Introduction

All managers need to understand and deal with the major changes that are taking place in markets, technologies, competition and risk - plus the over-arching influence of globalisation. These changes are affecting organisations of all types and sizes.

Strategy and strategic planning are the activities that enable managers to create the successful organisation of the future. To achieve this a strategic planning team must understand how to use all the resources available to the organisation in such a way as to (a) cope with continuous development of the business environment, (b) secure competitive performance through effective analysis and planning, (c) prioritise change, and (d) align and implement the activities that form the strategic plan. All this demonstrates why an understanding of business strategy is vital to all managers in every sector of business.

This training seminar will highlight:
  • Learning how to apply leading-edge thinking in strategic analysis/planning
  • Evaluating the choices faced by any organisation in developing the future
