1 Days 10:00AM - 2:00PM

4 Contact Hours/PDUs

$249.00 (Government Discounts Available - 952.846.4484)

We all know the routine. Leadership teams come together on a periodic basis to formulate strategy, then armed with good intentions, ask their program units, functional teams and project managers to work together to execute the initiatives the leadership team has chosen. Unfortunately, all too often a gap in understanding and performance occurs for those charged with implementing the initiatives flowing from the strategy. This gap invariably translates into unwanted costs, lost opportunities and ultimately failure to execute. When a failure at execution occurs, the lost value resulting is highly significant. This course is for you if your team is struggling with strategy execution. More specifically: Is there a disconnect between your organizations strategy and target customers? Do you lack resource and try to do too much? Do you have too many good ideas and don’t know how to filter them? Does your team lack necessary strategic management competencies? Are you leaders and middle managers not engaged together in execution? Course Pricing: $249
