Detailed programme

The 'Strategy Excellence Programme' consists of 3 key components:
1. How strategy can make you stand out from the crowd: Strategy Formulation
2. How to excel and compete with others: Strategy Implementation
3. Connecting the dots: individual coaching based on your specific strategic challenges

1: Strategy Formulation (3 days)

  • Generating strategic insights via sound analysis
  • Formulating a winning business strategy
  • Creating value at the corporate level
  • Developing and nurturing breakthrough business ideas
  • Strategy beyond markets

2: Strategy Implementation (3 days)

  • Implementing a Winning Business Strategy
  • From Strategy to Action: Strategy Mapping and the Balanced Scorecard
  • Strategy Implementation and Change

3: Individual coaching & action plan

  • Coaching helps you get even more out of your learning – and out of yourself. During your journey you’ll have two coaching sessions of 1,5hrs with a Vlerick Strategy faculty. Working with your faculty coach, you will set goals and find the best opportunities to bring your learnings to your own organization.

Our approach

We’ve designed this programme to have a direct, positive impact on your company’s business results. It combines two short, focused modules ‘Strategy Formulation’ and ‘Strategy Implementation’. These are backed up with individual coaching sessions, where you can discuss your action plans and get expert feedback and guidance.

Vlerick’s ethos is about learning by doing – so as well as the theory and insights, you’ll learn hands-on techniques and practices. And of course, all our sessions are highly interactive. You’ll take part in discussions and consider case studies with fellow participants who come from a range of industries and sectors. Which means you’ll learn from their experiences as well as from our expert faculty.

    A learning experience like no other

    When you come to Vlerick, you step away from your usual routine and gain a wider perspective. You discover how to tackle challenges, turn your knowledge into action and apply your skills in your workplace. You learn from faculty who are experts in their fields – and from a diverse group of peers. All these things help you become a confident, skilled professional, ready to succeed in business – and in life.

In this white paper, Vlerick strategy experts have joined forces to reflect on the implications of the pandemic for businesses, to share best practices on how to deal with the current situation in the short term, and to offer methods and advice on how to build a strategy for the new normal.
