Course Overview

An organization without a strategy is like a ship without a rudder. How can organizations continue to provide exceptional value to stakeholders and customers if they are not clear on where they are heading and how they will get there? The answer is they can't. This is where the role of strategy becomes essential. The strategy is about setting ambitious goals, understanding the surrounding current and future environment and providing a sense of direction for the organization.

In this course, we will cover the 7 steps of the strategy management process, starting with the 'thinking' components of strategy, moving into the ‘analysis’ and 'planning' components and ending with 'execution'. At the end of the course, participants will be able to implement or improve the strategic process at their organizations to reach their vision and achieve their mission.

 

Course Methodology

The course enables participants to practice the development of each of the strategic management steps. They will act as organizational managers in developing each strategic component for an organization of their choosing.

The most important strategy tools and frameworks will be discussed and put into practical use during the course.

 

Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply strategic thinking to analyze their current environment and determine their organizational ambition
  • Employ the strategic management process to best achieve the desired ambition
  • Assess and choose strategies that create a sustainable competitive advantage for the organization
  • Determine strategic objectives, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and 'SMART' targets for the organization
  • Convert strategic plans to operating plans through creating strategic initiatives and sequencing activities
  • Participate in the performance management cycle to ensure proper execution of chosen strategies
