Overview

The ability to think strategically is key to contributing meaningfully to board discussions on strategy. It is the process by which directors rise above the day-to-day operational activity to gain different perspectives on the dynamics of the changing outside world and so be able to better position themselves to reach their business goals.

This two day course provides practical insight into the processes and techniques for strategic thinking and strategy custodianship at board level.
