Increasingly, strategic management is becoming crucial in the world of business and in the ever- uncertain environment and fast-changing world in which we live and work. The APSMCL programme is designed for Corporate Leaders who wish to translate Strategy into value driven decisions and pave the way for sustainable growth. Strategic management is an essential component of businesses. It refers to the formulation and implementation of the goals and initiatives involved in the strategies, laid out by the stakeholders of an organization. Current business contexts are defined by the intense pressures of competition, challenges of integration across global markets, new concerns about sustainability and an intensification of resource conflicts around the world. This course presumes that strategic action of competition or cooperation is always embedded in societal, institutional and regulatory contexts. Rather than looking at these as constraints, it helps if one can appreciate how wins can be crafted and power effectively leveraged while working within and through these broader institutions, to the benefit of both the organization and society.
