Competitive advantage is not only difficult to achieve — it’s a challenge to maintain, especially in times of uncertainty and change. In a highly collaborative learning environment, you’ll learn how to leverage top Kellogg faculty members' latest thinking on how to remain competitive in challenging markets. You’ll gain practical insights from in-depth examination of the experiences of other leading companies and why certain strategies fail and others succeed.
As you work with fellow, likeminded participants, you’ll explore how best to apply those insights to build a solid foundation for your own profitability and growth. You’ll sharpen your analytic skills, learn how to capitalize on growth opportunities and avoid strategic mistakes. You’ll leave with a clear articulation of your organization’s competitive advantages and a powerful, long-term action plan for making the most of your competitive strengths.
This program will be offered in a live virtual format through spring 2021. Our live virtual programs are built to deliver a rich experience that’s comparable to our in-person programs. You will have the opportunity to engage with our faculty and your peers in live discussions and lecture sessions. You will come away with the tools to navigate and succeed in the new business landscape.
