Making It Happen

Module 6 looks at how you – as a leader – can apply your new skills to drive change across your organization. We explore techniques, best practices and cutting edge thinking so you can “make it happen”.

HEC Porte de Champarret Campus

Your base for Module 6

Your base for Module 6

Founded in 1881, HEC Paris has built itself on three core values: academic excellence, a strong sense of community and a commitment to diversity. Thanks to these values, the school has developed into one of the world’s best business schools, ranked #1 European Business School by the Financial Times in 2019.

We’ll be based at in Paris at the Porte de Champerret campus. It is located in north-west Paris near La Défense, the largest business district in Europe.

Key topics and themes

The final module’s courses cover several themes that relate to the managerial challenge of Making it Happen.

Leadership is a key focus of this module. Global leadership development and the concepts and challenges studied throughout the program set the foundation for the Capstone leadership course, which incorporates aspects of leading for change, behavioural strategy and strategy implementation.

Supply Chain Management and Operations are fundamental to enabling businesses to deliver on their value proposition and during the final presentations of the Capstone course, student teams will present the plans to implement the business ideas they developed throughout the program.

Capstone & Leadership

Leadership Development

This is the major theme of Module 6. We explore the behavioural basis of leadership, and will review four issues that every effective leader needs to understand for their own self-development and that of future leaders in their organization.

  1. What makes leaders successful?
  2. What are the flaws/weaknesses/development needs that can impact the effectiveness of leaders?
  3. Under what circumstances will these flaws matter?
  4. What are the factors that set successful/effective leaders apart in the world today?

We look at one organizational aspect of leadership, sometimes called “Leadership in Context” which focuses on the leader’s role as a driver of change in an organization, and we’ll focus on one attribute that gives leaders and their organizations a sustainable competitive advantage.

We will introduce the “Cocktail of Change” and present several of its ingredients through case studies as well as interactive discussions and exercises.

Capstone Module 6: Final Presentation

Module 6 culminates with the final presentations of the Capstone course, where student teams present the plans to implement the business ideas they developed throughout the program. The presentations are made to the Capstone Project Board, made up of the Academic Directors and a number of external members.

Sample courses

We continually innovate the TRIUM program, so each year is set up slightly differently. The following courses are a sample of what you’ll cover in your time in Paris.

Operations and Supply Chain Management

Key topics covered include:

  • How to integrate supply chain management (SCM) to leverage business value creation
  • The building blocks of a supply chain model and how to design it
  • Understand the leverage of the company value model by supply chain
  • The mega trends including operations & supply chain 4.0

Strategic Operations Management: Invisible Leadership

This course covers an approach to leadership based on Process-orientation:  a view that emphasises the management of processes rather than of individuals, events or tasks.

We call the approach Invisible Leadership. It is an aspect of leadership because a disciplined culture of well-run processes has a powerful impact on behaviours, expectations, and the ability to get results. It is invisible because, once processes take root, the leader themselves recede into the background and the leading is done indirectly.

Behavioural Strategy

We know that strategic decisions are crucial and that getting them implemented is even more critical. But both the decision themselves and their implementation are affected by our cognitive limitations as decision makers and by the dynamics of the organizations in which we make them. To understand how, we will explore the cognitive and behavioural biases that affect our strategic decisions.
