Most top management surveys report problem solving and effective communication as among the top five skills for leaders at every level.

Good problem solvers understand their briefing at the first meeting, they quickly identify solutions, prioritize and leverage delegation, they are reliable, independent and consistent.

Effective communicators are capable of meaningful synthesis, they communicate key messages up-front, structure their arguments with logic, organise their documents with effective storylines, they engage and influence audiences.

module is designed leaving best practices from the McKinsey Problem Solving approach and it aims to accelerate capability building by using proven teaching techniques, in particular:
  • Take-home, ready-to-implement frameworks, which can be practiced immediately with “Monday morning” challenges.
  • Specifically designed case study, which provides a platform for discovering and practicing methodologies and frameworks.
  • Action learning didactics, which include case discussions, role plays, presentations and group works.
