The Executive Transition Program consists of three non-consecutive weeks of study and has been designed for experienced functional-level executives transitioning to an increased level of general management responsibility. Advancing to the next level of leadership implies the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as much as fundamental changes in behaviors and attitudes. We invite new and future general managers to participate in this intense learning and development intervention, which will help them to succeed at the next level and remain personally fulfilled.
General managers have to evaluate the potentially conflicting interests of the various functions. In order to decide each time which of these have priority, they have to go beyond functional jargon and be able to ask critical questions.
