The Centre also offers a four-day Strategy Bootcamp - which takes place around the end of September  (2020 date to be confirmed)

The Bootcamp is aimed at those in a corporate or BU strategy role, or in Business Development. 

This four-day Bootcamp is aimed at people in the strategy or business development function at either at the corporate level or in a business unit.  It is geared towards those who want to refresh or supplement their current strategy skills, but also accommodates those who have not received much training in how to use strategy tools and analysis. In the course of the four days, we will cover a fairly comprehensive range of topics for the strategist, including (but not limited to): developing strategy; strategic and financial tools for designing business strategies; understanding value creation, value propositions, and competitive advantage; portfolio strategy tools; communicating strategy; strategy under uncertainty; and strategy execution.
