Executive Development Programmes

eXECUTIVE eDU 2019.jpgTechnological change and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are transforming the global business landscape like never before. Increasing competition, shifting customer tastes and requirements, the globalisation of markets and changing demographic trends, are drastically altering how companies operate in almost every region and industry in the world.

In this new era of complexity and uncertainty, bold, innovative and visionary leadership is required from both business and government alike.  The business environment in Africa in particular, requires a fresh and innovative approach, one that is contextually relevant and mindful of socio-economic dynamics and culture beyond conventional business acumen. Executive Education at the JBS therefore offers targeted and customised interventions that are rich in industry insights and reinforced by the latest innovative thinking required in the era of industry 4.0, enabling delegates to achieve their full potential professionally and personally.

Executive Education Offerings 2019


           Become proficient at project management. An essential workplace skill that can boost the impact you have on any organisation.

           Expand your overview of financial performance from a commercial perspective across management functions

            Storytelling is the most influential of all the arts, and invaluable in business. But don't just take our word for it, take it from two                            billionaires. Apple founder Steve Jobs said, "The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision,                  values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come."

           Develop your negotiation skills to create more effective partnerships and better results for your organisation.

           Good strategy design is at the core of business success. But developing an effective strategy has become an increasingly difficult                   process, as seismic shifts in competition, globalisation and digitisation have rendered many traditional strategic frameworks irrelevant.

           The ability to execute strategy is at the core of sustained business success. Even the best strategic plans are of little value if we don’t              have the right organisational capacity to effectively execute them.


           Delve into the core aspects of implementing strategic deliverables and cascading these across your teams.

           Access a network of leaders and coaches to enhance your personal growth.

           Leverage marketing tools and practices to enhance your clients' experiences.

           Implement practices focussed on business with the purpose to generate sustainable value for your organisation.

           Learn about innovative success stories in the context of industry 4.0 and how to prepare and future-proof your organisation for this      digital revolution.

            Trends are large global trends that will play out over time, and impact all of humankind. Being aware of these is being forearmed. 

          The HR Series will address key issues facing HR practitioners with robust debate and suggestions to enhance this function.
