“If you don’t have a plan for yourself,
you will be part of someone else’s.”
Good strategy skills are highly prized in corporate leaders. In fact, recent surveys published in the Wall Street Journal, suggest that the most sought-after skill in an executive leader is strategic thinking. It is a skill that can make all the difference for a given organisation whatever its size.
There has been much progress in the art of strategic planning and strategic thinking in the past couple of decades. The methods have helped many successful businesses cope with the ever increasing demands of customers as well as dealing with increased competition in a largely global market.
Fortunately, much like creativity skills, strategic thinking is a skill that can be learned methodically. You can utilise a variety of tools that will help you collect data systematically, analyse them and obtain guidelines to make strategic decisions.
Many of such tools are commonly taught in business schools around the world. In this course, participants will learn about a series of most commonly used strategic planning tools and see how each can help them gain a new perspective on the operation and future of a given business. After each tool has been explored, the delegates will have the opportunity to practice it by going through relevant exercises.
This course is suitable for anyone who is in a leadership role or in a position where decisions must be made about the current state and future of a given endeavour.
Many of these tools are used in conjunction with each other. Delegates will learn how the results of each can be used as inputs for another or use several tools together to make an informed decision.
In this highly practical course participants will learn:
