Description

Corporate Strategy is concerned with how companies create value across different businesses: the business model; the market landscape; identifying what customers want (and will pay a premium for) – without a corporate strategy, an organisation is rudderless in the water. 

Regardless of the position of your organisation in its corporate lifecycle, corporate strategy is an essential – and this falls to the senior leadership team as well as aspiring leaders.

Divisional Manager, Manufacturing (UK)

What I would highlight: I was worried that four days talking about strategy was going to be a problem. But I was wrong. The fact that there were so many exercises meant that there was a great mix of theory and activity and then it was all tied back into what I was doing at work. Of all the workshops and training programs I’ve been on, this one was a real standout.

What I would highlight: The venue was amazing. It was the most pain-free experience. Add to that, the delegate packs really blew people away - all of this before the actual workshop! On the point of the workshop the content was very interesting and the workbook made sure that we didn’t have to suffer data overload but could focus on exercises that tied back into what we are doing in the organisation. You guys were great!

What I would highlight: I have been assigned responsibility for looking at the overall strategy of our company, specialising in construction. Eskil gave us an option of different facilitators and we selected a French speaker to deliver four days to us. We completed over twenty exercises designed to build our corporate strategy including branding, positioning, pricing, etc. I really enjoyed the workshop but think we would have benefited from it being two sessions of two days each to give us an opportunity to absorb all the learning. When Eskil completes creating its workshop that also includes elearning, I will be sending my department on this program.

5.0 08/10/2014
What I would highlight: I am a junior strategist and needed to build my understanding of corporate strategy. My manager recommended Eskil to me as they delivered workshops in Arabic as well as English and I was able to speak to the company before the workshop so that they could tune some of the content for me. They also advised me of certain sources of information that would be useful to me and sent me their workbook in advance that had notes for all of the slides. I felt prepared for the workshop and did not feel uncomfortable. I learnt a lot on the workshop and was able to demonstrate my new knowledge to my manager on my return.
What could be improved: No complaints.
