Strategic Management - Enhancing the Strategic Capacity of Public Organisations
Public sector organisations have to anticipate and respond to substantial challenges, such as long-term economic and financial instability, as well as demographic change or the drive for ecological sustainability. Equally important are the ongoing and increasing demands by citizens in their involvement as co-producers, initiators, voters, taxpayers or clients regarding the transparency, coherence and accessibility of public institutions and especially their ability to deliver high quality goods and services.
Participants of this seminar gain a profound conceptual, instrumental and practical understanding of strategic capacity and the practice of ‘doing strategy’ in a political and administrative context. The seminar enhances participants’ awareness of opportunities for moving beyond business as usual and to act and think more strategically. This is achieved by discussing their experiences and looking at best practices. The course also provides participants with key concepts, hands-on tools, as well as critical reflection skills to evaluate and apply methods in their working environment.
