Strategic Management Programme

Strategic plans and measures for change are essential for sustained success. They are implemented and communicated via effective leadership and effective change management. In our 8-day strategy programme, we will show you how you can achieve competitive advantages for your business in an integrated and practical way.
4 + 4 Day(s)
Individualised scheduling is possible

Concept

Strategy and leadership are two sides of the same coin - inseparably connected with each other. In strategic management - when properly understood - they are closely interlinked and form the basis for strategic success. Strategy paves the way and teaches you to do the right thing, while leadership deals with objections and ensures that the right things are done properly.

We first present the central aspects of strategic management in this two-part programme. Then we focus on leadership and change management so that you appreciate what constitutes the most sustainable and difficult-to-copy competitive advantage, namely dedicated and motivated staff.

Key Benefits

The “Strategic Management Programme” offers cutting-edge and practical knowledge for results-based strategic management. During the programme, you will deal with the core issues of successful management: strategy and implementation. It is all about the lasting and difficult-to-copy competitive advantage that comes as a result of strategic competence, authentic leadership and flexibility. Make yourself and your company fit for the increasingly competitive global marketplace.
