  • Overview

    ?Strategy? is concerned with setting the direction of an organization, and determining how to pursue it. It is an art
    in which many scientific techniques may be employed. This course teaches you, and gives you practice in, that
    art. The battle for survival and growth for most organisations - businesses, public services and charities - is
    intensifying. The determination and pursuit of an appropriate strategy is one prerequisite for success.
    Decentralisation means that strategic decisions are made at lower levels in organisations. Specialist advice is only
    acceptable if seen to help the organisation's overall competitive battle. You will learn, and become practised in
    applying a range of approaches commonly used in successful organisations. You will employ others learned from
    previous courses. You will see why organisations are making the decisions they are, and be able to criticize them
    effectively. This will help you to participate sooner in the management process in your future career.
