Strategy Execution Program

Overview:

Introduction

Execution of a strategy is all about being consistent, coordinated and in control. Even the best of strategies is of little use if is cannot be executed effectively. There are many levers that need to be in sync to achieve the desired results. More so, in the current VUCA environment, where strategies must be agile and emergent, pivoting execution to actionise strategy is key.

This program will focus on the key building blocks that provide the foundation of effective strategy execution, and create enabling conditions for the successful implementation of competitive and growth strategies.

The program will have a combination of lectures, cases, group discussions and exercises that will help learn concepts and frameworks related to strategy execution and apply them to 'real-world' business situations. Participants will be continually encouraged and challenged to examine how the implementation aspects discussed in class are relevant and applicable in their own respective businesses and companies.
