Event Description:
To succeed, any organisation must thrive in a fast changing and dynamic world. The effect of this is that strategy must be intelligent and dynamic. Also, it might be that much of what you know about strategy is obsolete. Research shows that old ways of creating corporate strategy will not sustain the growth and change that many organisations need. Orgamatics gives a scientific way on how to develop strategy. In so, it teaches how to craft a favourable future for any organisation. Our aim with this training is to give, explain, and show the best international practice in strategy development. It is therefore imperative that any person who works in this field must attend this workshop.

The International Orgtology Institute (IOI) endorses this workshop. Therefore, we base the workshop on the IOI Standards for “Develop a Strategy”. The aim of these standards is to devise a strategy in a systematic and scientific way so that it will enhance the structure, performance, risk, and culture within an organisation. The theories that we teach will give the best global practice on methods of strategy design. Our approach is practical and will help participants to grasp their organisations with a depth that is beyond former knowledge.

At Derek Hendrikz Consulting, we have vast experience in strategy development and implementation. We have completed a myriad of projects for private and public institutions within 27 countries. It is this experience that makes us a wise choice in teaching how to develop a strategy. In this workshop, learners will learn how to keep their organisations relevant within a dynamic environment.

After this training, participants will be able to…
We base our workshop outcomes on the quality standards as issued by the International Orgtology Institute (IOI).
1. Define the purpose of an organisation (IOI Standard 1).
2. Develop a business model for an organisation (IOI Standard 2).

7. Define strategic objectives (IOI Standard 9).
