Strategy You Can Use

April 22 | 12:00 pm-1:30 pm 

 

There are over 100 models that a business can use to help them design, develop and implement Strategy. It is overwhelming and many of those models remain too theoretical to be helpful. In this dynamic and fast moving talk, Permjot explains why companies small and large need to understand what their Objective, Strategy and Tactics are and how to distinguish between them. It then moves to explore a model we can all use and that can help us plan exactly what we need to do to set our path for viable and rapid growth.

Responding to a Changing Environment

May 20 | 12:00 pm-1:30 pm 

It is often said that no business strategy survives first contact with a customer. This is often true. In this talk, we explore how to avoid this pitfall by having a plan that can detect and respond quickly to the external environment. Building on the first session this talk will give you the practical skills to incorporate into your growth strategy a plan for being able to respond quickly to changes – and to spot those changes.

Learning by Unlearning

June 24 | 12pm-1:30pm 

 

Growth requires new ways of thinking and acceptance of the need for a challenge from our colleagues, advisors and staff. But this is not easy. This very challenging talk explores many of the flaws that help develop our thinking and how to recognise and challenge them and to more broadly look at how we can become better at learning and jettison thoughts that may get in the way of pursuing growth opportunities

.

Scaling Up

July 22 | 12:00 pm-1:30 pm 

 

We have learned how to develop a great strategy, understand how the environment can shape our plans and how we can increase our ability to learn and respond from new information. Now we need to develop our ability to make it happen. This session focuses on how companies can scale up and execute on the plans they have made.

Courses are complimentary to Cape Breton Regional Chamber of Commerce members and Innovacorp members. For non-members, the course fee will be $50 per course or $150 to attend the whole series.
