Advanced Programme in Strategy for Leaders
The Advanced Programme in Strategy for Leaders from IIM Lucknow is a comprehensive programme designed to impart core knowledge and skills required to lead a business or organisation from a strategy perspective. The curriculum will expose participants to basic concepts and framework of strategy and help them learn strategy formulation at different levels of an organisation. Further, participants will be taught to link strategy formulation and strategy implementation and acquire in-depth insights into advanced topics in strategy.

A business strategy is a set of guiding principles that when communicated and adopted in the organisation, generates a desired pattern of decision-making. (Harvard Business Review)

A coherent strategy is what separates a successful organisation from others. However, executing an organisational strategy to perfection is a team effort front-ended by leaders.

“Strategy is nothing without effective leaders to execute.”

In contemporary organisations, there are two major strategic roles of leaders:
