HEC Paris, one of the world’s leading providers of Executive Education, launched the third consecutive Middle East - Africa (MEA) Mid-Management (M3) program for Alstom. This program aims to offer selected participants an access to the renowned faculty and learning methods of HEC Paris and reinforce the exceptional management skills of Alstom’s key talent in the region.

Tailored to the participants’ needs and designed in conjunction with Alstom, a total of 27 candidates from the Middle East - Africa, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region were chosen for the M3 Program, which will take place between Istanbul and Paris over the next 6 months. This program is meant to raise mid managers’ contribution to meet the strategic ambitions and to deliver the performance objectives of Alstom in the Middle East and Africa region. It is also intended to increase their capacities to act as change agents in their work environment and to build a network of colleagues and partners who share the same culture and experience.

The first module, ‘My world My company’ is designed to offer an opportunity to the participants to step back from day to day operations and learn about geopolitics, macroeconomics, business strategy, operational excellence, finance and value creation. Subject matter experts such as Charles Matar, Thierry Coudurier, Oliver Tabatoni will throw light on critical subjects such as Geopolitics of the Middle East & Africa; Strategic Approach & Successful Execution; and Finance & Value Creation respectively. Through the second module ‘Me and My leadership’, participants will be able to know themselves better. They would be able to discover and study their personality, profile preferences and behaviors. During the course, they will also learn how to effectively work in teams and to apprehend and analyze their communication style and relation to others.

Professor Patrick Delamaire will talk about Leading, Working and Contributing in Complex Organizations while Christian Monjou will reflect his insights on Strategy and Leadership, an analogy with Versailles’s Petit Trianon. Veronique Nguyen will enlighten attendees on Understanding and Leading Change. The session will conclude with Simon Elliot discussing on Intercultural Management & Teamwork.
