Business Life Cycle

EADA Business School
Barcelona, Spain

Nothing stays the same, and as with everything, organisations grow, mature and eventually die. Understanding this process is essentail if you are to build sustainable strategies to keep your organisation alive and healthy. At EADA Business School Barcelona, you will learn how to deal with these challenges. EADA’s residential programme focusses on issues facing all organisations: the business life cycle. Young organisations face very different challenges to mature organisations. Successful firms must be aware of these challenges. Their managers need to understand the processes that surround them, why they emerge, when they will emerge and how best to respond to them.

EADA has a long history of expertise in the area of strategy, working closely with the Spanish business community. Their expertise and business network will be a corner stone in this residential week which analyses the life, death and resurection of a firm.

  • gain insight into how firms manage growth, maturity and decline
  • recognise the stages of firm development and which strategies to employ
  • be able to develop a turn-around strategy
  • understand how to revitalise a declining firm

  • International Negotiation
  • Initial Stage of the Life Cycle
  • Start up and Venture Capital
  • Growth
  • Turnaround Management
