This unit will help the participant learn, assess and apply coaching frameworks and the processes involved in their own organisational context enhancing the experiential learning activity for the participant.

Strategy Theme


Reacting to organisational environments that evolve continuously requires managers to work with constant change and uncertainty. One avenue of responding to the complexity of such environments is to adopt a scenario planning approach as part of strategy building.

Organisational strategy can be better constructed and executed by reflecting on multi-disciplinary input that result in new trends, driving forces and macro events. This module enables managers to assess externalities, develop, apply and evaluate scenarios to the organisation’s strategic context.

Building on techniques learned in the leadership theme, this module covers the design and implementation of strategy, both at the organisation and business unit levels. It also presents the tools and methodologies for industry and competition analysis as well as techniques to tap uncontested markets to deliver fast growth and superior profitability.

Emphasis is placed on the importance of execution-centred strategic planning and the management of business processes, as well as on change management and overcoming the challenges of strategy implementation.

When business, societal and environmental realities evolve, the strategic value creation, communication and dissemination process also undergoes change. This module critically assesses these new realities in the context of a virtualised and globalised business world and evaluates its impacts on markets and consumers.

The module will provide an analytical framework around which business problems can be tackled and strategic decisions made to better communicate and disseminate processes while enhancing strategic value.

Innovation Theme
