“Strategic thinking rarely occurs spontaneously” – Michael Porter


Strategic thinking involves thinking differently about what we do. Many of us tend to make decisions with short-term thinking – as something arises, we respond with a decision. Our strategic management workshops can help to give structure to your thinking and planning, enabling you to plan ahead, identify potential roadblocks and prepare contingencies for a variety of outcomes.   


Key employee training programs related to strategic thinking include critical thinking training for employees, business acumen workshops, management training workshops, performance management training.

    Course Description

    People must think while they act, not in a step-by-step way towards a known goal but in irregular ways. Strategic thinking involves thinking ahead to what can happen; identifying what can go wrong and preparing for these eventualities. This can also be called long term planning. It assists us to be proactive and plan ahead.

    Planning is the activity of bridging the gap mentally from where you are now, to where you want to be in the future in terms of accomplishing a task. When work processes get out of control, it is often because insufficient time and effort has been invested at the initial planning stage. Strategic thinking combines right brain intuitive, creative, imaginative thought with left brain analytical, quantitative activity in as much or as little depth as necessary, to reach the desired end result.
