Este curso persigue adentrarse en la realidad del trabajo de un alto ejecutivo: lo qué hace y cómo lo hace. Es un hecho conocido que la mayoría de altos directivos dedican hasta el 90% de su tiempo al día a día y menos del 10% a las tareas asociadas al pensamiento estratégico en la organización. Por eso es importante ir más allá y entender las prioridades que configuran esta actuación diaria. Al final, la mejor estrategia es aquella que se practica; la mejor organización, aquella que funciona; y el quehacer cotidiano coherente con las prioridades establecidas, la base de la continuidad con éxito de las empresas.
