Course description

Strategies & Planning for Growth

With an apparent return to economic growth and recovery, organisations should be examining ways and means by which they can capitalise on and thrive in the improving environment as well as ensuring robustness in the event of a future downturn.

The focus of this course is on identifying growth capability within the organisation itself, given its resources, skills and competencies, along with the potential to achieve growth within both its current markets and potential new markets and customer segments.
