Program Series Strategic Thinking: Driving Long-Term Success
Strategic Thinking: Driving Long-Term Success
Every organization must formulate its objectives and priorities and then determine how to achieve them. Doing so requires not only investments in people, processes, and organizational structure, but also in the analysis of trade-offs because resources are limited. Strategic thinking requires leadership to look for external and internal changes and trends that may call for adjusting the strategy.
This course on strategic thinking introduces the topic and helps you proactively manage your organization for long-term success. The program establishes a framework for strategic thinking and provides you with an opportunity to practice new strategies not only with respect to various case scenarios, but also with respect to your own agency. By the end of the two-day program, participants will possess fundamental tools and frameworks and will practice using them so they can be applied immediately in their workplaces.
This course is part of the Executive Pathways series, and is required for the Master of Science in Leadership.
