Course Overview

This content and value rich course is suitable for middle and senior managers, directors and leaders and will provide fresh approaches to the ability to think strategically and deliver strategic excellence. Clarity, direction, forward motion and direction are some of the key outcomes which will be achieved through exploration, discussion and debate of a series of approaches to strategic thinking. We’ll use the experience of our delegates to work on real life case study and experience and we’ll conduct relevant exercises to bring concepts and theories to life. Standing back from the daily challenges isn’t easy in a pressured environment and this course will give delegates the tools they need to take a “helicopter view” and see things clearly. Clear and objective vision is an enabler of effective strategic planning and this course will deliver exactly that.
