Doha: Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC) yesterday concluded an Executive Education Workshop entitled Managing a Multinational Enterprise – The Leader’s Perspective.
Professor Corey Phelps, Associate Professor of Strategy and Business Policy at HEC Paris and Professor Alain Roux, Adjunct Faculty member at HEC Paris delivered a three-day session to the QLC Current and Future Leaders group.
The workshop was the next stage in QLC’s programme for Current and Future Leaders group, which was set up under the patronage of the Heir Apparent H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, to assist future leaders to reach their full potential and also support the country’s drive towards the Qatar National Vision 2030.
The economic strategy modules were based on the HEC NegoSim business simulation exercises, which deliver module based strategic role-playing. The exercises enable candidates to research and analyse real life business scenarios and then create solutions for cost control, general management, financial management and international finance scenarios.
“The NegoSim business simulation is based on HEC’s very successful courses and as one of the leading business schools in Europe, is ideally suited to be part of QLC ethos of delivering international level leadership solutions for our candidates,” said Sheikh Dr Abdulla bin Ali Al Thani, Board Member and Executive Director of QLC.
“Market conditions are such that our future leaders need to be able to understand and react to new types of behaviours, develop competitive strategies and have internationally accredited measures of performance. Modules using the NegoSim platform offer our candidates a real insight into how we can address future challenges and learn through practical experience.”
Khaled El Gohary, Director of Strategy and Performance added, “This program offers our candidates tangible business skills and through knowledge sharing, best practice simulation and practical exercises we are creating that framework for our future leaders to form clear and robust strategies.”
