The University of Adelaide’s MBA Program will this month play host to one of the world’s leading experts on business strategy, Professor Cynthia A. Montgomery from Harvard Business School.
Professor Montgomery, Harvard Business School Strategy Expert, is the Timken Professor of Business Administration and immediate past head of the Strategy Unit at Harvard Business School, where she’s taught for 20 years. She is also a top-selling author, and her work has appeared in nearly a dozen top-tier academic journals and managerial outlets, including the Harvard Business Review, the Financial Times, McKinsey Quarterly, and the American Economic Review.
In her only public appearance while in the country, Professor Montgomery will be lecturing in the Grand Ballroom at Intercontinental Adelaide on Wednesday November 14 from 1200-1400. Professor Montgomery will lead a Q&A with the audience following her presentation.
Director of the Uni of Adelaide’s MBA Program, Damian Scanlon, says Professor Montgomery will discuss what strategy is, why it matters, and what it takes to lead the effort.
“Driven by the voices and experiences of the countless executives she has taught from around the world, she will be urging local business leaders to embrace their role as strategists, and highlighting their unique position to answer the most fundamental question facing every business – does their company truly matter?” he says. “By bottling the experiences and insights gained in the classrooms of Harvard, Professor Montgomery empowers leaders to develop the skills and sensibilities they need to become strategists themselves.
“We are incredibly grateful to have someone of [Professor Montgomery’s] standing and international expertise attend our event and share her expertise and knowledge."
Attendance at Professor Montgomery’s is open to anyone who wishes to attend. For more info and to purchase tickets click here.
