Learn to use design thinking, strategy and innovation tools to enhance the competitiveness of your organisation.
The strategy and innovation landscape is significantly impacted by the global and local environment of business. External factors and shifts in the political, social, technological, demographic, legal and regulatory environments all have an impact on organisations and their ability to remain relevant, competitive and to grow. These shifts are further accelerated by the “age of disruption” – which the World Economic Forum titles the Fourth Industrial Revolution
This rapidly evolving external environment has resulted in a need to create more agility in key functional areas of the organisation. Organisations need to create a bench of leaders that have the skills to operate in this new normal.
The aim of this programme is to ensure that delegates are exposed to the latest developments and trends in the global and local economy especially with reference to dynamic markets and South Africa. The course also looks at competitiveness and the key levers of competitiveness individually, within the different sectors and nationally. The aim of this session is for delegates to understand the relationship between changes in the business environment and the need of a business to scan, understand and to innovatively respond to the changes.
Understanding the changes that will impact organisations is one element. The programme will use different learning tools to help leaders navigate the complex and rapidly evolving environment.
