever. What was right yesterday can be wrong today. What was a recipe for success until now, can bear the seeds for failure. This is why it’s essential to always look at your own experiences in the light of best practices, to be willing to learn something new and to analyze whether this is suitable for use in your field of responsibility. 

 

This is the aim of our 3-part Senior Management Program. It offers you a valuable chance to review and develop your knowledge further in three subjects:

Part 1: Executive Leadership. 4 days

Part 2: Executive Management, Strategy, Safeguarding the Future. 4 days

Part 3: Financial Management. 4 days

The Leadership Tasks of Executive Management

If you are at the top, then you are responsible for result achievement. But always conscious of the fact that, ultimately, it’s your many employees who achieve these results. For this reason, you need to:

  • Set the right course for them
  • Agree with them about the objectives to be achieved
  • Create an atmosphere that motivates them
  • Guide them using the right managing tools.

And things don’t always function like they should function. Good management is an art. Achieving above-average results hardly comes about by itself. We will show you what aspects of a holistic, result-oriented management you need to control, and what differentiates good from bad management.

Leadership and Communication

If you need to implement new strategies and concepts, you will have to change the attitudes, behavior and habits of your employees and colleagues. We all know how difficult an undertaking this is. Successful change management begins with effective leadership, the appropriate leadership behavior and targeted communication.

  • How do you communicate strategies?
  • Fair conflict resolution
  • Successful change management – approaches and methods
  • Securing the future of your company and organizational excellence

Responsibilities of Executive Management

As an executive, you have power, the power of your position. In return, you assume responsibility for: The value of the companyn Creating a corporate culture based on successn Creating an atmosphere of mutual trustn Ensuring quality and performance-achievementn Ensuring strong customer-orientationn

Strategic Management, Setting a New Strategic Direction

Trust, understanding and treating others with respect characterizes today’s executive. But also his or her ability to make decisive decisions at the right moment and to act on them. We will show you which decisions are essential to strategic and responsible management, and in which situations it becomes necessary to move decisively and act quickly. This is the only way for a company to develop according to clear priorities, not according to the principle of chance.

  • Strategic management – trends and the latest developments
  • New strategic tools and approaches
  • Strategic guidelines and their consequences
  • Simulating a controlled corporate development
  • Making a few right decisions is often enough – we show you which and how
  • Digitalization and digital business models

Executive Fine-Tuning

This concerns finding the right balance between optimizing the present for short-term profit and value enhancement, and optimizing the future for a viable market positioning and sustainable management.

  • Achieving short-term results
  • Increasing profits, meeting profitability targets
  • Ensuring customer and employee satisfaction
  • Achieving a sustainable and secure future for your company
  • Being willing to make necessary investments in the future, and accepting changes that the digital world will bring

Structures and Processes as Rules governing Corporate Development

Working together in a company requires clear rules. Structures will help you ensure effectiveness and efficiency in the way you work.

 

  • Asking the right questions when changing structures
  • Creating a competitive advantage through an optimal organizational structure
  • The organization of tomorrow, ensuring agility

 

Managing Result-Achievement and Value

People at the highest management levels are responsible for financial result-achievement. What programs must be launched at regular intervals to optimally capitalize on the profit potential of your company? What must you do to achieve both short-term result improvement and long-term value enhancement?

Financial Management and Controlling

If you want to achieve ambitious financial objectives, then you’ll need knowledge of financial management.

 

  • Financial objectives within a holistic context
  • Modern key-performance indicators
  • Determining and using value drivers
  • Acquiring or selling companies or parts of companies
  • Recognizing profitable and unprofitable businesses and business activities

 

Management Tools for Controlling, Methods for Effective Management

If you delegate authority, trust people to deal with things locally and decentralize decision-making, then there’s always that nagging feeling of “Do I have everything under control?” If you want to have “intrapreneurs,” you have to loosen the reins a bit, while never giving up the ability to control things. For this, you need the tools of strategic and operative controlling. We will also show you which management methods you should use for your executive staff to:

  • Make decision-making transparent
  • Get things moving in your company
  • Maintain motivation in all departments
  • Support and shape entrepreneurial creativity
