Management is responsible for securing the future success and thus the long-term economic viability of an organization. This is a question of strategic conceptualization. The quality of an organization’s management is indicated by long-term results and successful strategy implementation. It is not the vision itself that is critical, but its realization and implementation. This seminar follows a consistent approach: to impart knowledge, concepts and tools which are already tried and tested and can be directly put into practice.

«The training at Management School St.Gallen was top notch - they really go in the leadership rolls, how to deal with employees and how to run a business. The course was almost a one on one session and they go into how to improve your leadership role and how to improve your business. In my case how to be a better CEO and how to improve the management. I was just starting at that time and one year later it really has helped me and the company to be successful - even in this pandemic time.»
