Event description

For business leaders with ambitious growth targets, it is not enough to aim for excellence in delivering their product or service to the right market; you must also aim for excellence in planning and executing the growth strategy itself. This focused session will explore your aspirations for the business, the principal goals and the barriers to achieving them. By looking at the challenges from a fresh perspective, we will identify what is needed to scale up operations and the practical steps to address the big issues. Using a graphical planning approach, we will look at the high-level coordination of effort across all areas and how to sequence activity most effectively. The outcome will be that you have a clearer view of what needs to be done, when and by whom to start making real progress towards your strategic goals.

What will I learn?

  • How to set the right objectives.
  • How to create the basis of a cross-functional strategy.
  • How to design an effective delegation and action plan and to monitor progress.

Who should attend?

Business leaders looking to accelerate growth to the next level.
