    Skills for Successful Organizational strategy Planning

    Effective strategy formulation skills are highly prized in corporate leaders. The ability to develop operational business strategies and then take those business strategies from plan to action (or to rethink them on short notice) sets true leaders apart from their peers. Forward-looking strategy formulation can make the difference between a profitable business and one that stagnates. 

    This program will provide you with the skills for developing a clear understanding of your organization's current and desired state, its operations and market position. Learn how to develop a mission and vision statement for your company, after gathering the information that influences your business, from operational data to assessing internal and external factors.
