About Programme

Achieving the vision and objectives of a company demands a strategic orchestra be played in concert between internal and external stakeholders. Businesses often encounter situations where their strategy does not fit in well with the reality they operate in and therefor fails to achieve the desired outcome. The problem with their inability to deliver on these strategic goals usually lies in the execution.

This advanced programme equips you with the insights and tools to bridge that difficult gap between the fancy formulation of strategy and its real-life execution. It enables you to identify hidden traps, balance the rational with the emotional and build the internal capability to continue implementing strategy successfully across diverse cultures. The programme will engage you and your peers in case discussions within a specific framework in order to gain more experience in strategy implementation.
