Strategic Management Master Class

Technology changes and complexity increases faster with each passing year, and sustainability now also plays a key role. The near future is uncertain. How do you prepare an organization for a future you can’t define, while also keeping the operation up and running? How do you achieve both long-term and short-term goals within the same organization? The Strategic Management Master Class can help. Take your strategic thinking to the next level, so you can help create a futureproof organization.

Participant profile

The Strategic Management Master Class is specially designed for driven and experienced professionals and managers. They face challenges in the area of strategic management, and want to contribute to the long-term continuity of their organizations.

Because the dynamics and strategic issues at commercial enterprises differ from those of non-profit and public organizations, we offer two variants of the Strategic Management Master Class. One for participants from for-profit organizations, and one for non-profits. This ensures that new insights and knowledge link up with the day-to-day practice of participants.

Participants in the program for commercial organizations include:

  • Project managers
  • Operations managers
  • Consultants

Participants in the program for non-profits include:

  • Team managers
  • Strategic advisers
  • Directors

Admission requirements

We strive for participant groups full of talent, experience and potential. We therefore impose admission requirements. This allows us to guarantee the highest quality education for you.

We expect:

  • At least 5 years of work experience in a relevant role.
  • Ability to work and think at the higher professional or university level

Take your strategic thinking to the next level

The world around us is changing so fast that strategies can’t look far into the future anymore.

How will the Strategic Management Master Class benefit you?

  • Gain an analytic understanding of strategic processes: know what does and doesn’t work.
  • Know how to create support for new strategic policies.
  • Be able to analyze strategy development and implementation from a variety of angles.
  • Understand how to meet short-term goals with your organization, while also setting the right course for long-term development.

Program design of the Strategic Management Master Class

The 3-day Strategic Management Master Class was developed for managers who want to lead and provide effective direction at the strategic level. You break free from any traditional notions you may have around creating strategies, and learn to think at different strategic levels, for effective strategy development. You also learn how to create support for new strategies in your organization. With the skills and knowledge from this master class, you can help your organization be truly future-oriented.

Program for commercial organizations

Day 1: Basics of strategic management

Look at strategic management through a traditional lens. Learn the different steps in a strategy process, the practical tools you can use and what the process looks like in your organization.

Day 2: Towards an adaptive organization

Day 2 covers current market trends. We discuss strategic adaptivity, the influence of a digital strategy and collaboration in the platform economy.

Day 3: Generating impact

Day 3 is about generating impact. We cover how to create support and strike the right balance between strategy development and implementation. In this exercise, we work through your own real-world challenges.

Program for non-profit organizations

Day 1: Strategic process design

The first day is all about building a strategic process. We provide you with a complete tool set to develop real-world strategies.

Day 2: Institutional embedding and thinking and working in future scenarios

We look at the preconditions for developing your strategy. You also learn how to deal with social institutions. And you get to work on your own future scenarios.

Day 3: Strategic HRM

On day 3, we zoom in on talent management as part of strategic HRM. Plus, you work on your own strategic problem, so you can go home with answers.
