Loading Information

Good strategy design is at the core of sustained business success. But developing an effective strategy has become an increasingly difficult process as seismic shifts in competition, globalisation and technology have rendered many traditional strategic frameworks irrelevant. Mastering Strategy Design focuses on the content and process of strategy design formulation in the rapidly changing global business landscape. 

Over seven evening sessions and one full day workshop, participants will be exposed latest thinking, concepts and analytical tools in corporate and business strategy. With an emphasis on practical application, the programme will guide the participants through a pragmatic strategy design formulation process based on forward-looking practices of today’s top performing companies. Participants will apply the learning in a structured set of sessions to their business realities, and practice developing a strategic plan for their organisation .

The intent of this programme is to leverage the collective wisdom and experience that participants bring to class to enrich the learning of each participant. After each session of the class, you will apply the learning to your organisation to develop an aspect of strategy appropriate to your business. On the last day you will develop the draft strategy design for your organisation. This course requires substantive work on your behalf in applying the concepts to your organisation.
