Strategic Planning and Business Decision Making


This program has been designed to equip executives with the advanced strategic planning and business decision making skills they need to excel as multifaceted leaders in today’s dynamic business world. The first part of the program takes managers and business owners through a strategic planning process that was developed by the program leaders and is used successfully today in over 100 firms. Participants start by examining each of the steps in the strategic planning process, observing how and why other companies have either succeeded or failed in the planning process, and they leave with a strategic planning template that has stood the test of time for mid-sized companies. The second part of the program focuses on how managers can incorporate strategic business decision making in their day-to-day operations. The topics in the business decision making portion of the program were chosen because decision making under uncertainty is the norm rather than an exception in the 21st century. Managers increasingly have to make important business decisions when information is incomplete and the future is murky. This is further complicated by the fact that technology and globalization are ensuring that no source of competitive advantage remains sustainable. The only way firms can continue to grow and prosper is through continuous innovation; however, companies must also constantly revisit their roots and original corporate vision to ensure that the domain of activities in which they participate remains relevant.

Strategic Decision Making


Uncertainty and complexity make many decisions difficult, especially those involving R&D projects, new products and new ventures. This program provides an introduction to decision and risk analysis – the systematic evaluation of decision problems involving uncertainty. Decision and risk analysis provide a framework for analyzing decision problems by breaking them down into more manageable parts and explicitly considering the possible alternatives, available information, and the relevant preferences of the decision makers. We will discuss methods for structuring and modeling decision problems, and apply these methods to a variety of problems that involve risk and uncertainty. For more information, click here.
