This workshop will teach you:

  • how to define success in terms of aspirational goals at every level of the organisation
  • how to identify and focus on intangible assets and key value drivers to improve performance
  • how to use the three classic customer value propositions to agree your strategic position and align processes and measures
  • differing growth strategies and strategic audit tools - PEST, SWOT, Ansoff’s Matrix, Porter’s growth strategies, etc.
  • shareholder value - what it is, how it is measured and what drives it
  • different categories of business risk and applying these to management and investment decisions
  • hands on case study evaluating business and strategic risk within a business case

The course starts at 9.30am. Lunch and refreshments are included.
