Strategic management is a process of making and implementing strategic decisions concerning how to continuously improve organisational performance and impact in an ever changing environment. A coherent strategy provides an organisation with clear direction as a basis for important ongoing decision-making concerning the use of available resources. Strategic and implementation planning helps an organisation to formulate its strategy for how best to achieve its aims and the steps necessary to get there.
This introductory course focuses on the strategic management of non-profit organisations and its importance to the success of an organisation. It provides you with core knowledge, practical skills and tools to encourage strategic management and to prepare you to undertake strategic and implementation planning in your organisation.
