Course Overview Course Requirements And Certificates Delegates must meet two criteria to be eligible for an IIRME/GW Certificate of Completion for a course: 1. Satisfactory attendance – delegates must attend all sessions of the course. Delegates who miss more than 2 hours of the course sessions will not be eligible to sit the course assessment. 2. Successful completion of the course assessment. Delegates who do not meet these criteria will receive an IIRME Certificate of Attendance. If delegates have not attended all sessions, the Certificate will clearly state the number of hours attended.

It is widely recognised that the majority of organisations struggle to execute their chosen strategy – to deliver what they promise. This unique training course considers the key issues that need to be managed to achieve successful strategy execution to be achieved. The course addresses three main themes: • The capabilities, processes and tools for successful strategy execution • The supporting strategy execution processes – with special reference to the development and usage of strategic KPIs. What gets measured gets managed. • The surrounding cultural environment and behaviours – with special reference to leadership, communication, change management, and a performance culture.
