What is this course About?

Strategic leadership occurs in three key places within an organization: (1) At the top, where strategy for a number of business units is formulated over a given time period; (2) In the middle, where top down strategy is translated into a business unit or regional strategy and goals are created; and (3) At a department level, where the business unit strategy goals are translated into a number of individual objectives which are executed. At these three key levels, strategic leadership provides the scope and direction to help drive success for the organization. A major part of this success is derived from effectively managing continuous change through improvements to both people and processes. For that reason, all executives and managers must have the tools necessary for strategy formulation and implementation, and they must be ready to use those tools at a moment’s notice. Managing in an environment of change and uncertainty requires strategic leaders to consistently maintain a sense of direction, while simultaneously building ownership of goals and objectives for action within the teams they are responsible for leading.
