Strategy in Practice syllabus summary

Module outline and aims
This module examines the elements, processes and techniques involved in the development and implementation of organisational strategy. As part of the senior management team, Chartered Secretaries have an important role to play in ensuring that strategy fits organisational purpose, is acceptable in terms of risk, and is consistent with good governance as well as with stakeholder requirements and concerns.

The module assesses the critical role played by Chartered Secretaries as part of the senior management team: ensuring the integrity of the policies, systems and processes that deliver the organisation’s strategic purpose and objectives. The obligations of directors, officers and senior employees in the strategic planning and delivery of corporate responsibility are also considered. The module will also require you to understand the ethical considerations raised by the development and implementation of strategy and its impact on reputation.
