This free online course, offers a holistic view of how to transform strategic intentions into reality from the perspective of senior executives. Over the course of five weeks, Brightline connects the 10 Guiding Principles to the learners via the course’s self-reflecting assessments, discussion-based exercises, case studies, and insights from world-leading experts and practitioners in the field of strategy.
