  • eClass

Every depart­ment has a crit­i­cal role to play in deliv­er­ing an orga­ni­za­tion’s strat­e­gy. This sem­i­nar pro­vides an overview of strate­gic plan­ning in an orga­ni­za­tion and the basic ele­ments of a strate­gic analy­sis (SWOT). The Porter 5‑forces mod­el for ana­lyz­ing the com­pet­i­tive envi­ron­ment will be intro­duced. Top­ics cov­ered include crit­i­cal suc­cess fac­tors, strate­gic maps and com­pa­ny posi­tion­ing, and strate­gic mod­els (low-cost, dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, niche). Dis­cuss how to devel­op a strate­gic plan in a sup­ply man­age­ment role and the link­ages between the strate­gic plan and a budget.

Syn­chro­nous online learning, eClass

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details

All of us at Extension are looking forward to welcoming you to our virtual classrooms this season with courses that are tailor-made for online delivery. Join us!
