Executive Training Courses




Real Estate is just one of the many resources that an organisation will possess. While it generally represents an important and valuable set of assets, it nature, value and quantity will be ultimately determined by the strategic decisions made during an organisation’s strategic planning process.

Existing real estate resources may either significantly enhance or significantly constrain a company’s future activities; it follows that they should be developed in line with strategic goals and objectives. A strategic plan that does not consider real estate resources throughout the process will likely overlook an important influence on strategic success. The link between strategic planning and real estate should therefore be clear.


The specific objectives of the course are to:

  • Analyse the Corporate Position of an Organisation
  • Appreciate the Significance of an Organisation’s Strategic Planning Process
  • Know the Critical Features in Developing Strategy with Specific Reference to Real Estate
  • Understand the Role of the Real Estate Manager in the Strategic Decision Making Process
  • Develop a Real Estate Strategy For Growth, Change Or Recovery.
