Commenting on the programme that he would be delivering Professor Christian Stadler said: “The three topics that I will deliver are linked, and I intend to start looking at crisis (like COVID-19) at the beginning to set the ground. Having established how you can avoid failure in such challenging times and even take decisions that can help you to excel in future years, I will then move on to the other two topics. I will introduce participants to a particular tool that will only be available to the wider world autumn 2021 in an MIT Press Book I am writing together with IMP, a German consulting firm. This tool will help companies to develop a nightmare competitor and based on this a business model that sets them for success in a manner that I suspect is new to them: an open strategy process. It’s a little like open Innovation on steroids, particularly developed for strategy”. While Professor John Peters said :

“The African economy is facing a downturn, if not a complete recession for the next 12-24 months. Besides the fact that leading indicators such as GDP have softened in most countries, African organisations are facing dramatic forex fluctuations, Negative growth, Operating income shortages, low morale, and diminishing productivity.

If history serves as a guide, most leaders will prepare too little, too late, and too conservatively. Yet slowdowns bring tremendous opportunities despite the challenges.

Organisations can benefit competitively during and after the recession, and a common set of actions can bring about that success which this programme will help organisations achieve this and more”.
