You will get applicable tools you need to clarify assumptions, align expectations and define the potential scenarios, find strategic options - and execute them.

Why we created this course

We are probably living through the most challenging situation many of us will ever get a chance to experience.

The COVID19 situation is causing massive health challenges worldwide, disrupting supply chains, causing entire industries to quake and sowing massive uncertainty into the world’s financial markets.

Yet, despite the massive disruption and the significant uncertainties, industries still need to operate, companies still need a strategy and leaders still need to lead.

But, in the last 30 days alone, massive industry shifts have taken place. Strategic assumptions about financial stability and companies’ resilience have been deeply shook. Old strategies are being ripped apart. Outdated assumptions being blown up.

Today, every single company in the world needs a new strategy. And every single leader needs to lead – but in a rapidly shifting landscape.

This course is dedicated to the leaders that want to lead and the strategists that want to create new strategies.

In the days, weeks and months ahead we will need leaders that lead and strategies that are fit for an entirely new future.

We hope this course can guide you on that journey.

In a very objective, clear and structured way Chris presents how can we design not a reaction, but a response to the days and context that we are living. The mini-assignments were so valuable to me. It allowed me to catch my own helicopter and see my own ecosystems in terms of work, what to do now and what to be curious and attentive to in terms of signals. Top notch
