MBA Premier League Boot Camp

Based on the HBR Published Platform for Connected Leadership Framework©, this Boot Camp is designed for MBA Alumni and other Business Leaders who want to move beyond the equipped competencies of a typical MBA. It is aimed at Thought Leaders, Continuous Learners, Doers, and Inspirers boldly challenging the current way of the world. Leave the destruction of COVID-19 in your rear-view mirror by completing this MBA Premier League Boot Camp – A program for Business Leaders, presented by Business Leaders.

Thought Leaders revolutionising aged Thought Paradigms and frameworks for strategic competitiveness and balanced financial sustainability. Continuous Learners embracing future technologies as enablers for a better world where human and machine intelligences plait together for an imagined ideal.  Future Doers surpassing empty promises and passionate speeches by implementing real change. Inspirers focusing on the greatness within each of us across all generations – young and old, harnessing wisdom, imagination, and dreams.


If there is one function that has changed most radically in business organisations globally, it is that of HRM. This is due to the radical shift in workplace practices with people working from home and synergizing and optimising through distributed teams. A new skill set is required, moving into the future world of work, making HRM pivotal in rescoping job attribute requirements, development, and retention of skills.

Companies that were forced into closure during the pandemic did so partially due to the seizure of global economic activity. However, force closure, in many instances, is also a function of poor Financial risk management whereby companies overexpose themselves through wrongful gearing practices. Linking this to economic systemic risk, such as single sourcing from one global distribution point, such as China, increases the financial risk of companies and economic systems of the globe even more. During this session, financial experts from successful companies during this time, share their views on gearing for future balanced sustainable competitiveness.

COVID-19 has highlighted the dangers of single sourcing supplies from a centralised global point. During this unit we explore the way of diversifying global supply chain risk to remain competitive, even in the presence of disruption and supply chain seizures.

The rise of Platform businesses gives new meaning to the term “opportunity” for entrepreneurs. We look at the most successful platform entrepreneurial enterprises and what lead to their success, before, during and post COVID-19.

Strategy can no longer be viewed and treated as the main building block in competitiveness due to increased levels of unpredictability in the external business environment and radical changes in the internal world of work dynamics and components. A necessary shift is towards business model flexibility, replacing the limitation of strategy as being primarily a competitor positioning function, to one of implementation and a competitive operating architecture.

Understanding the strategic impetus of digital marketing, social media strategies, social media marketing campaigns and the changing world of below and above the line advertising, to through the line advertising. These are but some of the key attributes of the change in marketing. Big data as a driver of customer insights, are another. During this unit, participants will get a chance to actively participate on how the world of apps have revolutionized the way we do business, as well as the way we market and engage with multi-dimensional stakeholders.

A key consideration for every businessperson today should be whether their leadership skills are still relevant and sufficient. Prior to this unit, participants will complete a Future Fit Leadership Skills Assessment and taken through a power packed explanation of identifying future strengths, weaknesses, and personal development initiatives, readying them for future acceleration.

As part of E-Business, Artificial Intelligence is being viewed as a leading disruptor through technological developments itself. During this unit, participants will engage in a gamified simulation that will help them to future proof their companies and get ready to win in the next industrial revolution.

Four of the six global transformations are covered during this unit. These are The Wellbeing Economy – Redefining Health, The Net Zero Economy – Scalable low carbon solutions, The Circular Economy – Waste not want not and The BioGrowth Economy – New agriculture and biomaterials. A fascinating look into the future and how corporate social responsibility can literally change the world.
