I’m proud to be teaching on the Executive Education ‘Strategic Planning and Practice’ course run by the University of Western Australia (UWA) Business School and the Australian Institute of Management Western Australia (AIM WA). The course is headed up by Allan Trench and runs over two days on 11-12 July, at the AIM WA in Perth. It costs A$2,420 for AIM members and A$2,860 for non-members.

This experiential strategy program is targeted at leaders from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors who want to enhance their strategic thinking skills and business problem solving abilities.

The program captures the latest thinking 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. This interactive and practical program allows participants to gain exposure to multiple strategy frameworks and to structured problem-solving in order to develop a range of skills critical to planning for the future. Modern business case histories from diverse industries are used to illustrate and develop critical thinking and facilitate the strategy development process. Strategies to foster and create innovative business models are illustrated – with participants gaining experience of how businesses and industries may change in future.

This 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.

The program covers what is strategy and why it matters, the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of strategy, business model innovation for turbulent times, structured problem-solving as a key strategy tool, strategy frameworks and principles, strategy business cases and strategy in action.
