Dear Reader,

IMD recently jumped back on the fast track in welcoming legendary track star Usain Bolt on campus for the third time. Bolt's career has been a journey in translating potential into achievement.

Like Bolt, business leaders must also undertake a journey of self-assessment and improvement in order to realize future goals. IMD's Program for Executive Development (PED) sets a framework for building your journey forward.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
