What does strategy look like for contemporary organizations? Whether for profit, not for profit, or blended, all organizations face challenges that demand strategic responses, often in uncertain economic, social, or political contexts. In an age of creativity, innovation, and turbulence, strategy needs to reinvent from the old models of forecasting and planning to newer approaches that are focused on alignment and agility. To deal effectively with these challenges, managers need knowledge and skills in strategic management – taking a 30,000 feet, long-term perspective while being grounded in today’s reality. It is the act of directing efforts at becoming while not losing sight of ‘being’. This course will prepare you to think strategically, formulate strategy (what should our strategy be?” and ‘do’ strategy (What do we need to make this strategy work? You will learn about what is strategy and why you should care about it. You will learn about the shifting landscape of strategy, the influence of technology and globalization, and the impact of organizational strategy on its stakeholders from a systemic perspective including the market, competitors, business environment, company’s structure, mission, strengths and weaknesses while building nimbleness to change. Strategizing requires strong skills in planning, analysis, functional understanding and above all a strategic mindset for creating stakeholder value.
