About the course
The imperative for strategic change within an organisation can be triggered by a variety of internal and external factors.
Strategic change can be driven by the deepening of an existing strategy, by diversification into new product categories, geographical expansion, growth initiatives, industry disruption or changing customer preferences. All these can demand substantial changes in a company’s relationships and capabilities and can quickly expose the limitations of an otherwise successful strategy.
This programme, in its new ‘Live Online’ format will help you design strategic renewal and change initiatives that will boost your organisation’s competitiveness and profitability. You will be able to assess how organisational cultures and structures can be both barriers and enablers of change.
Critically, you will learn how to navigate your organisation to build the case for change, sell-in your plan and overcome objections and obstacles.
Over the course of the programme, you will also be given the opportunity to develop your own strategic change and renewal plan for your organisation
