Breadth and depth are what characterise Transition to General Management participants. As the name implies, they are so diverse in terms of nationality, international experience, culture and background that it is hard to generalise about them. But one thing is sure: they are all proven senior managers in their own area of business. And now they are ready for the next step up: a highly successful general-management career. Some have already been promoted, while others are about to make that big breakthrough. Participants also tend to fit the following profile:
- Senior functional or technical managers about to make the transition to general management or recently appointed general managers
- At least eight years’ management experience with an outstanding track record in one or more functional areas of business.
There are approximately 30 nationalities in each session and an even greater diversity of backgrounds. We ensure that everyone is at more or less that same crucial career transition.
