Understand, Develop and Implement Strategy – Two Day Programme
Change, whether due to technological advancements, cost and productivity pressures, or competitiveness, is the norm in today’s organisations. In order to remain responsive and competitive, leaders must be skilled to monitor and understand the external and internal environment in which they trade, and know how best to respond. They must also understand how to develop a response plan which is achievable. This combination of strategic thinking and planning skills is explored in a two-day, highly practical programme, designed to equip emerging leaders with tools and techniques to enable them to develop and implement business strategy.
Through a mix of lecture style training, case studies and small working groups, strategic thinking and planning skills are presented, discussed and practiced. Applied to real organisational challenges, participants have the opportunity to explore business critical issues.
