No matter the industry, there is an increasing expectation for managers, employees, and business owners to understand an organisation's performance management system through the lens of strategy and strategic intent.

This Melbourne MicroCert is ideal for professionals seeking a deeper understanding of organisational strategy, the value-chain, strategy maps, and balanced scorecards, which combine to drive the work of individuals and teams striving for success.

Designed to give you essential practical experience, Managing Strategic Performance has been co-designed with Telstra, Australia's leading telecommunications company.

Learning in this course is equivalent to level 9 of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

Identify and articulate an organisation's strategic intent

Learn to precisely identify and articulate the strategy of an organisation or work unit, and the relationship to the value chain in which the organisation competes.

Connect strategy to operations through performance metrics

Learn to connect strategy to operations using the performance management framework. Explore its key components,  including strategy maps, and identify how this framework is used to develop financial and non-financial metrics.

Use a balanced scorecard framework to connect strategy to operations and capacity management
