Strategy Matters:
Turning Ideas into Actions
December 7, 2018 with Dr. Thomas Lawton
In this seminar we lay out an integrated and dynamic process for thinking about and doing strategic management. Adopting a strategic approach renders managers better able to make decisions during unstable and uncertain periods and more able to deal with complexity, diversity and varied sources of information both inside and outside their organisations.  The underpinning principle is the balance between change and consistency. To achieve breakthroughs in performance, managers need to recognise and maximise where excellence exists inside the organisation, while at the same time identifying and seizing opportunities outside.
