Description

How to create and communicate more effective strategies.

Overview:
Strategy should be interesting but frequently it’s not. People often dread the invitation to the ‘strategy away day’ and the ensuing debates about ‘what strategy actually means’. They tire at the lengthy SWOT analyses and equally long strategic plans that result.

This one-day course is based on the new book by the presenter Stephen Cummings, Strategy Builder: How to create and communicate more effective strategies. It addresses these common problems with creating strategy and outlines solutions that will result in improved strategic engagement in your organisation.

Who should attend:    
This course is for managers, planners, communicators and anyone whose role is to consider, formulate and consult around organisational, group or business strategy.

Learning objectives:    

  • Gain a clearer and more compelling view of what strategy boils down to
  • Explore simple ways of getting more for less from a strategic analysis
  • Learn how strategy can be more effectively communicated
  • Use the strategy builder process to create a strategy
  • Develop a one-page diagram that outlines the strategy for your organisation or group.

Course format:    
In this interactive course, you will work individually and in groups to develop a strategy for your organisation or group.

The course is limited to a maximum of 16 people, so please enrol early.

You will receive a copy of Strategy Builder: How to create and communicate more effective strategies by Stephen Cummings and Duncan Angwin along with the app www.strategyblocks.com.
