More than 50 Lebanon-based CEOs and senior executives gathered for the morning‘s meeting which involved a discussion about how executives make decisions in increasingly complex and uncertain environments. The event featured presentations by Carlos P. Hornstein, Executive Director Business Development at IESE Business School introducing the IESE Business School and the Global CEO program among other senior executive programs. Welcoming remarks were provided by Mitri Doumet, CEO at BMB
“It is very beneficial for the business community in Lebanon to establish a relationship with IESE in a world that is constantly changing and moving towards globalization and BMB is really proud to contribute towards this goal.” commented Mr. Mitri Doumet, CEO at BMB. “This event has been very successful in establishing a first link with this prestigious Business school, and I hope that we will have even more events in the future that will consolidate this relationship.” added Mr. Doumet
IESE Prof. Joan Fontrodona, professor in Business Ethics presented a framework through a live and interactive case study that considered all aspects necessary to make quick, informed and effective decisions. He also presented a session about insights into decision making and how to cope with changing environments.
“Management is not about applying techniques. Management is an art, where the personal characteristics of the managers introduce a novelty in how things are done; management is a profession that has a significant ethical dimension, since it is important not only to do things right, but to do the right things. Management is not only about getting things done; it is mostly about people. When managers realize that the most important part of their task is the impact of their actions in themselves, and in the people that work with them, then, the content of their job and the responsibility of their actions change dramatically.” - Prof. Joan Fontrodona.
This event was a great opportunity for top executives to refresh and update their knowledge, challenge their management practices and examine their leadership notes through two top level sessions about insights into Decision Making.
