Macroeconomics For Strategic Decision Making

Monday, May 14, 2012
By A Business Correspondent

Forewarned is forearmed. The economy sends us signals of impending trouble. For example, the first signs of the Global Financial Crisis that affected the world economy were seen in 2005 – at least 30 months before the crisis erupted! And some firms did take the opportunity to change their strategy.

Fortunately, a good understanding of the macro frameworks for business can help us anticipate adverse changes. The data contains the direction. But interpreting the signs is an art.

This course trains you to look for signals from the economy and interpret them for your business. From manufacturing to financial services, from IT to aviation, if you routinely decide your firms strategy, or are linked to strategy making, this course will benefit you.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)A disparity over payment may take longer than you thought. Be a little flexible and ready to compromise. It may not be in your interest to prolong things for too long. A temptation to overspend will have to be watched. You may have to defer your travel plan due to an illness in the family. You can get attracted to a person who is not for you. It is perhaps just an infatuation and will pass before you even know it happened.
