Strategic Thinking

Participants discussing an exercise at a Midas training courseIf you plan where you want to go, you're a lot more likely to get there!

Effective use of strategic thinking, either for yourself or for your organisation, pays dividends for teams and organisations. If your whole team understands the concept and use of strategic thinking, it will help your organisation to go from strength to strength.

This topic is ideal if you know that change is on the horizon for your organisation, so that you make the best of the available opportunities. It's also very rewarding for new managers and new teams, to make sure they set off in the right direction.

A strategic thinking workshop is a very effective way of helping to create or maintain a motivated and cohesive team.

We will make sure that the materials we use in your workshop are based in the right context for your work and your team, to make sure it is packed with practical, effective tips for you to use immediately.

Here are some topics we may include in our Strategic Thinking training courses:

  • What is strategy?
  • Strategic or specific? Why it is important to make the distinction
  • What should your strategy cover?
  • Identifying strategic factors and their impact
  • Using Strategic Scenarios to create ideas

  • How to get the best from Strategic Conversations
  • Drivers and blockers for Strategic Thinking
  • Building a shared Strategic Vision
