Until the end of this week we will go on with our two-week strategy module.
This block focuses on how to implement a growth-driven strategy, which also yields sufficient profits. The role of innovation is key and so is market segmentation as the basis for your strategy.
Three lecturers run the module. In one of our latest tweets we reminded you of Jamie Andersen. This time I present you Dr. Gianvito Lanzolla. He is currently a reader in strategy and director of the MSc in Management at Cass Business School, which he joined Cass in 2006 as a senior lecturer.
Prior to joining Cass he was a research fellow on the faculty of the London Business School (2003-2006).
Gianvito teaches strategy, corporate strategy and advanced strategy analysis in Cass MBA and MSc programs, both in London and Dubai. He is the recipient of the Cass 2009 “Excellence in Teaching” award.
His research investigates strategies and capability configuration mechanisms that firms should adopt to successfully deal with rapid technological and institutional change.
Gianvito works with companies and executives in fast paced industries and has undertaken assignments in Europe, the Middle East, India, and the USA with several leading organizations including: Alghanim, Allianz, BSkyB, BT, IBM, ING, Nokia, Times of India, Unicredit, Vodafone Group and Vodafone India.
By the end of this week, he’ll be leaving, as our entire faculty is a part-time faculty. This allows us to permanently draw on leading specialists. During August 2013 Gianvito Lanzolla will be back at our institute for another two-week strategy module. I will early enough inform you about his comeback.
P.S. You’ll find his research output published in leading outlets –
- Academy of Management Review
- Journal of Management
- Harvard Business Review
- Production and Operations Management
- Business Strategy Review
