Explore a range of strategic concepts, theories and current issues in Strategic Management.
Short Course on Strategic Management
The course ‘Strategic Management’ has been designed to help you explore a range of strategic issues in depth by introducing you to concepts, theories and current issues in Strategic Management.
The course content is designed under 04 lessons which helps you understand the principles of Strategic Business Management and models for strategy development, the process of identifying organisational goals and values, conducting a critical analysis of the impact of environmental factors in organisations and identifying the key forces that represent both opportunities and threats to organisations.
You are not required to demonstrate previous experience or knowledge on strategic management in organisations to succeed as the course has been developed for students with relatively little previous experience on strategic management. As future managers it is important to work on novel and hypothetical scenarios and know, how to adopt various strategic management approaches, strategies and methods to evaluate practices for high performance and effective decision making. Such frames the overall aim of this short course on Strategic Management.
However, remember to build dialogue with your online class mates and share your ideas and understanding of each of the lessons and topics. Please also ensure that each week you complete the assigned tasks and activities to reap the full benefit of this course.
Finally, the summative assessment will consolidate your learning over the 04 weeks which requires you to attempt a task covering the key learning outcomes of this course and submit a report worth 2,000 words.
