Strategy Execution: Turning Plans into Performance - Live Online

Strategy Execution: Turning Plans into Performance - Live Online

Performance of an organisation depends not only on having a coherent strategy but also on how managers at different levels understand and implement it. Magnificent visions and grand strategies cannot lead to success without their effective implementation across the length and breadth of the organisation. The real test of a strategy occurs when the rubber meets the road-when visions from the top either diffuse or clash in the middle of the organisation when goals trickling down either unite and focus or divide and distract the performers and when everyday actions either propel the organisation toward its chosen destiny or push it into the wilds of disarray. If coming up with a great strategy is challenging, translating it into fruitful actions is daunting.

This 4-day intensive programme is aimed at helping executives understand the process of formulating and implementing business strategy in various domains and at various levels of the organisation.  It is specifically designed to help managers conceptualise and materialise a business strategy, formulate and translate it into concrete goals and tactics, and drive the whole organisation toward superior performance.

Project Management - Live Online

The Project Management discipline has matured into a sophisticated set of soft and hard management processes, tools and techniques, which enable managers to complete their projects according to not only the customary time, budget and quality constraints but also the successful delivery of intended benefits that contribute to the positioning and profitability of the organisation. However, despite the availability of best practice techniques, most projects globally tend to fail because of poor planning, inadequate allocation of resources, inefficient scheduling of time, and poor understanding of the context or at times merely lack of commitment from senior management.

The 4-day focused online programme on project management is intended to provide executives with positively new insights into the project planning, control and execution processes. Through simulations and multiple hands-on experiential exercises, the participants will master the project portfolio and gain a comprehensive perspective on managing and executing business projects.
