Master-class “The World of Strategy. A Deep Dive Into Diamond Business”

How firms can gain and sustain competitive advantage?

Strategy is about creating competitive differentiation, but what does this mean when the environment is changing rapidly and when inertial tendencies are likely features of (large) organizations? We are interested in how companies and organizations can sustain their health over time. To fully understand this challenge, we need to combine a market perspective with an organizational perspective on strategy. 

The world of diamonds is fascinating. Dominated by a few large players (like ALROSA) upstream in the value chain to a myriad of companies more mid and downstream, the industry is under pressure not only from within but also from the outside.

In course of the master class we show what sustainable business means for this industry, how the industry is grappling with synthetics and what a way forward could be.

The diamond industry offers a nice reflection of the different modules of our EMBA program. So, WE END WITH A NUMBER OF MANAGERIAL TAKEAWAYS FOR ALL COMPANIES.
