What is Strategic Management & Leadership?
Strategic Management and Leadership are two of the most key concepts for any successful business or organisation. Aspects of Strategic Management involve planning, implementation and monitoring of long-term goals, ambitions, and objectives of the business. Covering all the analysis of the internal and external environment that the organisation operates within, looking for the strengths and weaknesses, and developing or adjusting strategies based on ever changing business environments.
Leadership specifically refers to the ability to influence and guide others towards achieving such common goals. This can include inspiring, motivating and empowering colleagues or employees to achieve their, and by extension the organisation’s, potential.
Both skills are essential for managers and executives in order to make informed decisions, inspire employees and drive organisational growth.
