Dates: December 5 - 7 , 2013
Location: IESE Business School- New York Center
165 W. 57th St. (Across from Carnegie Hall)
Can people within a matrix organization collaborate and advance business goals, or do people default to silos of independent focus and end up with less-than-optimal results? IESE’s Global Business: Leadership in a Matrix program recognizes the deeply complex and potentially frustrating challenges associated with managing in a matrix environment, and offers participants a forum to better understand these challenges, to discover skills to address these challenges, and to develop strategic plans to overcome them.
The intensive 3-day program will give managers the tools to build cross-border collaboration to break down silos and ensure alignment of goals. The Global Business: Leadership in a Matrix Program will analyze the global landscape from an economic, strategic and geopolitical point of view.
Who Should Attend
Global Business: Leadership in a Matrix is designed for Managers who are currently responsible for one dimension of a complex matrix organization such as Regional or Country Vice President, leader of a global business unit, head of a global functional area, or head of a client-facing organization.
