REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Global. It's a great adjective for today's business landscape. And it's at the heart of Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP). 

For those who recently joined us, we hope you are now inspired and motivated to propel your business forward. And for those who missed us in Lausanne, the next OWP takes place in Singapore this November. 

On the subject of global, for those looking to expand beyond borders, don't miss our new study The Globalization Capability Gap: Execution, Not Strategy, Separates Leaders from Laggards.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
