Workshop information

What will you learn?

This whole day workshop is divided into two parts. Part one gives an overview of basic strategic planning and provides a broad understanding of the link between strategy and financial health or wealth creation. It introduces a set of practical tools to monitor the implementation of strategies to ensure their success. There is also an introduction to a committee's and board's role in risk oversight and monitoring. Part two of the course focuses on setting strategy; formulating a strategic plan, the strategic planning process, identifying and achieving strategic goals, monitoring performance, and contributing to an analysis of strategic risk. You will have an opportunity to explore risk for an organisation and learn how to monitor and assess risk using practical tools.
