IBUS12-251: Concepts of Strategy

Description

Strategic management involves the formulation and implementation of value-generating activities. In this subject, you will learn fundamental aspects of environmental, competitive and internal analysis that will help you understand key determinants of firm success. You will also develop a critical perspective on the significance and interrelated nature of the ‘process’, ‘context’ and ‘content’ of strategy, and the importance of ethical decision-making in determining action and planning implementation. Consideration of an organisation’s strategic outlook and capabilities will help you integrate knowledge from other disciplines and help you develop a comprehensive and holistic understanding of organisational success.
