Complementary Information

Executive development is a generic term for activities aimed at developing the skills and competencies of those that (will) have executive positions in organisations. While "executive" and "manager" and "leader" are often used interchangeably, "executive" is commonly used to signify the top 5% to 10% of the organization. Similarly, "development" and "training" and "education" are often used as synonyms, however "development" is generally seen as the more encompassing of the three in terms of activities that build skills and competencies.

Joyce acquired her knowledge of Executive Development from her days at Ivey in Canada, then IMD in Switzerland, where she developed award-winning case studies participated as assistant faculty on Custom Corporate Management Programmes.

Eli's hands-on experience as a manager, in both multi-national and SMB contexts, provides a practical complement to the academic teaching.

Global Leadership in the Cloud

CAPRESE is supporting IMD in developing and delivering their new program offering, Being Innovative, which is a new type of distance-learning: “Global Leadership in the Cloud”.

With this approach, you do all of your learning and directly apply the concepts to your daily work, right from your own desk without having to travel and at low cost – a truly leading-edge alternative to traditional management development programs. The program brochure Being Innovative provides further information.

Each weekly module:

The program wraps up with a powerful consolidating challenge, which gives you a roadmap for innovation (through a Final Assignment, where you identify and develop an innovative idea, including 60-day Implementation Plan to assure its success!)

Joyce and Bill offer a live webinar under the title "Office Hours", in which they address questions submitted by participants
