    That is a very broad subject - for example there is an ITIL course in Service Strategy or the TOGAF course in IT architecture that has broad swathes on strategy - or other courses in security strategy etc - can you be more specific?

    It is so broad that to cover it even at a highish level you are probably better off taking an MBA and learning some useful supplimentary skills rather than looking at a quick fix of a course - doing it right at a broad level needs a wide range of skills that one course just won't cover well enough.

    Makes sense which is why I'm in an MBA program right now. I just wanted to augment my skills from what I've learned and provide another form of validation to employers.

    Thanks Uncle B!

    It would help your planning a lot if you had an area of interest to guide your study focus.

    To this end, are you interested in:
    setting business strategy - in which case the MBA is all that matters
    setting IT strategy - get TOGAF practitioner and possibly ITIL Expert certified
    setting project strategy - look at PMP and PgMP for project and program management
    etc

    If you don't have a focus yet then start thinking about one would be my recommendation.
