·           OBJECTIVES:


Strategy execution is the prerequisite to breakthrough results.  However, executing strategy is challenging, and many organizations fail to execute their strategy because they lack the skills and capabilities for successful strategy execution.  Through structured methodologies and proven approaches, this workshop presents an approach that will extend the concept of the “Balanced Scorecard” to a fully Strategic Management Process that links strategies with performance management and action plan using Balanced Scorecards (BSC).

The workshop will answer the following questions:


·        How can we translate stakeholder (capital market) expectations into business strategy?

·        How can we better operationalize strategy internally? How can we monitor and manage performance?


One main objective of this workshop is to align and link strategy with business execution. The following linkages can achieve:


·        Link between strategic planning and operational target setting

·        Resource allocation according to strategic and operational targets

·        Link of strategic initiatives into the corporate resource allocation process
