Who should attend
This program is for mid- to senior-level managers who lead strategic decisions and are responsible for implementing them fast, efficiently and with impact.
About the course
For managers wanting to learn a set of powerful tools and organizational frameworks to successfully turn strategy into action.
Hult Ashridge research indicates that 70% of strategic plans fail to be executed, most commonly due to cultural blocks. In this program, participants will learn how to implement strategy and understand what the blockers are likely to be.
The program uses real projects participants need to implement. Through analyzing famous cinematic battle scenes and modern relevant case studies—among other methods—participants will learn the link behind behavioral influence and strategy translation. They will then focus on translating goals into actions, engaging people, exercising discipline, adapting and evolving.

- Introduce the disciplines and processes that ensure projects are completed
- Identify where resistance to execution exists and apply techniques to overcome it and secure support
