Course Overview

The practical Strategic Decision-Making course will thoroughly prepare attendees to create and implement successful strategies, which give organisations a competitive advantage. The concept of a strategy as a plan that guides managerial decisions is central to the training.

This course will also develop problem-solving skills and confidence to make well-thought-out, informed, and comprehensive decisions.

The training will be supported throughout, with thought-provoking, up-to-date case studies about actual companies from various industries.
