HEC Paris has conducted a custom-designed program in Qatar in the form of a Business Simulation Workshop for the Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC).QLC provides customized professional training in order to develop Qatari leadership potential.
Involving participants comprising senior managers from diverse government institutions and businesses, the Business Simulation module of the ‘Current & Future Executive Leaders Program’ was held from 15 to 17 December 2013 at the Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha.
The Business Simulation Workshop was developed by HEC Paris and implemented by Professors Alain Roux and Corey Phelps.It required all participants to undergo a series of decision-making rounds using NegoSim – a computer-assisted business simulation – as a guiding thread.
Over a period of three days, participants were required to manage their own company according to a new strategy. During decision-taking sessions professors also supported the different groups by stimulating the group thinking and answering questions.
The objectives of the custom program involved excellence in day-to-day operations, value creation, partnership, and group work in three fields modern managers have to master: strategy, finance and leadership.
Overall, the main objective of the exchanges between action and knowledge was to help participants adopt a broad view of management and to migrate from excellence in day-to-day management to a leader’s perspective.
