After taking the programme at INSEAD, I often go into a meeting with a decision semi-taken, but because of my enhanced capacity to listen and explore what others are saying, we often come out with a decision or a plan of action that is quite different. I’m better at leveraging diversity to find new paths forward. And that is a real step forward in creating value for the organisations I work for and with.
INSEAD approached the subject of Strategy for Directors from a totally different but refreshing perspective. The course brought in topics that have always engaged directors as they evaluate proposals on the future of their companies from Management but which are hardly covered in strategy courses for directors.
I would recommend this course to directors who require an update on their strategy knowledge/development across a wider range of companies, which may have applications which are beneficial in their own companies, and also from the perspective of the board working with management in a constructive manner through the strategy process to ensure optimal value creation for the company.
