Developing Strategic Thinking Course

Developing Strategic Thinking - 2-day course for directors and senior executives in central London

This comprehensive course will provide you with new tools and techniques to improve your strategic thinking processes and better achieve your business goals.

You will examine real case studies to assess examples of real board and executive "failures", and so develop a deeper understanding of the importance of benchmarking and strategic thinking to boost board effectiveness. You will also gain a thorough insight of systematic processes and techniques that will help you enhance your practical strategic thinking capability.

You will also have the opportunity to create a structured personal development plan to support and improve your strategic thinking skills in the future.
