ML. 6: Formulating Corporate Strategy



“Where is your organisation going and how is it going to get there?” are two fundamental questions that stakeholders ask of any organisation. The purpose of our LISD Certified “Formulating Corporate Strategy” training course is to answer these questions and to develop the skills, knowledge and experience of delegates in three important areas.

The first is strategic planning, including developing organisational strategies; defining the outcomes required and measuring success. The second foundation is to understand and apply the strategic management tools to ensure smooth implementation.

These include understanding the environment, mitigating risk, defining the benefits and creating a roadmap. The third foundation is implementing all the ideas and plans, ensuring that they achieve the original objectives.
