Crafting and Implementing Strategy [One Day Workshop]

Strategy centres on fundamental decisions about what an organisation does, how it does it, and for whom.

Crafting and Implementing Strategy deals with strategy in a practical way, where the ability to read and adapt to a complex environment can lead to vastly improved results.

Crafting and Implementing Strategy goes beyond the half-day Strategy Primer workshop by allowing participants to apply key strategic insights to their own organisations and business units, enabling them to hit the ground running with new strategic tools, insights and action plans.
