HOW TO THINK STRATEGICALLY: ESSENTIAL SKILLS TO INCREASE YOUR IMPACT

 
Managers at all levels are expected to engage regularly in strategic thinking. Those managers who consistently provide unique business insights that lead to their organization's competitive advantage will excel and often be rewarded with advancement opportunities. Strategic thinking is an open-ended activity, which makes it very challenging for some. It is helpful to have techniques and tools to expand one's capacity for strategic thinking and develop confidence in this area. Through interactive exercises and by engaging with real-world short cases, the program will empower you to engage in the kind of strategic thinking that can be transformative for organizations.
