About the course

JOIN AND IMPROVE YOUR BUSINESS PERFORMANCE

Join a group of international managers from all over Europe, South Africa, Japan and other countries to engage with their current management issues. Share, reflect and take action to understand and improve your business performance.

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. Participants and faculty collaborate in a structured process of analysis, representation, and friendly consulting.

CONTENT

The 2018 Roundtable will offer a special track for OD and learning professionals on emerging insights in facilitation and development practice. The programme is in 3 parts:

  • The purpose and nature of managerial work
  • How leadership is accomplished in local companies
  • And application to your own circumstances.

The contribution of each participant is key to this event to be held at Copenhagen Business School with participants from leading international organisations and business schools. You will also visit businesses in Copenhagen with the opportunity to become a host and have the participants to visit your company. You also 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.

KEY BENEFITS

The one week module features:

  • World-class faculty including Jonathan Gosling, Henry Mintzberg (in person!), and others
  • Thought-provoking debate and focused enquiry into your own organisation
  • Unique networking opportunities for each participant
  • Advanced skills in observation, analysis, interpretation and consultation
  • Personal feedback and feedforward
  • Training in practical take-home techniques including ‘Coaching Ourselves’.

Who should attend

To get the most from the Roundtable process, you need to have a managerial role in organisational life so you can test and develop experience with colleagues from different parts of the world. The programme is not open to full-time students.
