Course overview 

A strategy is a means to an end, not an end itself. In the 21st century, strategy has become a much more nuanced and interconnected concept than in previous eras, matching the complex and volatile business and social environment of a global economy. Organisations need to set goals and objectives to stay relevant and create value, and it is the task of the leader to help form the strategy to get there. Strategy is a bedrock of leadership, and executing it effectively needs many skills, from effective horizon scanning and market analysis to how and when to make key investment decisions. This course will explain the multiple decisions that form a strategy and bring it together as a coherent whole in a business model.

Strategic leadership demands the ability to navigate an organisation through uncertain times and today’s executives need a skillset that can, ultimately, mean the difference between success and failure. In the Strategic Leadership course, you will learn how to embed long-term organisational development into your thinking, how to navigate complexity and uncertainty and how to demonstrate the behaviours (from horizon scanning to scenario planning) required of truly strategic leaders.
