Advantages and Exclusive Features of Our Course

Innovative managers and executives: how to anticipate changes and activate levers of efficiency and effectiveness.

The current situation requires professionals capable of anticipating changes, identifying and activating all possible levers of efficiency and effectiveness, understanding technology and its potential, and designing increasingly flexible organizations capable of adapting. These are challenges that cannot be ignored to avoid becoming obsolete and not surviving in an ever-evolving market.

Technical skills and cross-functional mindset:
the winning combination.

Technical skills alone are not enough. They must be accompanied by a cross-functional mindset that, through technology, helps capture opportunities for rethinking and redesigning operational processes. The key is a training system capable of providing a continuous path of knowledge, stimuli, information, and updated evolutionary scenarios to support the need for new technical skills and a flexible mindset capable of countering the obsolescence of content and processes through a direct connection between work, business, and professions.

Why Choose the Master

“In the coming years, companies will have to deal with two elements: an inevitable generational shift – Gen Z will be the company’s reference target – and at the same time an ever-increasing speed with which innovations will enter the market. Hence, the duty of companies to adapt to change.”
Massimo Paloni
Chief Operations and Innovation Officer Bulgari
“Competition on different markets, which no longer has geographies, much less reference sectors, requires a profound review of business models. Consequently, it becomes essential for companies to review the operating model with which they produce goods or provide services.”
