BOSTON, Aug. 13, 2018 /CNW/ -- Harvard Business School's online initiative, HBX has launched a new program delivered through its HBX Live Classroom to help senior executives shape the future of their companies. The course, Strategy Execution, will be led by renowned Harvard Business School strategy professor Bharat Anand and former Danaher CEO and General Electric Director Larry Culp, who is now a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School.
"Execution is the holy grail of business strategy. We designed this program for executives tasked with crafting and implementing an actionable strategic plan," said Professor Anand, who is Senior Associate Dean and faculty chair of HBX. "We have created a unique program that combines thought leadership in strategy, and learnings from some of the most successful companies to engage interested leaders around the world. I am pleased to partner with Larry Culp, who brings his own incomparable credentials around strategy execution to our classroom."
The course will take place via the HBX Live platform, a real-time, interactive online classroom, that brings Harvard Business School's famed case method to life. Participants will analyze and immerse in case studies from industry-leading companies, such as Danaher and Apple, as well as apply the lessons around strategy formulation and implementation to their own particular business challenges.
