The control systems of traditional management, characterised by a strong predominance of financial aspects of budget planning and control, have suffered a significant challenge in recent years, focusing on their limited contribution in implementing the strategy.
The strategic execution is now one of the central concerns of managers, with the shift in focus of strategic thinking to the processes, procedures, policies and management tools to guide the organisation's alignment to achieve the strategic objectives.
The international popularity of new integrated frameworks of which stands the Balanced Scorecard model, created a repositioning opportunity of management control systems as a key element of strategy execution.
Thus fully justified the timeliness and relevance of this Management Control Course, oriented for Strategic Implementation.
