Today a digital mindset with data, algorithms, and AI is key to a path to success. This February we are preparing a special educational visit to Amazon Web Service’s Digital Builders Showroom in Munich. Traditionally Amazon’s mission is to be “Earth’s most customer-centric company”. Today, Amazon spans the retail, logistics, consumer technology, cloud computing, and media and entertainment industries. Is spreading too thin a challenge for the organization? Gain a new competitive advantage by taking a deep dive into Amazon’s strategy and organizational culture via Harvard Business Case discussion by session host Prof. Dr. Fred van Eenennaam combined with a tour and executive workshops provided by Amazon.
Learn about how Google manages innovation at scale. On the two-day visit, you can hear the presentation of selected directors, engage in a Harvard Business Case discussion, and take a trip around the facilities.
Other Executive Education Programs:
Prof. Dr. Fred van Eenennaam besides being an esteemed academic is an international non-executive and supervisory board member and the director of the consultancy firm The Decision Group.

During the Harvard Business Case Method you can put yourself in the shoes of decision-makers at a real organisation facing a business issue. Often, the objective of the discussion is not to reach a consensus, but to understand how different people arrive to diverse conclusions. The discussions help you to get insights into various strategic and governance challenges and improve your decision-making process.
One business case discussion can take 1 -2 hours long., depending on the session. During the masterclasses the case discussions lasts for 1 hour 30 mins.
Our programs are dedicated to executives, directors and business leaders. You can expect to have practical discussions with a small group of peers during the sessions. This ensures high quality, dynamic conversations and match making opportunities.
