Exec MPA Seminar: Strategic Leadership for Public Service Organizations

EXEC-GP.1194, 4.5 points.


Only open to Executive MPA students.

Strategic Leadership is an advanced seminar designed to equip mid-career students with the tools, perspectives, and frameworks for executing high-impact strategy within mission-driven organizations. Topics include conceptual frameworks for understanding high impact organizations and the role of strategic leadership, analytical tools for developing and assessing strategy, approaches to working with stakeholders to mobilize commitment, and methods for leading change and achieving scale. We will explore a wide range of sources from established approaches to strategic planning and management to emerging practices such as narrative leadership and a campaign approach to change and will draw heavily on the experiences students bring to the classroom as well.
