Program Content

WHU’s Strategy Execution Program enhances your ability to implement corporate strategy in a high-velocity and complex market environment. The Program draws on the professional experience of you and your peers and applies it in an experiential learning setting. Team effectiveness in implementing and executing strategy strongly depends on soft skills and how teams bring them together.

A glimpse of what you can expect:

This Executive Education program has been in particular developed for experienced professionals. It offers a vivid action-based learning experience of strategy making and execution. In a multiple-round simulated industry competition, participants are divided into teams, which act as board of executive directors and run their firm in a world full of uncertainty and surprises. Teams design their business strategy, present it to a supervisory board for approval and implement it. Strategy execution happens in an increasingly complex market setting of competitive strategic interaction. Round per round teams need to make decisions concerning typical business functions, such as purchasing, production, marketing & sales, finance, human resources, and R&D.

As decision-makers, you not only play the strategist’s game and try to anticipate competitors’ moves. You also need to get your “hands dirty” by dealing with the nitty-gritty details of organizational alignment to achieve cost efficiency and operational excellence in the face of demanding customers, fierce competition, and vested stakeholder interest.

Are you a strategist? Are you ready for the challenge?
