Today’s organizational leaders need to dig out from the day-to-day minutia and break free from the conventional ways “we’ve always done it” and spend more time thinking about leading our teams into the future. This session allows them to step back from the trees to see the forest and lays the foundation for better strategic thinking within project teams, departments, and overall organizations. Participants will abstract out concepts to develop a long-range strategy to take back to their teams and organization.
Strategic thinking is designed to help participants change their focus from day-to-day issue management to a long-term, strategic perspective. The session involves the use of case studies and real-world examples that encourage non-linear thinking and help participants “look around the corner.” Furthermore, participants will not only have a chance to implement the strategic thinking tactics, but also develop a collective sense of ownership of the company’s strategic direction.
