Texas Executive Education | Designing Winning Strategies

Designing Winning Strategies

Few terms are used more frequently in business than "strategy", but in too many companies it is little more than a slogan that serves no real purpose.

Moreover, executives in the same firm often disagree as to what their strategy is. This is clearly a problem, because to discuss, evaluate or change an organization’s strategy, you have to be able to identify and agree on it.


In this course, you will be exposed to the Strategy Diamond framework for characterizing and evaluating strategy, and also come to understand the logic by which organizational strategy should be developed. You will examine the critical choices that must be made to build an organization that is consistent with, and can implement, its strategy. Emphasis will be placed on the kind of architecture needed in companies whose strategies increasingly emphasize innovation and speed.


  • Identify the key elements of what a company strategy actually is
  • Identify the characteristics of a good company strategy
  • Understand how a winning strategy enables companies to gain and sustain competitive advantages
  • Learn how to translate key strategic objectives into organizational reality
  • Explore how to build organizational structure that can efficiently and effectively implement a company’s strategy
  • Assess your organization’s success objectively to determine what changes are needed
  • Incorporate temporary employees into your permanent workforce effectively
