About Course

The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence; it is to act with yesterday’s strategies and logics

In this heavily competitive and equally uncertain business environment, any organization that is committed to succeed has to constantly identify and explore strategic alternatives as well as align resources and ensure implementation. The responsibility to strategically manage and lead a business to success while balancing everyday demands and internal as well as external challenges can prove to be daunting to most leaders who do not have any structured knowledge of what strategic management entails.

This advanced Course in Strategic Management offers this subject as a structured and precisely defined concept that can be implemented in a measurable fashion. The Course teaches structured concepts, methodologies, skills, tools and techniques, which once implemented appropriately and effectively, are likely to ensure that such strategic initiatives achieve the desired outcomes.
