HEC Paris,  ranked number 3 worldwide in Executive Education by the Financial Times in 2019, will run the ‘General Management – The Navigator Program’ Executive Short Program on December 10 and 11, 2019. This two-day program will give aspiring, current and future managers a solid, hands-on introduction to the challenges and key tasks of general management.

The program will be led by Dr. Wolfgang Amann, Affiliate Professor at HEC Paris. Dr. Wolfgang Amann is professor of strategy and leadership and currently serves as academic director of degree, custom, and certificate programs at HEC Paris in Qatar. Moreover, Dr. Amann has been designing, directing and teaching in executive education seminars for more than 20 years. Highlighting the key aspects of the program, Dr. Wolfgang Amann said: “In today’s complex business environments, being a general manager has never been more challenging. Yet, sound preparation and solid executive education can help prepare for these challenges. A state-of-the-art framework from one of the leading business schools in the world will allow participants to clarify deliverables, prioritize, anticipate issues, and drive home success.”

Dr. Amann added: “Together, we will build a solid foundation for your future success in general management. Participants will work with the analogy of general management resembling navigation. Following the motto that ‘You can’t change the wind, but you can adjust the sails’, we clarify six key steps for being more effective in general management. By the end of this session, participants will have gained a profound understanding of the roles and tasks, the opportunities and challenges, and the necessity to combine insights from leadership, governance and strategy.”

The program combines several high-impact learning methodologies serving and addressing the four main types of learners including the activists, the theorists, the reflectors and the pragmatists. International and local mini-cases will help apply and practice the core framework of the program.
