Elevating Strategic Thinking for Sustainable Performance | May 25
Our external environment is becoming more and more unpredictable. An organization’s ability to adapt, respond and lead in our current environment – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) – requires leaders to elevate their strategic thinking capacity. If organizations are to compete effectively as well as to create lasting value for our constituents, leaders need to see beyond the immediate horizon to strengthen their internal dynamic capabilities. In this full day workshop, we will bring forth some classic management frameworks and review these frameworks in our current context. Furthermore, in order to turn insights into actions, we will share with you approaches to strategic planning and execution so that you can enhance internal competencies in addressing the prevailing challenges organizations face to deliver sustainable performance.
- Learn and refresh classical external and internal assessment frameworks with a renewed perspective in the current context
- Learn the concept of Balanced Scorecard to monitor performance
- Introduce enterprise strategic planning and execution process to develop agility in responding to a changing environment
- Introduce an assessment tool to understand your organization’s strategic capability
