Testimonials

 

Here is a sample of what participants have to say about the value of the Transition to General Management programme.

After the Transition to General Management programme I had much more confidence, as well as a lot of curiosity and willingness to change. Having spent seven years in operational marketing I felt ready to take more risks and seize new opportunities.

It was a standout course, in both my life and career. I can’t imagine not having done it. It was so incredibly profound. Before attending, I knew it was going to be valuable, but I didn’t realise the sheer depth of knowledge and impact it would have...In a professional sense, it helped me achieve where I wanted to be. The programme has been instrumental in enabling me to achieve a goal of becoming a CEO earlier rather than later in my career.

It’s a moment that helps you start looking at your career, your industry and at your professional development differently. It’s like reframing yourself.

A very useful programme that gives a holistic view of value creation in international business management. Transition to General Management helped me understand “Who I am” and how to overcome my limitations thanks to the help of some very talented and enthusiastic peers from all over the world. Transition to General Management is not simply a one month programme; it will influence the rest of my professional and personal life!

I certainly wasn’t expecting to discover a different way of thinking about finance after all these years! But with Kevin Kaiser’s 'Blue Line Management' concept, I have a brand new passion.

The key messages around value creation are continually driven throughout the programme, and I’ve found they come up in my mind every day. I’m constantly analysing activities and asking what value they bring. The follow-up module was the missing piece of the jigsaw. By doing everything we’d learned about through the simulation, I truly understood it all. The follow-up also gave me the confidence to embed the learning from Transition to General Management in my daily work.

It definitely answered my need to step back from day-to-day work and develop my understanding of complex organisations. It also helped me to see some of the dilemmas of general management more clearly.

Continuous Improvement and Transformation Manager, Atos, France

I wanted a programme that was more than just a few days, as it had to take me up to a whole new career level. But an EMBA would have been too long. The two-times-two-weeks format seemed just right. And I wanted to be at a leading international school – not just to get the best education available but also to benchmark myself with top people.

This programme really opened my mind and gave me an entire new perspective on many things! I can truly say that it is the best programme ever, and my only regret is that I did not do it earlier! It has really helped me to place emphasis on the value side of the business instead of solely looking at the cost side. Understanding what a customer really values brings great opportunities to enrich and innovate our offerings in a very targeted and sensible manner.

The whole programme teaches you why you should move from giving answers to asking questions, from telling people what to do to guiding them in the right direction... I felt like a different guy when I came back to work and I still feel that way! I believe I opened myself to new ways of thinking.
