Comment/Description

This course focuses on some of the important current issues of regions in terms of strategic management. Where in the private sector good strategic management is often well governed, in the public sector good strategic management sometimes is undeveloped or even missing. Especially, when it comes to strategic management of places, policy makers in cities, regions or states are asking for strategic management consulting to improve the performance of a place. In the case study seminar, students jump in the role of policy makers/policy consultants ("strategic managers of places") and use strategic management tools to analyze regional performance and improve current policies. All case studies are focusing on specific cities/regions. Besides improving strategic management skills, participants will also learn more about the importance of culture and context for managing in the public sector. The course uses a combination of readings, lectures, case studies, and exercises to provide opportunities to apply classroom material to real world situations.
