Program Overview

Business success is driven by the quality of decisions and their implementation. Quick and rational decisions can lead the company into long term growth and decisions based on flawed logic can put a company out of business. Who can know the importance of decisions, better than a leader? A leader brings a number of characteristics to take a successful decision – acumen, instinct, experience, alertness, willingness and good listening skills. However, in today's world apparently simple decisions involve several strategies in multiple spheres, taking various stakeholders into consideration. Advanced leaders need to work within multifaceted and poorly organized social contexts, where authority is diffused, resources are dispersed, stakeholders are diverse, and goals are ambiguous, vague, or conflicting. Leading within such a context requires individuals to make innumerable critical strategic, organizational, and financial decisions.

The Program for Advanced Leadership and Management (PALM) is dedicated to leverage the skills of experienced leaders who can take advanced decisions to address challenging issues. The participants will leave with a broader vision of success and shall be equipped to make tough decisions required to succeed in today's global economy.

PALM aims at providing senior executives best up-to-date management practices so that they can familiarize with the latest trends and polish their leadership skills. Focusing on impact, this high-level multinational forum challenges business leaders both personally and professionally. Through interaction with international and diverse peers as well as professors from top business schools, authors of best-selling books, and highly experienced consultants from the top global consulting firms, participants will have the opportunity to expand their business repertoire to include new concepts, paradigms and practices.

The program addresses core business management areas such as strategic planning, financial decision making, marketing management, talent acquisition, operational excellence, multinational business strategies & globalization and corporate entrepreneurship. The program also offers business simulation module to enable participants to act out in different roles in different situations and to polish their capacity to make decisions with conviction as well as argue and defend their decisions by presenting a case in a flexible, harmonious, and innovative manner.

Message from Director of Program:

Director, Programs
Era of Innovation in Leadership...

Achieving world-class results doesn't happen by accident. Today's business challenges demand strategic, responsible and ethical executive leadership and unfortunately leadership is nothing more than an industry buzz-phrase, unless it saves time, cost, or labor, and it improves quality, enables growth, or develops a new competitive advantage. The knowledge, tools and relationships that can drive results at the highest level of your enterprise will be presented in a unique learning opportunity just a few months from now.

Premier executive learning opportunity in our region, the Leadership season and annual assembly point of the world's best business leaders is about to commence for the 6th consecutive time in Madinah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Announcing the Program for Advanced Leadership and Management (PALM7) from 17th to 30th April 2015, bringing 2 weeks of non-stop interaction and learning, latest leaderships trends and best management practices from the global business leaders and world class speakers – all in one place.

Focused on building leadership and entrepreneurial excellence through our world‐class programs, we are committed to building local intellectual capital and leveraging a business model that ensures sustainability and relevant development opportunities to our present and future generations.

Top-down leadership styles have become obsolete. Today's leaders must learn how to identify and ignite the power of their entire organization. This is your chance to develop yourself as a leader who can create opportunities, envision and navigate change, accommodate ambiguity, surmount complexity, and motivate teams in a common purpose to grow organizations and create economic and social value.

Program Design Methodology

MILE follows a unique and comprehensive methodology for designing its programs and other leadership courses that it offers. Our programs answer broad industry needs and in many cases they attempt to solve existing industry pains and prevalent deficiencies that are practiced in organizational setting rendering the organizations to be unsuccessful.

At MILE we offer more than just academic curriculum taught by the leading subject experts. We follow a comprehensive cycle of program design and a standardized methodology to ensure the quality and rigor in our pedagogy. Our design team starts by reviewing latest business research and CEO voice surveys published by leading global management consultancies, this helps us to highlight new challenges and general requirement needs of the regional and local CEOs. Later, we explore leading executive education institutes and the curriculum they are offering, this leads us to contact the faculty members at top global universities who are actively engaged in executive education and who match our areas of need. As we finalize our faculty we conduct a program integration meeting which is attended by all the faculty on board and MILE's academic management committee. This meeting helps us to connect all the academic stakeholders involved and to carve out a robust program agenda which is presented for approval before the Global Academic Council at MILE. As we draw near to the program dates we conduct several short surveys, benchmarking the needs of our registered participants and making sure our faculty members adopt to their needs and learning styles.

Finally, we supplement our programs with several evening activities and optional professional training sessions offered by internationally recognized executive coaches. These activities serve to break the ice between our participants where they network and develop close network of associates. We also conduct evening medical check-ups, morning exercises and religious and spiritual activities to elevate the performance of the executives.

In short at MILE we offer a complete package for rejuvenation of your leadership skills!
