Master Lectures

I have delivered lectures and workshops to master students, MBAs, manager and executives around the world. The topics usually cover strategy-related topics such as competitive dynamics in turbulent environments, innovation, business models, digital transformation, internationalization, and collaborative networks. My lectures and workshops can be tailored to specific requests and are usually very interactive, and aim to help acquire frameworks and tools that can highly applicable in everyday business life.

Among other lectures, two of the most popular ones are:

Leading in turbulent environments:
Lessons from Formula 1
(Master Lecture)


Leading in increasingly competitive and turbulent market has become a very challenging task even for the biggest, oldest and most prepared organizations. Competitive advantage is short-lived and disruptive innovations like digital transformation, blockchain, big data, Industry 4.0 technologies, and business model innovation can quickly overhaul competitive markets. In such turbulent competition, it is not rare to see giants fall, and emerging organizations quickly achieve dominant positions in the market.

Highly dynamic settings provide a great example to observe and understand such forces, and prepare to face major changes. This seminar uses research-informed insights from the iconic world of Formula 1 as examples to unveil and understand timely competitive dynamics in other industries, while providing tools and framework that better fit today’s business challenges. Formula 1 offers an ideal setting where performance is unmistakably measurable, and every little change can determine success and failure. It forces executive to focus their actions, be analytical, and performance-driven.
