Course information

As the business environment becomes increasingly uncertain, it’s apparent that traditional approaches to strategy are no longer sufficient to navigate such rapid change. Leaders now need to ask, “How should strategy evolve to better prepare us for the future?” The Oxford Executive Strategy Programme seeks to answer this question.

Informed by the distinct research strengths of Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, the programme unpacks how strategy is changing and how breadth within strategic thinking, in addition to thinking long-term, is imperative to leading strategy. You’ll learn about strategy from Oxford’s unique perspective, based on a core framework of the four Ps: purposes, players, partnerships, and processes. With this new approach to organisational strategy that considers rapidly changing environments, stakeholders, and digital transformation, you’ll become prepared to lead strategy in disruptive environments.
