Harness the Power of Strategic Management for Effective Decision Making
Strategic management is no longer the prerogative of top management or corporate headquarter. Middle-level managers are playing a crucial role in the process of organizational decision making. Though they heavily contribute to the strategic decision-making process, which defines the path and the pace of the organization, many middle-level managers are not fully aware of the various tools and frameworks of strategic management. Thinking primarily at the operational level often binds organizations into silos of partitioned thought. A strategic perspective enables liberation from these silos and promotes the achievement of goals at the organization level. In recent years, there has been much discussion on organizational competencies and organizational resources as the starting point of strategy. Hence, this program intends to explore the confluence of organization-level resources and competencies with industry-level opportunities and challenges associated with today’s rapidly evolving globalized world.
The program specifically aims to enable the participants:
• To understand the tools and frameworks in strategic management
• To analyze organizational resources and competencies
• To appreciate the difference between business-level and corporate-level strategies
• To explore the importance of strategic innovation and strategic transformation
• To understand the relevance of macro-level factors such as globalization or policy reforms for pursuing sustainable growth strategies
