MOB7500 - STRATEGY EXECUTION

STRATEGY EXECUTION

MOB7500 STRATEGY EXECUTION (formerly called Acomplishing Strategy) Strategy Execution helps participants achieve superior results in both managerial and consulting roles. The course exploits the natural and indigenous dynamics that constitute Strategic Management, not just top management direction and the execution of a plan. This powerful perspective reaches deep into how strategic results actually are accomplished in organizations, thus empowering course participants compared to their peers. Since a premium usually devolves to practitioners and consultants who achieve greater timeliness the course helps participants comprehend uncertainty more presciently, pursue initiatives more proactively, and take actions more preemptively. "Next generation" strategy tools drive the course almost entirely using original concepts, innovative exercises, and case studies derived from the instructor's own field research and experience. Professional consulting methods are integral to the course and employed in a team consulting project which applies both course techniques and modern consulting methods to a real situation. This course leverages education and experience in other fields for increased managerial or consulting success. Course content and perspective complements and potentially multiplies careers in consulting, business development, brand management, strategic human resources, market research, information technology management, entrepreneurial ventures, organization development, and similar business activities. This course is unique to Babson and designed to extend our distinctions.
