What is Strategic Management?

To be successful, every organization needs to have a central plan that focuses everyone’s efforts toward a goal from the top down. It takes careful planning and problem solving skills for a leader to define the organization’s goals and implement a specific plan to help achieve those goals. That’s what strategic management is all about:

  • Work with the leadership of a business, nonprofit, or government agency to define their goals.
  • Develop a plan to achieve that goal with every level of the organization and resource. 
  • Execute the plan with careful attention to performance measurements.

As a practical doctorate in business, our DBA in Strategic Management can equip you with the skills in policy and procedure development you will need to lead an organization in any industry.
