About This Course

This four-week program is completed entirely at your own pace. Designed for mid-level managers who are responsible for executing (but not setting) strategy, participants will build skills across four different dimensions and apply them in a simulated business experience.

The program is organized around the Insight Experience Cycle of Strategy Execution Model™, which includes five stages. Considering the stages separately allows a manager to clarify thinking, recognize opportunities and risks, and behave proactively in the interests of the larger organization.
