Introduction

This seminar gives you a robust practical framework to formulate, develop, and implement plans for achieving strategic goals and realising your vision. It shows you how to break out of responding to day-to-day problems so you can build a team or organization that is more proactive and resilient to change.

The comprehensive, step-by-step method shows you how to develop the right strategy then translate it into a business plan that provides the foundation for achieving strategic alignment of operational plans and individual objectives.

This seminar highlights:

  • The difference between good and bad strategies
  • Improving the performance of an existing company/division/department when faced with major change in business conditions
  • Balancing financial and non-financial objectives and goals
  • Growing an existing company/division/department
  • Aligning all activity to focus on the strategic goals and not be distracted by less important issues

Objectives

The central objectives of this course are as follows:

  • Learn how to develop a plan to achieve the goals you want for you and your organization (company/division/business unit/team)
  • Develop strategic thinking in your organization
  • Develop a strategic plan for your organization and for yourself
  • Identify the principles and mechanisms that drive successful implementation
  • Develop measurable action plans that result in success
  • Identify, measure, and track critical success factors

Training Methodology

This highly interactive training course encourages delegate participation through a combination of short lectures, large and small group discussion, practical exercises, case studies, and breakout sessions to practice new skills. The comprehensive course manual has been designed to be practical, and easy to use.

  • Greater confidence in understanding the potential strategic impact of current managerial roles
  • A better appreciation of the systemic nature of major business decisions
  • Understanding how to change from reacting to problems to making things happen the way you want for you and your organization
  • Knowing how to simplify—manage 3-5 critical things instead of managing 30-50 un-prioritised tasks
  • Developing and implementing long, medium, and short-term plans
