Managing Around the World: Roundtables for Experienced Managers is a one-week intensive workshop to look deeply and critically into the way you frame and tackle current managerial challenges, drawing on the insights of experienced peers from all over the world, and using advanced consulting methods to devise effective solutions. You will also visit businesses in the city and learn how managers from other sectors and cultures approach the conundrums that are inherent to managerial responsibility.
As well as solutions to your own managerial challenges, you will learn techniques and receive materials that are immediately useable back in your workplace.
This workshop is the basis for proven organisation, management and leadership development interventions, and from 2018 onwards we offer a special track for OD and learning professionals to hone, share and perhaps radically redefine your practice. Please ask for details of the facilitator track.
Managing Around the World is designed to explore how things get done in a cross-cultural world, and how to work more effectively. Participants and faculty collaborate in a structured process of analysis, representation, and friendly consulting.
The programme is in 3 parts: the purpose and nature of managerial work; field visits to local companies; and application to your own circumstances. The contribution of each individual is the key, with participants from Executive MBA programmes at leading international business schools from around the world. Participants will also include independent managers from international and local companies keen to use this learning opportunity at one of the world’s best executive education instututions.
In order to get the most from the Roundtable process, you need to have a managerial presence in organisational life, so you can test and develop experience with colleagues in senior management roles from different parts of the world.
The one week module features:
- World-class faculty including Jonathan Gosling, Ian Sutherland and others
- Thought-provoking debate and focused enquiry into your own organisation
- Unique networking opportunities for each participant
- Advanced skills in observation analysis and interpretation.
- Friendly consultation and feedback on your own managerial practice.
