Strategy is concerned with the long term direction of an organisation - with making strategic choices about how to best use resources and how to align the firm with the operating environment. Business Strategy enhances students' knowledge of the process of strategy formulation, implementation and evaluation within a business, and the key contextual factors and managerial decisions which influence this process. The unit develops skills in research, academic writing and application to current and future business environments. The unit amalgamates aspects from a range of management areas and prepares students to be able to develop and apply sound business strategy methods in practical settings.While senior managers, entrepreneurs, and strategic consultants are most concerned with an organisation’s strategy, it is important for all professionals to have an understanding of strategy. This will allow them to make better workplace decisions, to win better support for their initiatives, and to improve their chances of gaining appropriate employment.
