ISMA-Kellogg Senior Executive Program: Leading Through Crises

 

19-21 April and 26-28 April 2021
8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT, daily
Held VIRTUALLY, via Zoom

Presented by the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

 

Every organization is vulnerable to crises, and for multinational corporations they can come from unexpected fronts and in many different forms. In times of crisis, organizations need experienced and prepared leaders. Chief Security Officers and senior security executives should be ready and well positioned to support the C-suite and the board to prepare for, prevent, and manage crises, and to lead the organization through these challenging situations.

This virtual two-week program is developed specifically for senior security executives by ISMA and Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Using case studies, lectures, and simulations, this program helps senior security leaders develop their leadership expertise so they can position themselves as a trusted partner to the company’s senior management and corporate board in times of crisis.

Participants will learn to:
  • identify and prioritize strategic risks within both domestic and global business environments;
  • see and position themselves to best support the C-Suite and the board to prepare and prevent crises as well as to lead in the event of crisis;
  • use tools and frameworks to strengthen analytical and strategic decision‑making skills in key management areas;
  • formulate, communicate and execute recommendations and decisions effectively;
  • create cross-functional teams and leverage training, education and feedback to improve team performance.

Curriculum and Course Design

Originally designed as a 3-day immersive experience on campus, the course is now being offered virtually over the course of two weeks. Attendees will be required to participate in 4 hours of real-time online work per day, 3 days per week over two weeks, including live instructor-led learning, group exercises, and virtual networking opportunities. Attendees must be available 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT daily on each scheduled course date. This is a synchronous course, meaning the learning takes place real-time and is not "learn at your own pace."  The Kellogg School of Management has successfully transitioned all its business programs to distance learning formats and attendees will still receive the same world-class, immersive education associated with this top 5 business school.

A centerpiece of the curriculum is peer-developed cases and frameworks, written specifically for this course. The cases are curated from real-world issues facing senior security executives and are designed to help attendees hone their leadership skills while working through possible approaches and solutions to guide their organization’s crisis response. The cases are supplemented by lectures, exercises, and simulations. Throughout the program, attendees will use tools and frameworks to strengthen their analytical and strategic decision-making skills in key management areas.

Upon completion of the program participants will receive a certificate through the office of the Dean, Kellogg School of Management, Executive Education. This prestigious certificate will be most suitable for framing and display.

ISMA-Kellogg Partnership

The ISMA-Kellogg partnership began in 2008 and has since served more than 600 attendees. The program has always had a focus of helping develop a strategic focus among security professionals. Along the way Kellogg and ISMA participants have developed several new cases and frameworks for managing strategic crises. These cases and frameworks not only serve as centerpieces for the ISMA program but they have also been integrated into Kellogg classes on the topic of crisis management. Kellogg is one of the few business schools that requires a class in crisis management for full-time, part-time and executive MBA programs. Consequently, the cases and frameworks developed with ISMA members have impacted literally thousands of Kellogg MBA students and are now taught by as many as 5 different full-time faculty at Kellogg. It is fair to say that the ISMA-Kellogg partnership is not only helping prepare the next generation of security managers it is also helping the next generation of senior business executives be prepared to be better partners with security managers as well.

ISMA offers two executive education courses for senior security leaders:
•    ISMA-Kellogg Course: Understanding Security as a Business Asset
•    ISMA-Kellogg Senior Executive Program: Leading Through Crises

Both courses offer security leaders and their teams an opportunity to develop business acumen in order to better integrate security into the business and position security as a thought leader and trusted partner. The curriculum in these two courses complements each other; the Crisis Management course builds upon the Strategic Leadership course. However, participants make take the courses in whichever order they choose
