Strategic Management BMA799



The aim of the unit is to develop an understanding of the key issues in strategic management particularly as they relate to managing the interface between an organisation and its internal resources and the elements of its external environment. The unit seeks to provide an understanding of major strategic options available to an organisation and help in how to evaluate and choose between these options and to understand the principles and activities of strategic management. The concepts and skills gained through study of strategic management apply equally to the public and private sectors.
