General Management

Transition to General Management Programs

For managers who have achieved significant success as functional experts, stepping up to a general management role can be a difficult and potentially risky transition. General managers need a comprehensive toolkit, in order to make this transition from a specialist to a generalist, a successful one.

General Managers need to understand the decision-making processes in functions other than their own; they should be able to think strategically, evaluate & implement investment decisions, that will contribute to the overall benefit of the Organization, rather than a particular function. They should have the necessary leadership competencies to motivate people, as also drive cultural change & transformation, to enhance the firm’s competitiveness in the future.

The Programs is designed to equip participants with the insights & tools needed, for becoming successful in General Management roles. It will enable both current and potential leaders, to successfully face the challenges of growth & transformation, as Senior Leaders. It gives accomplished Functional Managers, a firm-wide perspective, and the right competencies, knowledge & perspectives needed, to succeed in Strategic Senior Management Roles.
