Practical crisis management training thanks to solid partnership

The Swiss Armed Forces are crisis management professionals. This is why the Institute for Management Development (IMD) has been working with the Swiss Armed Forces since 2015. 54 participants completed a crisis management training course as part of the Executive Master of Business Administration. As members of the management team in a drill involving a fictitious airline, they had to cope with various crisis situations - usually several at the same time. To accomplish this, they learnt how to apply the leadership skills of the Swiss Armed Forces. What started out as a chaotic mess ended with real added value for the civilian managers.
