This programme provides managers with the basics of strategic thinking and strategic analysis. It is intended to enhance strategic capabilities by demonstrating the tools and techniques that are commonly employed in strategic analysis and to provide a framework for how to maintain a competitive advantage.
The programme emphasises how organisations can use strategy to enhance impact, value and performance. A general outline of the strategy process will be examined and the forces of strategic analysis will be explained. The programme provides an understanding of the economic motivation that underlies successful strategic decisions and how to perceive products, processes, firms and industries in a strategic manner.
By working through real life case studies you will apply analytical tools and frameworks in a wide variety of situations. You will be tackling issues such as competitive analysis, development of new capabilities, value chain analysis and technology convergence.
