Course Overview

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. 

Intended For
