Leadership and Management

Modulverantwortliche: Prof. Dr. Mario Vaupel  

Kurssprache: Englisch

Leistungsnachweis: Präsentation, Projektstudienarbeit   

With the rapid development of digital technology and the ever existing financial issues all over the world, the business environment these days is becoming more and more volatile. The volatility of the market within industries is increasing the competition among the industries’ players, which forces companies to come up with new business strategies or processes that will allow them to stay on top of their games. These changes, which are constant and ongoing, do not always bring immediate improvement to the organizations’ performance. More often, the change implementation process puts a significant strain on companies and their employees.

Leadership is one of the critical factors that can affect the implementation of change and how employees react towards it. Leaders are expected to be able to bring their team members together to work towards the same goals that support the organizations or businesses in which they are working. When leaders are able to bring out their team’s best performance, this will result in better performance of the organization as a whole, where they are ready to face the competitive market and become more successful.

Through this program, we aim to help organization leaders to define an effective and future-ready leadership approach for themselves and their organizations.

Lernziele

Managerinnen und Manager müssen täglich komplexe Entscheidungen unter Unsicherheit treffen. Und häufig führen diese nicht zu gewünschten Ergebnissen. Der gescheiterte Zusammenschluss von Daimler und Chrysler, der verpatzte Einstieg von Nokia in den Markt für Smartphones oder der Untergang von Unternehmen wie Nixdorf oder Grundig zeugen davon.

Im Zentrum der Diskussion steht die Frage in Theorie und Praxis, ob unsere Intuition oder unsere Ratio die bessere Grundlage für Entscheidungen bietet. Das Ergänzungsmodul geht ausführlich auf die Vor- und Nachteile beider Denkmodelle ein und veranschaulicht diese anhand von Beispielen.
