Business decisions are driven increasingly by the financials — and having a good grasp of finance and accounting tools can help every corporate manager be more strategic stewards of the bottom line and even forecast the future.
Effective Execution leverages the research and thought leadership of Wharton faculty who teach in the school’s MBA and Executive Education programs. Faculty will share highly actionable tools and frameworks from a variety of perspectives, and provide feedback on your own execution challenges. A highlight of the program is an intensive Strategy Execution Workshop that will help you integrate the week’s learnings and create a plan to implement when you get back to work.
Highly practical and hands-on, this program uses a blend of relevant case studies infused with current strategy implementation techniques, group discussion, and exercises to help you strengthen your leadership capabilities and improve your ability to influence and get buy-in across your organization. Effective Execution is beneficial even if you have an MBA, as it tackles cross-functional and silo-busting issues related to strategy implementation.
