Pull everything we learned together. In this capstone course we will synthesize the various disciplines we have studied into a conceptual picture of how they work together in a functioning enterprise. This will give us insight into the thinking that takes place in the C level suite among the CEO, CFO, COO and the Board of Directors of a corporation. Orchestrating all these elements into a plan is the realm of Strategy. Strategic thinking can be broken into long term planning (5 year plan), short term tactical planning and budgeting for the coming year. We will address such issues as: How are you planning to grow your business and deal with competitors and alternative products? The challenges arise in how to keep planning as part of an organic, continual process and how to implement strategy and mange strategic momentum. It is so easy to get complacent and start to drift or lose focus and become diluted in your efforts by chasing too many goals. We will discuss focus, discipline and mindset as we bring it all together.

Note: Tuition Remission eligible.
