Designing Strategy for Results course

Professional Using Chart To Design Business Strategy

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 innovative and 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.

If you wish to take advantage of this follow up opportunity, you will be asked to apply the course concepts in collaboration with your management team and must be prepared to present your ‘strategy’ to your facilitator. Discuss arrangements, including the fee for this follow up exercise, with a member of the Client Services Team via execed@business.uq.edu.au
