Avoid the pitfalls of strategy planning and execution with the tools and skills from this course. You'll learn the pillars of strategy execution--analysis, formulation, and implementation--and how to use the 4A model to effectively approach strategy execution. Finally, a panel of leaders from entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and industry, share their expertise gleaned from years of successful strategy planning and execution.

Strategic Planning and Execution is course 4 of 5 in the Business Strategy Specialization.

This Specialization covers both the dynamics and the global aspects of strategic management. With cases drawn from leading companies like Disney, Microsoft and Zappos, you'll learn how to evaluate industry evolution, build and sustain competitive advantage, formulate and assess business strategies, and align efforts to organizational strategy. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply your skills by creating a complete strategic plan for an existing business or a venture of your own. Top-rated Capstone Projects will be reviewed by Professors Michael J. Lenox and Jared D. Harris and as many as 50 top Specialists in Business Strategy will have their application fees to Darden waived.
