Strategic thinking is a process that defines the manner in which people think about, assess, view, and create the future for themselves and others.
Strategic thinking is an extremely effective and valuable tool. One can apply strategic thinking to arrive at decisions that can be related to work or personal life. Strategic thinking involves developing an entire set of critical skills. If you would like to know what the 11 top-most critical skills are, then this course is for you. It is an eye-opener!
The greatest and most successful organisations in the world, over many years and decades, would think ahead and encourage great strategic thinking at least somewhere in the business plans. However, the challenge to that in too many organisations today is that we focus on the short-term measures of the current year's or the next few year's output. A sustainable future requires much more, no matter how big or small your business is, and a major requirement is strategic thinking.
This course is designed for those who have experience of leading and managing others, and who want to develop their leadership style and sharpen their impact. The content will apply to any industry sector that you are in.
The attendee list for this event is exclusively available to CAs.
