What is strategic thinking, and how does it differ from other types of thinking? What decisions should be considered strategic, and how should they be formulated? This program will teach you a methodology for thinking strategically. You will learn how to analyze assumptions, information, and frameworks to formulate strategic situations. In addition, you will discover how to develop solutions with an eye toward implementation.
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.
