FROM OPERATIONAL MANAGER TO STRATEGIC THINKER

Course overview

Managers need to balance their roles between operational management and strategic thinking. As organisations flatten with changing roles, strategic thinking is no longer the responsibility of only senior management. All managers down the line are required to think strategically within the context of their organisation's business.
