While traditional management qualifications focus on academic learning and theoretical studies, global CEO surveys point to increasing operational complexity and technology management and deployment factors as the most important challenges facing business today. Executive education, therefore, needs to be re-aligned to focus on the interconnectedness of the organisation and must emphasise the role and impact of emerging information management technologies on rapid decision making, ongoing strategy development and creativity.
This paper proposes a structure for executive education that incorporates work-based projects to enable the executive more effectively to understand and interpret the organisation, its procedures and its management processes, so that practical contributions toward their improvement, optimisation and relevance to the bottom line can be made with immediate effect. The structure and scope of these projects are the key focus of the course, and the paper outlines the main features in their selection and management.
