Short course description english flag

The course is about company management. Which means the combination of initiatives that whoever has got the responsibility of leading an organization, needs to implement to ensure that targets are met. Company management is often thought to be as important as strategy. Up to the point where average ideas with good implementation create more value than excellent ideas with bad implementation. The way good company management creates value is twofold:
1. It allows for the production of good and growing levels of income.
2. It reduces the risk profile associated with the production of such income.
Company management is three things:
1. It’s a set of techniques and methodologies that make things work well. Which range from the way components of the profit and loss account (revenues, costs, risks) are governed, to most organizational matters (human resources and structure, mainly).
2. It’s rigor. Rigor being the ongoing display of seriousness and determination by the members of the management team.
3. It’s good exercise of company leadership. Whereby, whoever is in charge is capable of inspiring colleagues and convincing them to follow him / her.
