MasterClass The world is currently characterised by volatility and change. Businesses have downsized and fight for a larger share of declining markets. Government sector organisations and NGOs have had their budgets slashed, and are being forced not only to apply a value-for-money measure to everything they do, but to reconsider their raison d’être. Government ministers are pushing senior public servants to think and speak like business-savvy executives. Boards of directors are looking for executives who can develop a vision, then make tough strategic decisions and implement them. A make-over is not going to cut it: transformation is the order of the day. As Einstein's wise words remind us, "the problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we used to create them".
Strategy, Change & Organisational Transformation
In the 65 years since the Second World War, the world economy has had flat patches, but the scale of the current prolonged volatility and change is unprecedented. Not only businesses, but countries and entire regional economies, are fighting for survival. Established ways of doing business are not enough to survive and thrive in this new era. Working harder with less and being innovative are necessary, but insufficient. Senior executives need cutting edge strategic leadership toolkits to foot it in these challenging times. They need to think, act and communicate strategically, creating and articulating new visions, new business models, new organisational cultures, and new leadership frameworks.
To this end, the Institute for Strategic Leadership is offering its own wise words:
"To Transform Your Organisation, First You Must Transform Your Senior Leadership Team".
This two-day Masterclass sets the context and provides the strategic framework for organisational transformation. It serves as a conduit to the Institute’s residential programmes, which deliver the leadership and management competencies required to reinvent, renew and transform organizations. We are not simply offering best practice, but next practice – new ways to succeed in this era of sustainability. The purpose of this Masterclass is to develop strategic leaders who create and lead flexible, adaptable, organic, people-focused organizations.
