Strategy implementation is a hot topic today. Managers and entrepreneurs spend millions of dollars on consulting or training in the hope to create brilliant strategies. But too often brilliant strategies do not translate into brilliant performance. Strategy implementation ranks high on entrepreneurs and managers' agendas but it is a topic that nobody has explained satisfactorily.
Join our session and hear Professor Kurt Verweire take on how you should tackle your strategy implementation challenge. Learn from his insights and many examples that put strategy implementation into perspective.
Are you ready for a strategy journey? Vlerick Business School together with The Bulletin join forces this year for the Brussels International Days 2014 offering a hot topic session at our campus followed by a networking cocktail with fellow Internationals!
