High Performance Strategy and Leadership Strategy Accreditation Program
The rules of business have changed. Advances in social attitudes and behaviours along with developments in technology have created a demand for a platform based, systemic approach to customer solutions that encompass all aspects of corporate strategy: an integration of markets, differentiation in market activities, continued evolution of transformational capabilities and an agile, dynamic resource base. An introduction to the courses leading to accreditation appear in the video below.
Our courses, designed by the Strategic Management Institute provide solutions to the demands of the new business environment. Incorporating an Action Learning format, PHSANDL conducts external and internal courses in strategy. Based on the books Corporate Strategy (Remastered) I and II, the terminology for our methodological response to better strategy practice is that of Third Wave Strategy. Our 'action learning' approach to teaching strategy calls for the first course (tutorial) to explain the foundations of Third Wave Strategy. The second, a series of hands on workshops consists of structured, open discussions and case study analysis designed especially for the course. In particular the application of Third Wave Strategy practices is explored within the context of the fictitious Security Printing and Packaging Division (SPPD) of a company called Third Wave Industries (T-wI). Supplementing this is references and participant driven experience exercises focused on a real life company; Cadbury chocolates. The education program is available on line or delivered in face to face format depending on client needs. This can be conducted over a period of days, weeks, or months. A certificate of accreditation (Accredited Strategy Practitioner (ASP) is awarded to participants at the conclusion of the two courses.
"This course brought much more structure to what I do – it helped me clarify strategy as a profession. I can now confidently run a strategy review or development process and I find people are learning a lot about strategy from what I am doing. Overall it has put me in an excellent position to approach my new role of Chief Strategy Officer. I can take a lead role in strategy development, even without a background in this industry"
“Having my organisation start the journey towards a more relevant and flexible approach to strategy – particularly in developing a shared understanding of our business, more relevant analysis (beyond SWOT / gap analysis), monitoring the right things (including assumptions and strategic risks)”
