Business Strategy

Learn practical tools and strategic approaches to spearhead your organisation into the future

The legal profession has changed. How does your business strategy stack up?

It's time to ask some hard questions.

Should strategy always be centred on growth? Are there other barometers for success? Could collaboration – rather than competition – be a more effective strategy for your firm?

Now's the time to look through a critical lens at the age-old approach to legal business strategy.



Gain skills to critically analyse generic growth strategies, competitors, and internal and external business contexts.



Use novel methods – such as disruptive, growth and collaborative strategies – to take your business into the future.



Develop a sustainable plan that outlines where you are now, where you want to be and the steps to get there.



Align your strategy with your firm’s brand, purpose and values to drive every aspect of your business operations.
