Strategic Thinking & Planning (Online Training)


Course Objectives

Almost everything we do in today’s public or private (business) world invokes heavy competitive pressure: attracting foreign investments, “customer” habits change, new competitors appear, factors outside your control could delay your project. But we cannot allow ourselves to be paralyzed; we need to think strategically, plan in ways which are execution-able, and make decision as to what actions to take to minimize disruptions to our plans.
