DOHA: HEC Paris, the leading global business school, conducted a business simulation workshop for Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC).
The centre provides customised professional training to develop Qatari leadership potential.
Senior managers from government institutions and businesses participated in the Current and Future Executive Leaders Programme.
The workshop was developed by HEC Paris and implemented by Professors Alain Roux and Corey Phelps and it required all participants to undergo decision-making rounds using NegoSim, a computer-assisted business simulation, as a guiding thread.
Over three days, participants were required to manage their own company according to a new strategy. During decision-making sessions, professors supported groups by stimulating group thinking and answering questions.
The programme highlighted excellence in day-to-day operations, value creation, partnership, and group work in three fields modern managers have to master: strategy, finance and leadership. The main objective of exchanges between action and knowledge was to help participants adopt a broad view of management and migrate from excellence in day-to-day management to a leader’s perspective.
“This programme provided a unique learning opportunity for participants to address challenges and experience paradoxes modern leaders have to live with,” said Professor Laoucine Kerbache, Chief Executive Officer and Academic Dean of HEC Paris in Qatar. The Peninsula
