It has been developed for middle and senior managers who have the responsibility to translate organisational strategy into effective performance.
She concluded, “This qualification requires the manager to focus on implementing the organisation's strategy so participants will work on a business improvement project which will build upon management expertise that expands business capability and enables lasting change and growth.”
The CMI Level 7 Strategic Management and Leadership is open to middle and senior managers with at least 5 years’ experience.
