This course is designed to provide an advanced discussion forum for managers who have been exposed to strategic thinking either in practice or in other courses. The course is divided into three parts. The first deals with the functions that executives are faced with in today’s large and complex firms. The second goes over the important strategy analyses that are necessary in all strategic management decisions. Finally, the third part deals with strategy in situations of complexity, when both objectives and cause-effect relationships are unclear. The course is taught through the case method. To facilitate learning, cases (written or filmed) adapted to the participants’ realities are generally used.
