  • Objectives

    The course gives participants the mindset, the approach, the methodologies and the tools to manage people and projects in a super-V.U.C.A. world, acquiring specific intercultural communication, negotiation and bargaining skills that are therefore vital for any leader defining and implementing international development strategies, planning entry and distribution strategies in international markets, identifying and developing international Strategic Alliances and Partnerships in this new global and competitive scenery.
