Art of Strategic Thinking and Planning

Brand New

Imagine that you’re facing a really important workplace decision. It’s one that could fundamentally affect your entire organization and ultimately your professional brand. You’ve analyzed the data and it appears everything is reasonable, but your instincts are whispering what might go wrong.

Regardless of your leadership experience, no one has a perfect vision of the future, and even if your instincts are good, the outcomes that you anticipate could be hijacked by a variety of variables.

Today’s most effective strategic leaders have tools that help them facilitate decisions objectively rather than subjectively. Of course over time leaders learn how and when to use their “gut,” more effectively, but for many managers and leaders, having a well thought out plan is the foundation for making effective decisions that lead to desired results and minimize impacts to their organization. Immerse yourself in knowing how to think strategically, followed by best practices on how to plan strategically.

  • Understand Scenario and Issues-Based Planning
