Strategy Execution: Turning Plans into Performance

Date:
May 02 - 04, 2019
Application Deadline:
Apr 22, 2019
Venue:
Rausing Executive Development Centre, LUMS

Grand visions and impeccable strategies cannot lead to success without their effective execution and implementation across the length and breadth of the organisation. Real test of how great a strategy is when the rubber meets the road-when visions from the top either diffuse or clash in the middle of the organisation, when goals trickling down either unite and focus or divide and distract the performers, and when everyday actions either propel the organisation toward its chosen destiny or pushes it into the wilds of disarray. If coming up with a great strategy is challenging, translating it into fruitful actions is daunting.

This 3-day intensive programme is aimed at helping executives understand the nuts and bolts of executing the business strategy of their organisation. It is designed to help managers translate organisational strategy into concrete goals and tactics to drive superior performance in their respective domains.

The programme will help participants to:

  • Understand organisational strategy and planning for execution
  • Translate strategies into SMART goals and actionable plans
  • Identify pitfalls and address challenges during strategy execution
  • Develop approaches for effective implementation and monitoring of chosen plans
  • Identify dynamic capabilities to sense and respond to emerging feedback
  • Influence and bring key decision makers on board for implementing strategy

The programme utilises cases, simulations, interactive lectures and a project to primarily focus on:

  • Strategy frameworks and tools relevant in the current strategic environment
  • Strategy maps for articulating and translating strategy in concrete and executable plans
  • Simulation of strategy execution through the Balance Scorecard
  • Issues and challenges in strategy execution
  • Simulation of managing change during strategy execution
The programme is designed for senior corporate executives responsible for implementing strategies for attaining enterprise performance goals such as General Managers, SBU Heads and Strategic Planning Officers.
