Workplace Application: Learn techniques and frameworks for generating strategic insights and transforming those insights into real-world strategies that will help you make decisions that will lead to profitable growth for your organization.

Over 50% of companies report that strategic thinking is the skill their senior leaders most need to improve, but less than 10% of directors and vice presidents receive any formal training on strategic thinking. Horwath will provide you with a systematic way to develop your strategy skills as well as those of your senior leaders. The “Three Disciplines of Strategic Thinking” framework enables you to generate new insights for your business, effectively allocate critical resources through strategic trade-offs, and avoid the firefighting reactionary habits that keep leaders mired in the tactics. Horwath will build on the foundational principles of strategy and will introduce practical new tools to give you insight on creating competitive advantage, driving customer value innovation and transforming the strategy process. 

Date(s) & Time(s):
