Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage – A CIAPS Masterclass

…In the end, what kills or makes an organisation is its competitive advantage compared to peers …” – Anthony A Kila

The main purpose of the masterclass’ “Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage”, is to help create Managers and Supervisors that can improve performances in their departments and activities of their companies as a whole.

This is an initiative of CIAPS with input from the Washington Institute for Strategic & Development Studies and the Business Club of London.

It is aimed at experienced and new Managers, as well as Supervisors, whose tasks include planning, implementing or supervising activities aimed at increasing revenue and improving services or production of their organisation.

This Executive Masterclass is crucial to all those that want to improve their performance and those who are new to the role but want to reach high levels.

The programme has been designed bearing in mind the need of and with a lot of input from users and buyers who have changed providers due to perceived unsatisfactory performance and sensibility. We have also gathered information from Organisations that have gained customers and new businesses from disgruntled customers.

It will also be an opportunity to share direct and inside tips about our ever-moving sectors.
