Group Level Strategy

Group Level Strategy

What does this course cover?
If you are a line manager or functional expert, overseeing a number of businesses, profit centres or operating units, you are likely to be facing tough challenges. What businesses or markets to invest in? How much to invest in each? How to find new growth opportunities? How much guidance to give the operating units? What functions and decisions to centralize? How to encourage synergy among the operating units?

Group Level Strategy is a unique opportunity for you to stand back and review the decisions you are making. Based on ground-breaking research by Marcus Alexander, Andrew Campbell, Michael Goold and Jo Whitehead, the course is about fundamental choices that affect business performance.

What will I learn?

  • How to decide which businesses and markets to invest in and how to find new areas for growth?
  • The main sources of group-wide added value and subtracted value?
  • How to develop a corporate-level strategy?
  • How to develop a strategy for a group function

Who’s it for?
You currently have a job (or are about to get a job) at corporate or division level in your organisation. Reporting to your level are decentralised operating units or a matrix structure. You may be the line manager responsible or you may be in a group function. You probably have some responsibility for strategy or business development.

How will my business benefit?
