Do more than just 'manage' - think and act strategically. Gain an in-depth understanding of the most important and effective strategic processes, ideas, tools and techniques, to help you to contribute to your organisation's future. During times of dramatic change and increasing uncertainty, when over 60% of UK businesses are changing their strategies, it is even more important to link your operational responsibilities to the strategic aims of your organisation. The Developing the Strategic Manager course is practical and hands on, and shows how strategy, change management, culture change, and the business plan are all interdependent.
