The Levels

At each level you study subjects across the three pillars:

  • The Operational level :

The operational level has a short-term focus. It covers the implementation of strategy, as well as reporting on the implementation of strategy.

  • The Management level :

The management level has a medium-term focus. It translates the strategy decided at higher levels, and communicates it to lower levels for implementation.

It monitors and reports on the implementation of strategy, and ensures corrective action is taken when required.

  • The Strategic level :

The strategic level has a long term focus. It concentrates on making strategic decisions and providing the context in which those decisions will be implemented.
