About the course
Many companies struggle to translate strategy into results. They lack the tools to implement strategy in turbulent and emerging markets characterised by uncertainties.
This three-day programme introduces a framework that enables participants appreciate the different drivers of execution and how they interact. Before the programme, each participant is to complete a pre-arrival exercise that will help describe the specific strategy execution challenge the organisation is facing.
At the end of the programme, each participant will develop an action plan that will enable them implement their organisational, divisional or departmental strategy effectively. The result is an effective structure and systematic process for improving the implementation of strategy in your organisation.
In class, we highlight results of extensive research conducted on the various strategy implementation challenges that emerging market organisations face through case studies, experiential exercises, and discussions. In addition, distinguished executives will also share their experiences in implementing strategy in their different organisations.
At the end of the programme, you will take away a powerful blend of theory and real-world context to apply to your challenges.
