The program will provide you with an intensive immersion into the world of Strategy, preparing you to get certified by the Strategy Execution Institute. You will learn that Strategy Execution is much more than having a BSC…it is about managing change.
This course is composed of 5 different modules across 3 days. It will take you through the principles of strategy definition and formulation; you will learn how to identify your current challenges and how to translate them into an actionable strategy. Then you will learn how to translate your strategy using the strategy maps methodology as a key tool, and then it will immerse you in the world of performance management, looking beyond the Balanced Scorecard as a tool, and helping to use it as a comprehensive management framework.
Once you have gained a good understanding of the foundation of strategy execution, you will be walked through more advance concepts such as the strategic alignment; you will learn how to align your organisational units towards your corporate strategy. Concepts like cascading objectives, alignment, rewards and incentives, and sharing resources and costs towards creating more organisational values will be expounded upon.
Finally, you will learn how to define and implement a strong governance mechanism that will help to manage effectively the strategy as a process.
