Strategic Thinking Skills & Training
The future is full of opportunity, but it takes the action of strategic thinkers to make the future exciting and productive. In today's fast-changing business environment, both managers and individual contributors alike need to have a broad perspective, vision, and an awareness of the cultural trends and business developments shaping their world. Many managers are so focused on delivering today's business results, preoccupied with daily responsibilities that they fail to position themselves for long-term success.
CMOE’s Applied Strategic Thinking workshop is designed to help leaders and individual contributors find balance between meeting today's expectations and requirements and tomorrow's possibilities. To be successful, everyone must learn how to keep an eye on the opportunities, issues, and concerns that may affect future business results.
Applied Strategic Thinking workshop is a highly interactive learning experience based on our book, Ahead of the Curve which details the practical Applied Strategic Thinking Model and its related tools. It is utilized by clients around the world at all levels of organizations. This learning event provides rich exercises and opportunities for the development of practical skill that are designed to help managers and team members successfully capitalize on the forces and events that are shaping their future.
Getting everyone in the organization involved in the thinking strategically will help:
- Individuals become forward thinking in their every day roles.
- Business units attain more traction and support for overarching strategies that drive bottom line results.
- Balance the daily tactical pressures with strategic initiatives.
- Individuals discover new sources of motivation and excitement in their work.
- Promote the discovery of innovative solutions.
Because each client is unique, we offer the Applied Strategic Thinking workshop in a one-day, one and a half day, or two day format. We can provide train-the-trainer certification for clients who prefer this approach to delivery. In addition to Applied Strategic Thinking skills, CMOE provides training and learning solutions on Strategic Leadership and Strategic Planning.
CMOE also delivers Applied Strategic Thinking as a two or three day experience at the greatest historic sites around the world. Sites range for the Gettysburg Battleground in the United States, to Waterloo in Belgium and many others. The ideas and concepts presented in Applied Strategic Thinking can be linked directly to the field strategies and decisions made at key battles in history. Participants spend a portion of the workshop exploring the battlefield with world renown tour guides, during which time our facilitator will relate the battlefield situation to the skills and principles of modern Applied Strategic Thinking. This innovative approach to the learning experience is an engaging and once-in-a-lifetime experience for participants, one that will make an impact on participants for years to come.
