Six months after the program, I led a major reorganization of the division I oversee, dealing head on with key technological changes in our markets. IMD helped me translate the theme of breakthrough into my business. It was very powerful.

To enjoy above average or superior success, you must understand why adapting is such a challenge and address this systematically…. A great breakthrough leader knows when their business model is not aligned to one of the opportunities opening up in their market. They are masters of change management.
