About the course

The Strategic Leadership Workshop focuses on strategy and organization in information technology companies. At the outset, the workshop focuses on the questions: “how do IT managers identify and exploit growth opportunities?” and “what challenges arise as IT firms grow and how these can be met?” Answers to these questions depend on the characteristics of the IT firm and of the competitive environment it faces.

In a small IT firm, an initial growth trajectory must be created, and then the IT firm adapts its strategies to the requirements of the larger-scale operation. By contrast, a larger, more established IT firm must sustain growth through revitalizing current businesses, or possibly by expanding into new areas. The challenge in this context is for a manager to design the organization and its managerial processes as a system that can grow successfully.

This workshop emphasizes the key managerial issues that IT companies face in their decision to pursue opportunities as well as strategic decision-making and implementation at the level of top management and business/project leader level. The workshop provides a framework for integrating the concepts of strategy development with the business leaders’/project leaders’ day-to-day activities.
