Programme Description

Creating, articulating and implementing policy is a key function of leadership; understanding topical issues and framing the debate is not only an important part of a campaign – demonstrating a willingness to engage in innovative ideas will create confidence and trust, will build support over the long-term.

The UK’s Industrial Strategy is a response to consultation, collaboration and consensus: the programme will share the process; how a strategy is developed; benefits and challenges; how to create a supportive narrative; and how to monitor, measure and scrutinise objectives.

The programme will also examine and appraise a number of strategies in different environments, including the political.  Students will gain an understanding of how the thought process behind ‘strategy’ is a foundation of leadership.

Key Topics: 

  • Responding to national priorities
  • What impact, in terms of leadership, is needed from an overarching strategy such as the UK’s Industrial Strategy?
  • Leading the debate through policy development
  • Creating a narrative and a message
  • Collaboration through consultation
  • Building consensus and trust
  • Policy delivery and implementation
  • Measuring and scrutinising policy: how to embed policy over the long-term
