Artificial intelligence, design thinking and agile leadership: the reasons that led Marie Legrand to choose EMBA
The opportunity to strengthen and structure her skills while taking a step back from her professional activity
The Executive MBA at Montpellier Business School is a highly experiential programme, built around each individual’s professional objectives. For Marie Legrand, an alumni of the programme for a few weeks and EMEA Technical Support Manager at Dell Technologies, the objective was to exchange with executives on their business transformation.
“I have been working in the digital transformation and telecommunications sector for about ten years. Today I manage an international support team based in four different countries. I chose the Executive MBA to share best practices around agile leadership, implement collective intelligence methods such as design thinking and learn how to delegate effectively. The distance I needed to take a step back from the day-to-day business while following the Executive MBA course helped me to refocus on the essentials of strategy,” says Marie Legrand.
Training to support teams through the 4th industrial revolution
Since the course is personalised, participants can build their thesis around a personal professional challenge. “For my part, I wanted to use this lever to develop my knowledge in the adoption of technological innovations by employees and company managers, with a particular focus on artificial intelligence (AI),” adds Marie Legrand.
“I have a personal passion for technological innovation, and Dell’s business model allows me to be at the heart of the artificial intelligence reactor and its deployment within the company. Through this thesis, I wanted to develop my knowledge in AI and augmented employee to better support internal initiatives, participate in the transformation of the company and transfer best practices to my teams.” she explains.
Given the ever more frequent and faster upheavals that companies are going through, managerial innovation based on the agility of leaders seems to be the best strategy to facilitate change. ” Choosing this training means deciding to develop critical thinking and thus adopt a more effective attitude in the face of change ” concludes Marie Legrand.
