CPD Course: Managing Remote Teams

Developing Winning Strategies

In the world of business, an organisation’s strategy plays a critical role in determining its future. A poorly chosen or implemented strategy can wreak havoc on profits, performance and public confidence; however, an effective strategy can do the opposite!

As a finance professional, you may be directly involved in implementing, monitoring and informing strategic decisions at your organisation – meaning you’re an integral cog in your organisation’s strategic machine. So, how can you help your organisation overcome the challenges of designing a winning strategy?

This course is designed for finance professionals who need an in-depth understanding of strategy in order to support their organisation’s strategic planning effectively.

Provides 36 hours of CPD

  • The key approaches to formulating strategy and the types of businesses they are most appropriate for so that your organisation can adopt the right one to excel
  • The importance of missions and objectives in providing focus to strategic planning to ensure the strategy stays true to the company’s purpose and values
  • To use models like PESTEL, Porter’s Five Forces and SWOT to identify threats and capitalise on opportunities in the external business environment
  • Approaches for analysing your organisation’s current capabilities and offerings to identify areas for improvement and maximise its competitive advantage
  • The importance of scenario planning and forecasting for protecting the strategy against potential pitfalls and staying one step ahead of competitors
  • How the performance of the organisation can be measured to ensure the long-term success of its strategy

As well as covering all the integral aspects of strategy planning, we also provide a workbook in which you can apply what you learn to your own organisation, providing you with an understanding of how it can develop its own winning strategy!

By returning your completed workbook, you can earn a certificate of completion for your completed CPD hours.
