General Management for Executives

Integrated corporate management

    Concept

    Executives have to be effective. They are measured by the results they achieve. It’s not what is done that counts, but the results from this and what is achieved in the next few years. Objective-Achieving objectives is everything. But what objectives?

    Integrated management requires you to be oriented towards long-term results that go far beyond just considering profit and rate of return. Only if you understand the whole, can you work with a open mindset, and skillfully maneuver through the complex reality of everyday business. Only by achieving many objectives at the same time, can you be highly effective. Expertise in general management, therefore, is a must for any success-oriented executive.

    Company Audit

    How is my company doing? Are we equipped for the future? Where can we get more out of our options, where can we better use our opportunities? Where do we need to take action to safeguard our business and to exploit new growth and profit potential? You will learn to ask the right questions and to use the answers as best possible solutions.
