Directing your organisation

Strategic management and leadership deals with processes aimed at setting the organisation’s direction, objectives and priorities in the ever-changing landscape. It also deals with focusing the internal energy and resources to achieve the objectives and at aligning internal and external stakeholders. Strategic management and leadership is about analysis, decision making and planning. This all with the aim to implement strategic plans to realize the desired performance. 

Both private and public organisations need to adapt to numerous outside world developments such as technological developments, economic development, the need for more social responsibility and increased international competition.

“I have been working as a business analyst for the past 3-4 years helping my company understand internal and external business drivers and to make sound decisions. Through participating in this programme, I wanted to improve my business analysis skills, develop strategic thinking and reinforce my leadership abilities in order to contribute best to my company and my community."
Mr. Cyrille Wendyanaba Korentin Zongo (Burkina Faso), participant Strategic Leadership April 2023

The Strategic Leadership programme informs you on the most relevant aspects of effective strategic leadership and offers you the tools and instruments that can help you in developing and implementing effective strategies. The program takes a practice oriented approach providing you with examples from practitioners.

"What I really liked was that the programme was interactive, practice-oriented, and with examples from the real world. Furthermore, it offers tools and instruments that can help any organisation, be it in the private, public or NGO sector, to develop a practical strategy to full-fill its mission.”
Agron Demi  (Kosovo), participant Strategic Leadership programme November 2022
