Overview Overview

Commercial awareness is of increasing benefit to us all and the organisations that we work for and / or support in our everyday working lives.
In challenging market and economic conditions, individuals need to have a greater awareness of how an organisation operates at a strategic level and how external influences affect the organisation’s progress.
Increasingly, staff and managers are being asked to take decisions with a strong focus on the external environment and the impact that such changes may have internally.
During this course you will be able to:
  • Apply strategic thinking tools to develop a direction for your team
  • Translate strategy into action
  • Identify key financial indicators affecting your team or organisation
