Strategic thinking involves diagnostics, alternatives and choices

Develop an ambitious, but realistic strategy for your unit or organization, by starting with internal and external diagnostics to see what is happening to your competitive advantage. The program is unique in the range of strategic alternatives you will be exposed to: performance moves, generic business models, and strategic innovation perspectives. You also will identify capability and resource gaps that have to be closed.

By developing your ability to judge value-creating potential and risk, you will think more clearly about making strategic choices, developing viable new operating models and innovating to turn tech and other threats into opportunities.

Supported by your executive coach, you will walk away with a tailor-made roadmap that directs your business or organization towards strategic initiatives that are both ambitious and realistic.
