South Africa’s turbulent socio-economic and political climate has had significant disruptive impact on all aspects of organisational life – modes of production, social relations and organisational culture.

One of the ways that organisations can navigate complexity, is through a well-crafted Strategic Plan; a plan that taps into the synergy of key stakeholders and a plan that recognises and is responsive to the VUCA factors of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.

The customised Strategic Planning and Leadership course recently presented by UKZN’s Extended Learning Division, is in direct response to the challenges currently faced by organisations. Core modules include: In depth contextual analysis; Strategic Thinking; Strategic Planning; Strategic Alignment; Leadership; and Plan implementation.

A Strategic plan underpinned by a compelling vision and driven by supportive managers, provides a powerful roadmap for an organisation to achieve its strategic goals and ensure its sustainability.
