The ‘Strategy Camps’ contribute to implement the practical level of the InnoPeer AVM Qualification Programme. They focus on 2 macro-topics: a) the human resources and organizational management; b) the development of new business strategies and models. Moreover, the series of Strategy Camps will aim at working on a broader theme such as the construction and coordination of a transnational value chain.
The main learning goal of the Strategy Camps is teaching how to drive a corporate change for competitiveness by aligning technologies, people and organization. They have to give the participants the possibility of experimenting the processes and the difficulties underlying a corporate change to be implemented at different levels of a business activity.
For this reason, the internationally-known ‘Design Thinking’ was selected as the teaching approach to be adopted in each Strategy Camp.
These training activities are primarily directed to all the people who have a coordination/supervision role within a corporate organization and has to contribute to the organizational decisions of their companies.
Finally, the project foresees the organization of 5 different but interconnected Strategy Camps:
- 2 in Italy (Emilia-Romagna);
- 1 in Germany;
- 1 in Hungary;
- 1 in Poland.
Independently from the duration, each event is subdivided in 2 main parts:
Section A: the participants work on the Mega-Case (D.T2.3.4, D.T2.3.7) – that is, a case reassembling real problems and dynamics within a trans-European manufacturing value chain;
Section B: the participants discuss situations requiring organizational and strategic changes which derive from the direct experience of their organizations.
The connections between the five Strategy Camp enable to work on how to organize a competitive transnational value chain. In this sense, the last Strategy Camp is dedicated to work on how to organize and manage the transnational value chain as much efficiently and effectively as possible. The following picture summarizes the single episodes and the overall plotline.
