This module both delivers the tools you need for this chief executive (c-suite) level strategic analysis, and engages in a scenario-style exercise that will enable you to identify, justify, and take control of the General Counsel’s mandate in contemporary organizations.

You will explore core topics such as:

  • first mover advantages and disadvantages
  • generic strategies and the benefits of focus
  • competitive strategy and industry structure
  • blue ocean strategy and industry transformation.
