In a VUCA world, your strategy is merely ‘your current best guess’. The days that we developed long-term plans should be behind us, as we switch to a more agile way of letting strategies emerge along the way. Professor Ron
Meyer will give you a peek preview of his new book, 'Strategic Leadership: From God to Guide', and discuss how your management education might make you a worse strategist, instead of a better one.
Ron Meyer is Professor of Strategic Leadership at TIAS, the business school of Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology. On the teaching side, Professor Meyer is involved in various masters programmes and acts as the academic director for a number of Company Specific Programmes. On the research side, he is working on research in the area of Managerial Cognition (what are the strategy beliefs of managers?), Strategic Leadership (which leadership styles do managers use in strategy making processes?) and Corporate Level Strategy (how do multi-business firms create value?). He also supervises a number of PhD students.

Registration at TIAS Connect. This workshop is free of charge for alumni with a membership package. Alumni without a membership package can participate for the price of € 395,00 (limited number of places available).
Workshops have a limited number of seats to ensure alumni experience extensive interaction and personal attention. To reduce the number of no-shows without advance notice and to ensure alumni on the waiting list have the opportunity to attend workshops, we will charge a fee of €40,- per workshop no-show. These fees will then be utilized for supporting full-time international students at TIAS.
