Developing consulting skills in organisational design (COSK)

Langue: anglais
Enseignant-pilote: Louise Colling
Remarque: aucun pré-requis
Type A

Organisations are accelerating their transformation pace, as ever-growing expectations, environmental constraints and technological breakthrough impact their activities - among other triggers. They rely on management consultants to support them and redesign their organisation (processes, governance, HR, management, infrastructure, etc.).

Becoming a consultant in organisation and management is an exciting and demanding journey; a junior consultant is expected to display a wide range of hard (organisational design, HR processes, project management, stakeholder engagement, change management, etc.) and soft (growth mindset, relationships, leadership, business acumen, etc.) skills and hit the ground running.

If you envision a career in management consulting and/or if you are interested in organisational transformation, this workshop will help you (1) understand the objectives and context of organisational design, (2) learn an approach and methodology for OD and (3) develop your skills in OD as you apply it step by step to a case study. 

Entrepreneurial marketing (ENTM)

Langue : anglais
Enseignant-Pilote :  Michael Ghilissen
Remarque: aucun pré-requis. 
Type A

Learning from high-potential ventures.

The workshop revolves around professionally-financed businesses that are defined by their use of  technology to create breakthrough opportunity. It is organized around three major themes: 

1. How do you choose your products and your customers and your partners? Why? Because choices must be made quickly since the scarcest resource in any entrepreneurial situation is time. You must focus your effort on those products and customers that leverage the organization's time. Not only will you have to know how to play your part on the team you join, but also you may even have to know how to recruit an industry coalition to deliver the business.

2. How do you apply sales/-marketing tools effectively in an entrepreneurial environment? Why? Because many people who have been successful in mature, stable companies fail when they transition to an entrepreneurial situation. They usually fail for one of two reasons: their team takes too long to make management decisions or they do not know how to make use of the resources that they do have to increase the odds of achieving the ends they desire. Skilled use of the right tools can really help give you a competitive edge.

3. How do you transition from the products and customers you have to the products and customers you need? Why? Because while most companies can find at least some customers to buy their product or service, many fail to move from that small cadre of early adopters to the mainstream of customers that are critical for the long-term viability of a firm. Even in mature businesses, companies that have prospered for years falter as the world around them changes and, suddenly, reward awaits only those who have the skills to leap away from the world that they know towards totally new businesses.

New Insights on Project Management (INPM)

Langue: English 
Enseignant-Pilote : Sylvia Nitelet 
Remarque : no pre-requisites
Type B

If you go looking for it, you will find several theoretical approaches to project management, all with a specific view on how to do things. But how to choose among all those? Is there really one best way? And if it exists, how to convert it into practice?

This workshop will introduce students to at least two methods of project management (waterfall and agile), with the belief that the choice of a good project management approach is based on a throughout understanding of the context and of the various roles of a project manager – in charge of the project accomplishment, of course, but also in charge of a team and its specific dynamics.

Taught by an expert project manager, this workshop will rely on group dynamics, collective intelligence and a lot of practical exercises to help you develop your project management skills.

Develop a City Branding Strategy (PLAB)

Langue : anglais/français
Enseignant-Pilote : Anne-Christine Cadiat
Remarque: aucun pré-requis
Type B

Cities are today facing competition just like most products, services and organizations. Several cities decided to jump on the marketing train and developed a branding strategy. Of course cities aren’t common goods, they have specific characteristics and attributes. Branding a city is somewhat different from branding a consumer good. We have to take into account all the actors that will take part in the branding strategy and all the targets that a city might want to reach.  

We will focus on our local environment: our beautiful city of Liège. City managers will be invited to share with us their current projects. You will then collect complementary information about this situation, analyze the data you collected and creatively develop a branding strategy for our city. To reach this goal, you will work in teams. At the end of the workshop, each team presents its own project in front of classmates and city representatives.
