Strategy education

Education beds down the concepts

There is a saying that "Education costs money, but then so does ignorance." This is never more relevant than in the field of organisational strategy. A gun fired 1mm off track can miss its target by several metres. The consequences of getting strategy wrong can be disastrous in the longer term. Ignorance is simply not an option for any executive.

We believe that with suitable education a manager will begin to develop his or her strategic muscle. Strategy is conveyed through education not training. Thinking strategically, sifting the trivial from the serious, looking beyond the obvious, and getting the big picture right are the foundation principles. Over the years we have worked with Stellenbosch University's School of Public Leadership to develop and present strategy courses to the Public Sector. These have included innovative thinking, strategic management and other related topics.

We are always looking for new partners and academic institutions who share our vision for trained strategists. With our years of practical knowledge and experience let us work together to turn out suitably educated executives.

Note - we do NOT run strategy training courses for individuals. This is the function of the Business Schools.
