This workshop provides an introduction to strategy, exploring what it is, why it is important and how it relates to the application of co-operative values and principles.

This workshop explores the project lifecycle and its application in line with co-operative values and principles.

Who is it for?

Those involved in business development and leadership of co-operative organisations will find this course particularly useful, although it will be of interest to anyone whose role involves supporting effective strategic and operational decision making.

What will participants learn?

During the workshop participants will:

  • Explore why it is important for businesses to have a strategy, including the benefits of having a strategy and the risks of not having one
  • Determine how strategies are created
  • Consider the difference between strategic questions and operational questions
  • Reflect on their own role and influence in supporting effective strategic and operational decision making, while keeping co-operative values and principles at the forefront

How will participants learn?

The workshop takes an active learning approach, encouraging participants to engage in group discussions and reflective activities to enhance learning and generate further thinking.

As part of the workshop, learners will also be encouraged to consider strategies within their own organisations and how they align with the co-operative values and principles.
