Strategic Thinking
07 Nov - 08 Nov
Tata Management Training Centre, 1, Mangaldas Road, Pune 411001
Many organizations are struggling to build strategic thinking capabilities. Our survey among participants of TMTC's leadership programs shows that employees spend more than 80% of their time thinking about today's issues and do not spend enough time thinking about the future. Their focus is on making operational decisions and on day-to-day firefighting, which leaves them with very little time to think about their businesses more strategically. Lack of strategic thinking is cited by leaders in a range of industries as one of the reasons for slow or inconsistent growth across businesses.
Strategic thinking requires a systems perspective, understanding of the macro environment, and an ability to connect the dots to stay ahead of competition. Better strategic thinking capability can thus add significant value to an organization's performance. This program focuses on helping participants understand the importance of strategic thinking, how tools and techniques can be used to enhance individual strategic thinking capability, and how the strategic thinking process can be applied to enhance the quality of decisions. The program helps participants to think critically about various business situations and to learn from them.
