Overview & Assumptions

  • Egypt has had significant business growth over the past several years. Along with this expansion and opportunity, there has come inflation, increased expectations, and a possible “bubble” in the real estate market. The underlying geopolitical tension and economic uncertainty is set to disrupt good times. Successful, well managed businesses not only take advantage of the good times, but must also have the strategic thinking that is required to deal with future challenges. Recent unexpected world events, economic turmoil, and supplier and customer insecurity, are all indicators of the importance of having a strong, strategic plan with which to weather the storm.
  • In response to this, many organizations have hastily created "mission statements" and declarations of values as part of their strategic plan. Being reactionary and without having commitment from management, these steps can be a recipe for disaster. If you are caught unprepared when major changes happen, customers and employees will often panic, and this will result in suffering for your business.
  • This course is designed to help organizations prepare for an unknown future, and help senior management understand the kind of synergistic and system changes necessary in order to make their organizations effective, productive, and aligned with their strategic plan.
  • This one day course is designed for senior and top management, and those that assist and support their efforts in strategic planning.
  • “What business strategy is all about; what distinguishes it from all other kinds of business planning - is, in a word, competitive advantage.
