Strategy Development Programme

Developing the Strategic Planning Capability of Senior Management

Managers in most NI companies tend to get caught up in the day to day running of the business, and very often the development of a strategy is something only dealt with in a crisis situation.

However, Invest NI’s experience is that companies grow faster when they have a sound strategy and a management team with strategic development skills.


A good strategy, gives the following benefits:

  • Management and employees have a clear and shared understanding of where the business is going
  • The company is better prepared to adapt to ever increasing changes in a competitive business environment
  • A strategic approach will highlight company strengths and areas for improvement
  • Successful implementation of a well thought-out strategy will increase competitiveness, growth and profits

How it Works

The strategy expert selected by Invest NI will work with you to tailor the most appropriate help, selecting from:

  • One to one on-site work with your management team
  • Workshops with other senior managers on a range of strategy development issues
  • Best Practice Seminars given by International Strategy Gurus
  • The strategy expert will work with you over a period of time to develop your own company’s strategy, and to take you through the initial stages of implementation.
