In the current fast-paced and evolving climate of higher education it is important for institutions to build strategic capability with a different, innovative mind set to identify specific weaknesses and ask 'How do our current arrangements need to change?'
For institutions to be successful in the future it is vitally important for them to look at the driving influences which form their strategy including funding, student expectations, governance, regulation, emerging markets, internationalisation and other stakeholder expectations.
Building Strategic Capability focuses partly on the interaction between the most senior team, and then on the wider leadership management group reporting to them. It is the second in a new series of two-day programmes, with Essentials of Leading Change, that have been designed specifically for delivery in-house to groups of leaders from the same institution. Building Strategic Capability provides a very cost effective way of developing strategic awareness and capability of a leadership group for up to 15 leaders within your institution.
