If you’re interested in learning about Strategic Planning & Practice and are in or can get to Perth next week, I am proud to be helping Allan Trench teach a short course for professionals on the subject. It is run through the Australian Institute of Management (Western Australia) and The University of Western Australia Business School.

Our program captures the latest from strategic management theory, delivers hands-on experience of the strategy consulting toolkit and adapts tried and tested strategic frameworks to contemporary and turbulent business conditions. Our interactive and practical approach means you will gain exposure to multiple strategy frameworks and to structured problem-solving, which will help you develop a range of skills critical to planning for the future. We’ll use modern business case histories from diverse industries to illustrate and develop critical thinking and facilitate the strategy development process. We’ll also look at strategies to foster and create innovative business models, giving you insight into how businesses and industries may change in future.

Our program is designed for any person who wants to develop their strategic thinking, planning and doing competencies. It is particularly appropriate for managers who have or are moving into a position of strategic responsibility. The program is applicable to developing strategy within the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
