TRANSFORMING ASPIRING MANAGERS INTO INSPIRING LEADERS.


The role of leaders has changed.

Effective leadership is no longer simply about managing individual disciplines, from HR to marketing to finance. It’s about bringing them together. You must nurture integration, collaboration and change to improve individual and team performance. This is the inspiration for our Executive Masters in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (EMLSI).

We live and work in a new era of interconnected, international business, defined by new products and new technologies that demand new business models and strategies for profit generation and value creation. It means that, today, leaders need to think and work globally. Innovation and integration are now leadership imperatives which led us to ask business, government and academia the question: What kind of development do the leaders of tomorrow actually want and need?

EMLSI – Designed by leaders, for leaders Our 12 month EMLSI program has been created – from the ground up – for aspiring leaders from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors across the Asia Pacific. All elements of our technology enabled curriculum, Capstone Consulting project and International Immersion module have been inspired by real-world needs of managers who are looking to step up and add tangible value in a leadership role.

Managing Uncertainty Through Scenario Planning

Leading from Strategy to Operations

Rethinking Strategic Value of Markets and Consumers

Reacting to organisational environments that evolve continuously requires managers to work with constant change and uncertainty. One avenue of responding to the complexity of such environments is to adopt a scenario planning approach as part of strategy building. Organisational strategy can be better constructed and executed by reflecting on multi-disciplinary input that result in new trends, driving forces and macro events. This module enables managers to assess externalities, develop, apply and evaluate scenarios to the organisation’s strategic context.

This module covers the design and implementation of strategy, both at the organisation and at the business unit levels. It also presents the tools and methodologies for industry and competition analysis - in new, mature and emerging markets - as well as techniques to tap uncontested markets to deliver fast growth and superior profitability. Emphasis is placed on the importance of execution-centred strategic planning and the management of business processes, as well as on change management and overcoming the challenges of strategy implementation.

When business, societal and environmental realities evolve, the strategic value creation, communication and dissemination process also undergoes change. This module critically assesses these new realities in the context of a virtualised and globalised business world and evaluates its impacts on markets and consumers. The module will provide an analytical framework around which business problems can be tackled and strategic decisions made to better communicate and disseminate processes while enhancing strategic value.
