LAUSANNE, Switzerland, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
IMD, the world pioneer in executive education, announced a new Asia edition to its Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) program, which will take place in Singapore from November 17-22, 2013. http://www.imd.org/owp
For 19 years at the IMD campus in Lausanne, Switzerland, OWP has served as a forum for global executives looking to step back and reflect on larger business and economic trends. Now, to address the evolving needs of its clients across the globe, IMD is expanding the OWP program by establishing a second module in Asia.
IMD President and OWP Program Co-Director Dominique Turpin said: "Each year, IMD Faculty collaborates to develop a transformational and unique learning experience, based on our current research and focused on the contemporary trends and challenges facing businesses."
"OWP Singapore will address the particular needs of both Asian companies wanting to expand beyond the region and non-Asian companies seeking to better understand the specificities of the Asian market."
Program Design and Content
The OWP program is designed to provide maximum flexibility. Participants can attend both the module in Lausanne (June 2013) and the module in Singapore (November 2013), or they can simply join one of the two modules based on their specific needs and availability.
OWP Lausanne and OWP Singapore will feature timely, practical research material, real-life case studies, active class discussions and extensive group work, facilitated by IMD Faculty. OWP Singapore will emphasize materials developed based on Asian companies and on non-Asian companies doing business in Asia.
"The business challenges of a globalized economy require global solutions," said IMD Professor and OWP Program Co-Director Bettina Büchel. "With the introduction of OWP Singapore, IMD provides further learning and networking opportunities that will allow participants to move away from their daily action cycle and begin thinking of solutions that address the complexity they now face in their jobs."
"We can learn from the boldness and determination of the global contenders from this soaring region. These southeast Asian companies are delivering greater shareholder returns than their global peers," she continued.
