Innovation

Gamechangers & Business Modeling

We live in incredible times. Most likely, we will see more change in the next 10 years than the last 250 years. The change is unstoppable, driven by technology and globalization. Gamechangers are companies that drive change, as they think and act differently. They are more ambitious, think bigger and have long term visions. They find their own space, create new markets and outthink competition. They are disruptive and innovative!

The program consists of two modules of two days each, taking place in Hamburg (or in-house). The focus: Growth through innovation and business model development.

The GERBUS “Gamechangers & Business Modeling” executive program enables you to develop the right strategy, smarter innovation and winning business, applied to your industry and your company. It is fast, detailed, facilitated and practical, applied to the best opportunities to help your own business innovate and grow, and for you to lead and create your better future.

Becoming a „Gamechanger“ is partly a matter of mind-set and partly about new approaches – incl. learning from business, who have already changed the game. Learn to connect the dots!

Your benefit:

  • Condense, fast-paced and intense program for tomorrow’s leaders
  • Insight into the dynamics of global and national change
  • Training in the tools, models and processes applied by gamechanging companies
  • Action and implementation oriented learning – applicable for you and your business

During and after the program trained coaches can support you – optionally – with the implementation of your new business model. The program is offered as open as well as customized / in-house.

Strategy

Strategic Leadership – Beyond Competition

Even in times of constant change, strategy remains important. The right strategy should be able to answer key questions as why, how & what and serve as guideline and framework for any future related decision. This program is about strategy and the approach, like in the Blue Ocean Strategy concept, how to avoid competition (not beating them).

The program consists of two modules of 2 days each, taking place in Hamburg (or in-house). The focus: Your strategic mind-set – beyond the barriers of competition.

In today’s global economy product differentiation or a low costs base is not enough to ensure sustainable competitive advantage. Recent years’ leading strategy concepts generally agree, strategy should focus on how to create new markets, new products and service – with the objective of reducing or even prevent direct competition.

In this program, you will learn a number of different strategic approaches, tools methods and processes to enable value added innovation – beyond direct competition. We look at examples like Nespresso, Cirque du Soleil, Dyson, Starwood Hotels, Apple, Gillette, Salesforce.com, Wikipedia and many others – all companies, which have gone new ways.

We examine various strategic options such as co-operations and alliances with customers, suppliers or even competitors. Finally, we focus the challenge of securing a sustainable strategy process and successful execution.

Your benefit:

  • Condense, fast-paced and intense program about new strategic choices, going beyond competition
  • Learning and training in the current leading strategic approaches, tools, methods and processes
  • Insight into how to achieve strategic advantages through co-operations and alliances; when & how!
  • Action and implementation oriented learning – applicable for you and your business

The program will enable you to work on your own strategy development. During and after the program trained coaches can support you – optionally – with the development and execution of your strategy. The program is offered as open as well as customized / in-house.

Tuition is in English. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate of participation from GERBUS Academy. The Strategic Leadership – Beyond Competition Program is eligable for the “Certificate of Management Excellence” – please find more information below.

Leadership

High Impact Authentic Leadership

Change requires leadership. No matter what is driving change – external factors, own innovation or a strategic new direction – change without leadership is impossible.

Leadership is personal and no longer, as maybe in earlier times, based on previous records of success. Today’s leaders must be visionary, credible, trust-building and authentic. Their main task is to create and maintain the right framework for change to take place.

The program consists of two modules of 2 days each, taking place in Hamburg (or in-house). The focus: Your personal leadership and success.

The centre of this program is you: How you can develop your personal leadership skills – based on who you are – and how you can navigate, “manage” and lead change in complex, existing structure in light of uncertainty and risks.

What drives you? What is your “why”? What are you passionate about and what your visions? Are you able to adjust, develop and change? Where – or what – is your “safe haven”, where do you reenergize and find your personal motivation? Can you be truly authentic, do you truly care about those in your direct professional environment and are you a role model? Clearly, these are very personal questions – and not easy to answer. But it is not always about right or wrong, firstly it is about knowing who you are and how you impact others.

Leadership development serves one purpose only – to make you successful and enable you to reach your goals.

Your benefit:

  • Condense and intense – focused on your personal leadership
  • Learning and training in methods, means and tools to access and develop your leadership skills
  • Your personal roadmap for developing an authentic organization and high leadership impact
  • New leadership competences – action and implementation oriented

The program will enable you to work on your personal leadership development. During and after the program trained coaches can support you – optionally – with continous development. The program is offered as open as well as customized / in-house.

Tuition is in English. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate of participation from GERBUS Academy. The High Impact Authentic Leadership Program is eligable for the “Certificate of Management Excellence” – please find more information below.
