Strategies are very good for businesses to succeed but in reality, strategies are not enough. There is a gap between business strategy and performance and this can only be bridged by deliberate and methodical actions that blend the strategic plans with the market crescendos.

Business Strategy is the route to the achievement of goals and objectives; it belongs to and is the responsibility of every manager and decision-maker at all levels, be it corporate, strategic business unit or departmental. We must all then understand it, plan it and implement it.

This course emphasizes the importance of taking a wide view or ‘helicopter vision’ and provides analytical and decision-making techniques to look beyond everyday operational concerns and examine what the business as a whole has to do now and what it must do in the future. In these intensive two days, strategy is demystified through a mix of casework and analysis of participants’ own real live business cases
