    Who’s it for?

    Our business strategy course is specifically for the Senior Managers of businesses and organisations that are growing, or are looking to establish and implement plans for change and growth. Attendance with a peer from your organisation where possible is advised (multi-place booking incentives exist too).

    The course is also very useful for Owner Managers keen on developing or realising business value potential.

    What does it cover?

    The course allows delegates to review their own organisation and its environment from different perspectives. Delegates concentrate on building strategy and culture, and examine how strategies in a business can successfully join together. It looks at the effects that these will have on people and teams as they take hold.

    The programme allows delegates to reflect on their own organisations as they go. Working with a peer during the training course is useful, if not essential.

    What will delegates be able to do differently?

    • Implement strategy and change in line with organisational vision
    • Make faster and better decisions and allow others to do the same
    • Get to the truth of where their business is really at
    • Maintain focus through accurately communicated vision, mission and values
    • Understand risk and how others feel about it
    • Take and communicate positive actions, risks and changes
    • Look for competitive edge and the next big thing

    Delegates are seated at small round tables on the business strategy course
