The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the world as we have always known it. Businesses have been forced to go through rapid transformations just to remain afloat. The disruption caused by the pandemic has in many ways forced businesses to go back to asking core questions of why they exist, who they are built to serve and why their customers should continue to patronise them. The consequence of the economic challenges which many economists have termed as depression, recession, and economic stop has also diminished consumer disposable income and further expanded the strain businesses are facing.

There is a need for businesses to review their entire strategy and business model and consequently develop a strategic plan and execution roadmap that will comprehensively look at all parts of their value chain from the producer to their end customer to determine what the core priorities are and what most important choices they should make with the available information on market conditions and projections.

This seminar is designed to equip participants with skills and competence required to craft new strategies in the light of the circumstances that COVID-19 has created and also put in place structures that will facilitate the execution of the strategy.
