JOB OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Course Duration: Over a 5-month time frame

The global economy is increasingly more complex. C-suite leaders must, therefore, continuously seek to develop new skills and capabilities for understanding complexity and leading for impact in this exciting new era. Consider the vast variety of disruptions we face today, ranging from how traditional businesses are being disrupted by digital technologies, tourism and retail services forced to close during the pandemic, political upheaval and protectionist policies disrupting the global supply chain.
