Participants develop their capabilities in making and executing effective strategic decisions and acquire deep insight into how to manage innovation and lead change.
Specifically, the programme will:
- Equip the participant with the tools to assess and address the strategic challenges that face their organisation;
Provide learning strategies for turning resistance into co-operation and for extracting maximum benefit from new opportunities;
- Improve strategic decision-making capability in addition to the ability to re-think strategy in the light of new economic and business realities;
- Build up an in-depth understanding of the strategic decisions that individuals need to make to support and apply innovation.
This programme is delivered over a series of 6 two-day workshops within a 10–month period. Workshops are held on Fridays and Saturdays to minimise interference with busy work schedules. The programme structure is designed in order to facilitate busy work/lifestyles and to assist participants integrating study into their working lives while enhancing their contribution as a member of the management team.
Assessments and Workload
This programme involves no examinations – instead the emphasis throughout is on the practical application of knowledge to benefit you and your organisation. Assessment workload is spread across the duration of the programme to allow you to combine learning with work and life demands. In order to accelerate learning, between modules participants are expected to complete assigned reading from texts, cases and articles. All continuous assessment is completed by participants either individually or in groups and this is set out in the study guide for each module. Some modules require pre-coursework in addition to the post-coursework which is set for each taught modules.
