From 2007 until end of 2011, the Center for Collaborative Commerce supported the International Commerce Institute of ECR Europe with the managing of the Progressive Management Programme - the unique Leadership Programme for Executives in the Consumer Goods Industry. Attending the Progressive Management Programme provided exactly the right opportunity to have access to the latest thinking and techniques - for the business leaders of the future.
The overall goal of the Progressive Management Programme was to enable participants to gain a different perspective on the challenges facing the Consumer Goods Business, such that can confidently develop - and implement - innovative and sophisticated strategies for the benefit of their companies, their trading partners and the whole industry.
Each five-day module consisted of sessions led by leading academics in their respective subjects, together with interactive discussions led by captains of the Consumer Goods Business. The modules took place at top business schools such as JBS, London Business School, INSEAD, Wharton and WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management.
