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.

Why You Should pursue This Programme

  • Develop a strategic thinking mode –understanding how power is wielded and negotiated in multiple contexts, especially amidst great ‘complexity’ and institutional transformations.
  • Understand strategic landscapes of industries, including the interface with law and regulation, and institutional variation across nations.
  • Understand sustainability, resource conflicts and its relation to strategy.
  • Manage multi-stakeholder interests and institutional frameworks thereof, especially of work-force/skill-holders and communities with various resource rights.
  • Identify the strategic significance of few contemporary developments such as outsourced models of business, vigorous use of informatics, delayering of organizations, modularization of product systems and so on.
  • Strategize in a network mode – competition and cooperation; especially appreciating role of shared assets.
  • Understand the economics of strategy moves, especially under decreasing and increasing returns.





This programme is aimed at managers in organizations who are currently in roles that require them to handle strategic issues, or managers who are looking to move into such roles. Senior and middle level managers and profit centre heads would find the programme particularly useful. Working professionals wishing to participate in the programme need to have a minimum experience of 7 years. Managers with longer and broader experience would benefit more from the programme.


Working executives who are graduates (10+2+3 or equivalent) in any discipline with 50% marks, with an experience profile of at least 7 years after graduation are eligible. Applicants with desired work experience who do not have 50% marks in graduation but 50% or more in post-graduation are also eligible.


The programme will use multiple modes of interactive delivery. Lectures and readings of concept pieces would be linked to discussion of business cases (and business histories), to ground theories/concepts in practice. The programme will also use extensively the widely distributed knowledge pieces within the web (in the public domain) through use of links, thematic sites to aid considerable self exploration by motivated senior managers and business leaders. Each platform interaction would require pre-reading and preparation in group-based modes by the participants. The course will also have a series of practitioner-interaction sessions.
