We’re here to help

What are the topics covered during the program?

The topics covered are all the 6 principles and best practices presented as a framework by Prof. Robert Kaplan in his book Execution Premium. The practical side of it was researched in detail by SMC – Strategy Management Collaborative and by member organizations. Case studies and the application of tools are part of the program.

What experience do I have to possess in order to maximize my takeaways?

Best would be to have already some experience in strategy design and management. Participants however have experience in general management, financial accounting and performance management. The program is designed to support the development of strategy and strategy management capabilities from little experience in this area.

What kind of practical exercises do participants go through?

The program was designed to give participants 3 different types of practical experiences:

  1. Process and Best Practice Case Studies
  2. Using and Applying Tools that support Strategy Management
  3. Leading the Strategy Management Process through Business Games.

What king of background do other participants have?

Most of participants have some experience in strategy management and very often good experience in business lines or products management or public sector service management. All participants are stimulated to learn from each other experience.

Please do explain the experience participants have during the Best Practice visits?

Before the best practice visits participants will analyse the case and prepare for the visit. During the visit participants will be challenged to analyse and define a “point of view” of the best practice presented as well as will have the opportunity to design together enhancements for the presented model.

What are the takeaways from the Best Practice visits?

Takeaways are not only the best practice process, tools and organization presented but also enhancements to the model presented. Participants are stimulated to stay contact with the program participants as well as with the host of the visited Best Practice organization.

How difficult is the SMC Certification Test? How long does it take?

The test takes a maximum of 90 minutes. Participants are stimulated to analyse a strategy management situation and answer questions in writing about it. Certification will be granted for those that have at least 70% of the questions properly answered.
