In order for public organisations and private corporations to achieve an effective execution of their strategy, all their pieces need to be aligned. To maximize this alignment, companies need to work on different levels. Through vertical alignment, the top objectives are cascaded all the way through business and support units towards individual employees. By working through horizontal alignment, business units maximize synchronisation with each other and even more with external stakeholders to gain the necessary synergies for effective strategy execution.
You will learn how to align these organisational units through grasping concepts such as the Balanced Scorecard and the Strategy Maps, both vertically and horizontally, and creating efficiencies within the system that were once unnoticed. Concepts like cascading objectives, alignment, rewards and incentives, and sharing resources and costs towards creating more organisational values will be expounded upon.
This is an “action learning” course. You will not be listening to a one-to-many presentation. You will be actively engaged in the course. You will be asked to work on your own challenges, using your own examples and your own materials. Your course facilitators will provide you with the knowledge required to do the work. They will help and guide you through the process. Our expectations of you are to roll up your sleeves and get hands-on the problem.
