Can You See it Coming?
In today’s disruptive and fast-changing world, can you seriously imagine any successful company that does not regularly revisit and review its strategy? This workshop is about your role as a company director in relation to strategy. We explore what models you can use and what questions you need to ask.

The workshop will address the following topics:

Where does strategy sit in terms of directors’ duties?
What are the distinctive roles of executive and non-executive directors?
Exploring links between leadership, vision, values and strategic direction.
Models you can use in formulating strategy.
The who, how and when of reviewing company strategy.

Models of Practice

In the workshop we will introduce you to a range of models to help you develop a credible strategy. We will look at: Blue Ocean Strategy, Balanced Scorecard, Scenario Planning, Social Capital, PEST & SWOT, Portfolio Planning Grids.

The challenge for you is to take these models and apply them in your situation.

Walk Away With a Plan for a Plan

We will guide you through a set of practical learning exercises, use examples and share ideas to give you the capability to build a meaningful and responsive strategic planning process. You will walk away with a Personal Action Plan and a warning, to watch out for disruption.
