Programme Overview

Leaders in today’s VUCA world must be capable of mobilising individuals, organisations, and networks – even beyond national boundaries – to find solutions to the ‘wicked problems’ that abound. As management professionals increasingly become influencers and ‘public leaders,’ it is more important than ever to shape and influence debates in the public sphere. IIM Indore introduces Corporate and Public Leadership in a VUCA World, which examines contentious issues managers in the corporate and non-profit sectors confront while performing their roles as ‘public leaders.’ Unlike other executive education programmes on leadership that approach the topic from the perspective of organisational behaviour and human resources (OBHR), this interactive programme highlights aspects of public leadership from a wide range of social science disciplines such as psychology, political sociology, public policy, and international relations. The programme will analyse the personal (emotional), organisational/national (policy level, particularly public policy), and global issues (international perspectives) that influence outcomes in ‘public leadership.’ It also aims to discuss the implications of these findings in managerial decision-making. Learn from IIM Indore’s eminent faculty and academicians, who will enable participants to pay special attention to issues such as changing dynamics between business, government, and society relations, negotiation strategy as part of stakeholder management, and risk examination through the lens of geopolitical developments.
