Strategy Execution: Theory & Practice (MAN50)


    Having a strategy is not only vital for corporations; each business unit, each department, each team should have its own strategy aligned with the corporate one. Though having the strategy alone doesn’t mean much. Even the best strategy will not come to life by itself magically. You need to EXECUTE your strategy.
    • In this 2-day course participants will understand how to successfully plan and execute their strategies and will learn the methods & tools needed during their execution journey with real life examples.
    • The Strategy-in-Action workshop is a 2-day “add on” designed to work on team’s own Strategy Execution plan parallel to the training flow.

    Duration: 2 days
    Instructor: Kubilay Balci
