About the course

Senior executives in corporations regularly take strategic actions. The situations executives encounter are sometimes well structured, with competitive moves and quantitative payoffs that can be reasonably anticipated and evaluated. The task of the executives then boils down to effectively define and analyze various situations using such objective and quantitative tools. However, many business situations are not so unambiguous. It is said that there are no absolute truths in business. Any problem may have multiple solutions. The task of a strategic leader is to attempt to identify the optimal solution. For this purpose a more qualitative and yet rigorous approach is required. This training has been designed specifically to equip senior executives with quantitative tools and qualitative perspective so that they can make strategic decisions in different types of situations.
