Strategic Thinking Workshop
Strategic Thinking Workshop in Singapore
Strategic thinking is the ability to plan out the future. It is the ability to foresee changing conditions in the workplace or the surroundings and plot countermeasures to prevent possible disadvantages. It is a quality most companies and firms would consider valuable coming from their employees. Managers need this skill to plan out department details, prepare the annual budget, and, forecast goals and projects.
As ironic as it seems, most of the newly-appointed managers or executives find it difficult to let go of their previous tasks and responsibilities. A common complaint is that they don’t have enough time to do strategic thinking or to see the bigger picture since they, barely, have time to do their routinary tasks or take out issues encountered.
From a study by Harvard Business, the managers they were lecturing to were not sure what it meant to think strategically. They didn’t know what to do even when they were offered to have a whole day cleared up so they can do strategical thinking. Some of them gave out blank stares and shrugs in response. Some also assumed that watching documentaries or intellectual videos could help them improve their skills.
This skill is intended for everybody and not just for managers or executives. When individuals anticipate things to change and prepare for them beforehand, it gives them an advantage against losses and unexpected results. Mistakes can still happen, however, but it won’t be as hard to take rather than nonchalantly wishing everything will go smoothly without supervision.
Strategic Thinking gives individuals the instruments to undertake a meticulous strategic diagnosis. Training participants will analyse capabilities, strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, and recognise ability and resource lulls in your their own business context that could impact their strategy’s implementation.
Improving this skill takes time and practice, but, it is not impossible to achieve. Four ways to do it is to be proactive, understand counterarguments, regularly optimize, and, keep updated with trends and the news. This course will help individuals examine their strategic thinking skills. Assessing their current abilities will aid them in improving themselves for upcoming opportunities.
This Strategic Thinking Workshop is ideal for anyone who would like to gain a strong grasp and improve their Strategic Thinking Skills.
