Strategic Management Training

Strategic Management Training

Most of Innesskirk's Management development programs start with Strategic Management Training. We provide an overview of the meaning and benefits of strategy for managers. Most managers are so pre-occupied with operational tasks that they lack strategic insights. Refreshing general strategy and specific corporate strategy is the first step to applying and facilitating strategic initiatives by managers.

A Practical Approach
Most strategic workshops lack the application within the organization and end up being very theoretical in nature. Our approach is different, we deliver a strategic thinking and planning overview which is applied to each participant's area of influence within the organization. This is done through a quick overall corporate strategic review, which includes the organizations mission and internal branding overview to understand managements understanding of the current strategy and long term planning efforts. 

Before the Workshop
The pre-workshop questionnaire uncovers missing elements and creates awareness of current strategic gaps within the organization. Strategic thinking is further encouraged in small group exercises using practical hands-on analysis methods like SWOT, McKinsey's 7S model, Scenario Planning and Strategic Alignment techniques.

Applied Strategy
Through a Strategic Challenge Simulation delegate managers compare best practise and current company strategic processes as well as their role in the process. The practical implications of the organization's strategy for managers, their strategic responsibilities, skills, habits and organizational behavior. Post simulation discussions will include current and best practice methods and benchmarking tools, common pitfalls of company strategy initiatives, a review of examples, and essential elements required in any strategic project.

Consolidation and Implementation
Delegates discuss how they would apply the outcomes of the completed strategic analysis to their own environment using our unique iIMPACT™ projects and online and face-to-face coaching sessions.

The overall strategic analysis workshop is enlightening, fun, highly interactive and provides “real world” practical techniques and methods that you can use back in the office. Our iIMPACT™ methodology guarantees that you benefit fully from the newly acquired techniques, skills and knowledge.
