A 2 day module held at venues across the UK.

The Advanced Strategic Planning for Directors course reflects current practice in the Directors’ role in strategy and allows delegates to develop and expand their understanding in the application of strategic deployment in the workplace.

This two-day course outlines the current thinking of the role of the Director and Board in the formation and execution of organisational strategy. The module will give delegates an essential understanding of the key role of Directors in strategic direction, mapping the strategic process, and directing implementation. Packed with examples of best practice, the course will explore how to create, develop and deliver organisation wide strategies that achieve their objectives and deliver real value for the company. The module will give Directors a better understanding of the strategic process and a renewed confidence around the formation, development and implementation of company strategies.

Crucially, the programme provides clarity and support to Directors around their role and responsibilities on strategic thinking, strategic decision making, strategic planning, and strategy execution.

You will be encouraged to consider your own role, Board and organisation, bringing relevant issues and challenges to share, discuss and develop solutions. This two-day programme will give you the essential knowledge, skills and confidence to improve your performance as a Director and that of the Board’s.
