Effective Strategy & Leadership in the Public Sector

Successful organisations do not happen by accident; they have a strategy, but a strategic plan is only a small part of the story. Successful strategy involves creating a vision that all employees buy into, this involves a series of initiatives that leverage the core competencies of the organisation and build new competencies as required. Significantly it is leadership that ensures that these structures, systems and processes are able to effectively support the vision of the organisation.

Why this course is for you

The public sector provides unique challenges in respect of strategy development and given this distinctive operating environment, this course is essential to understanding and making appropriate strategic choices considering the internal and external environmental constraints present.

As the overarching direction within many public sector organisations is often set by parties outside of the traditional organisational hierarchical system, much of the focus of this course is upon turning this direction into a valuable and deliverable operational strategy.
