About the course

The face of business is changing rapidly – and tried and tested approaches aren’t always fit for purpose. So we need to create strategy differently. But how? When you take the Strategy Excellence Programme at Vlerick, you’ll get the latest thinking, as well as one-to-one coaching from world-class strategy experts. They’ll help you to evaluate your approach and hone it to have real impact, preparing your organisation for tomorrow’s challenges.

Throughout the programme, you’ll learn the theory and you’ll have opportunities to put your learning into practice. When you leave, you’ll have strategic plans that you can put into action with confidence.


What is the added value of following the programme 'Strategy Excellence'?

  • Understand the strategic context of your organisation
  • Evaluate the quality of your strategy and develop action plans to improve it
  • Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your approach to strategy implementation
  • Identify the actions and activities required throughout your organisation to execute your strategy
  • Understand the change capabilities you will need for your strategy to succeed


The 'Strategy Excellence Programme' consists of 3 key components:

  • How strategy can make you stand out from the crowd: Winning with strategy
  • How to excel and compete with others: Successful strategy execution
  • Connecting the dots: individual coaching based on your specific strategic challenges

Working with your faculty coach, you will set goals and find the best opportunities to bring your learnings to your own organization.
