Through the use of relevant case studies infused with current strategy implementation techniques, you will get a broad perspective of strategy formulation and implementation. This program is beneficial to you, even if you have an MBA, as it tackles cross-functional and silo-busting issues related to strategy implementation.
A highlight of the program is the implementation audit. Participants analyze and rate key execution factors in their own organizations. They then present their company’s or organization’s particular strategy challenge to a group of peers for immediate feedback from the group as well as Wharton faculty.
Session topics include:
- Managing Strategic Change
- Strategy, Structure and Organizational Performance
- Integrating Short- and Long-Term Operating Objectives
- Talent Management
- Culture and Strategy Implementation
- Leadership and Execution
Who Attends This Program
Participants in Making Strategy Work are a diverse group. The program is best suited for executives who have some experience in formulating strategy. Individuals moving into a position that requires strategic planning may also benefit because they will have the opportunity to consider the full process of formulating and implementing strategy through this program.
To further leverage the value and impact of Making Strategy Work, we encourage companies to send cross-functional teams of executives to Wharton. We offer group enrollment benefits to companies sending four or more participants to this program.
