The forward challenge for business leaders is to address a context of exponential change, heightened uncertainty, increased complexity and new models of work in the digital age. Authentic, values-based leadership connects employees to purpose at all levels to maximise engagement and performance.
You will use advanced, evidence-based tools to analyse and evaluate your leadership practice. Identify and action new ways of leading forward to increase your personal and organisational impact as a leader for the future economy.
In an environment where technology and the digital landscape is driving rapid change, competitive advantage is transient and short-lived. Business leaders need to embed strategic agility to turn threat into opportunity and deliver sustainable business growth, whether in home markets, or internationally.
You will be equipped with cutting-edge strategic thinking tools, and will identify the dynamic organisational capabilities that form the bedrock of strategic agility and growth in fast-moving markets.
Leaders make decisions that profoundly influence and shape the future of the organisation. Mining the full potential of big data and analytics to turn into strategic insight, as well as leveraging the world of behavioural science to fully understand the human factors at work, will lead to higher quality decision-making.
You will sharpen your strategic and financial decision-making, using critical sound reasoning, critical thinking and rigorous analysis. You will turn information into actioned knowledge, tracking through to advanced performance.
Being a digital business is about organisational change at every level. It is not one project but a collection of all the strands that together will ‘instil’ digital into your organisation at every point; from the customer interface to digitising processes, to the supply chain and generating new sources of value for the business.
You will identify the most current digital questions/strands for your business - how, when and where they will impact, and the nature of the response required.
The future of work will be driven by learning and agility. Increasing collaboration and connectivity will wire your organisation to allow the easy flow of ideas and unlock pathways to quickly mobilise new initiatives.
You will strengthen your capability to build, lead and shape organisational culture, and will create behaviours and norms that enable innovation and enhance organisational agility.
You’ve got the knowledge, the tools, now is the time to put your new learning into practice. As well as working on you as a leader, at the core of the programme will be your work with faculty and colleagues to refine, develop and deliver responses to your strategic challenge.
Progression of initiatives will be driven by the learning from workshop themes continually revisited in an applied context, your peer learning group engagement, and your personal leadership growth, to create impact within your business.
This final event will bring together the strands of innovation, productivity, digital, resilience and leadership essential for sustainable growth. You will share the focus of your strategic challenges and identify the templates for future success, which you have built.
