Leadership development through business projects
Within the frame of MiL’s tailored leadership development programs we have designed and carried out several different real and strategic business projects. The starting point is that the most effective way to learn about leadership will come from working with an important issue for a real customer where the participants themselves are responsible for analysis, strategic decisions and implementation.
MiL’s business projects use the strategic needs of the organisation as a basis for individual leader development and has over the years generated considerable educational revenues – earnings or savings, alternatively, which often exceed widely the costs of the actual development investment.
Starting from strategically important projects gives both business development and individual leader development in the form of increased strategic ability, widened perspectives and enhanced action repertoire. MiL’s business projects also ensure that the content in the specific leader development program is of the highest relevance and actuality, and that newfound lessons and competencies are anchored and stay with key persons in the organisation.
