Designing Strategy for Results

Good strategy creates value for customers and captures value for an organisation and its stakeholders. But good strategy does not come from analysis and strategic planning alone. To design a relevant strategy that delivers results, you must learn how to develop insights into your overarching business problem, and the problem’s context. With these insights, you can begin to design strategic business solutions that link execution to results.

Designing Strategy for Results is a two-day course that will teach you how to integrate design, innovation, and execution into strategy. In the course, you will apply strategy frameworks and tools to live case studies and your own organisational scenarios, which will give you a deeper understanding of strategy building.

Additional strategic review option

As a course follow up exercise, you will have the option of a ‘strategic review’ of your own organisation’s strategy with your course facilitator. This review will involve on-the-spot detailed feedback and recommendations.

“This course has given me so many ideas to implement back into the workplace. The facilitator was brilliant and provided so many real-life examples, templates and key strategies. I also enjoyed sharing ideas and interacting with other business professionals.”
– Paul Weeks, Manager Maintenance Delivery, Queensland Urban Utilities
