Course description

Strategy Management in Government & Public Sectors

The public sector's role and its classical paradigm of slow movement is changing. This fast paced change requires a specialized look at the meaning of strategy management in this key sector. Compared to private sector organizations, the public sector has a tremendously complex network of stakeholders, partners and customers with varying expectations. Beyond that, each public sector entity needs to understand its role in achieving higher purpose goals that meet the competitive ambition of the jurisdiction in which it operates.

In this course, we will discuss the importance of competitiveness as a nation. We will also deep dive into the elements of the strategy pyramid in the public sector looking at setting a national vision, cascading this vision to entities, putting the right Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure success, deciding on public policy and collaborating with partners to execute the strategy through initiatives.
