Transformational Change and Strategic Leadership

Transformational Change and Strategic Leadership

Why Attend

Companies and industries are experiencing radical change in how they operate and serve their customers. Many of them are undergoing transformational change, adopting new business models quite different from how they originally started.  This is happening within a relatively short period of time, for if they don’t evolve they face obsolescence and a quick market exit. This course prepares leaders and senior management to successfully deal with new business realities introduced by rapid, and in many cases turbulent, market shifts.  It also avails to them the opportunity to explore new alternatives to their existing business models, and equip them with leading strategic and planning tools to prepare their organizations for the next transformational journey.
