About the course

The field of strategic management deals with, the major intended and emergent initiatives, taken by the general managers on behalf of owners, that involve utilization of some resources to enhance the performance of firms in their external environment. Performance, within the conversation of strategic management, deals with superior returns on investments. Superior returns are measured with respect to the firm’s (i) past performance, (ii) competitors and (iii) benchmark indices. The issue of superior returns is addressed by raising two critical managerial questions namely,

• How and why do some firms outperform others? • How do they sustain such performance?

The above questions shall be reviewed by invoking the various concepts from the functional disciplines of management and integrating them into a coherent whole. A systemic approach, involving internal and external environmental analysis, identifying opportunities, formulating strategies and executing them, is adopted. This course also introduces Business Strategy and Competitive Strategy. Specifically, this course deals with corporate strategy, influencers and outcomes of corporate strategy, leadership and corporate governance.
