Programme description

Competing in innovation-driven economies shifts the sustainability of your competitive advantage from your tangible onto your intangible resources.

This course focuses on the role that the people working in your organisation play in creating and maintaining a sustainable advantage.

During this course, you will discover the advantage of engaging the people working in your organisation, inspiring them to put to use their gifts of creativity, passion and initiative at work every day.

Ultimately, this course will help you to discover your ability and your role as a leader; a leader creating not only a successful organisation but one inspiring people to be exceptional in their work.

Great stuff!

by Gian Tapinassi
The time spent on this course was worth every second. Having a startup I'm very interested in this subject and this course was a definite eye opener. The course has been designed in an appropriate way with adequate examples. The course is giving an explanation of what is easily replicable by your competitors and what is not. How and why human resources can become the invaluable asset of your organisation and what you should do in order to let them become so. The course is also talking about the role of culture in building a sustainable advantage. I found this course incredibly useful!
