Learning methods

Seven 2-day modules run over a period of 9 months, and 5 action visits by HEC Paris consultant professors allowing for real-time experimentation within your company. Interactive exchanges among peers, and examples drawn from the specific contexts of the participants, help to anchor the lessons learned.


The program consists of: 

  • A core curriculum of seven 2-day modules, in an operational seminar format 
  • 5 action visits, including one at the start and one at the end of the program, to conduct the analysis  and fine-tune the strategic development plan 
  • 3 expert action visits, scheduled during the initial analysis, with the aim of providing answers for the most crucial priorities identified

These “action visits” will be scheduled to suit the diaries of all involved. These half-day sessions will focus on your company and, wherever possible, will take place on your premises
