Course Description


This GLOMACS Training Course “Strategy and Strategic Planning” will enable you to make a major contribution to creating tomorrow’s organisation out of today’s organisation.  Strategy and strategic planning are the vital activities that enable all managers to (a) anticipate major change in the structure and potential of their business and, (b) make a significant personal contribution to the processes of business development. 

All managers need to understand and deal with the major changes that are taking place in markets, technologies, competition, business models and risk management - plus the overarching influence of globalisation. To achieve this strategic planning team must take into account how to use all available resources in order to chart a course that will enable an organisation to develop strongly and deliver outstanding financial and other results, often in rapidly changing business conditions.
