Training: Strategic Thinking in Digital Disruption Age (VUCA Environment)

Join us for a two-day training session on Strategic Thinking in the Digital Disruption Age (VUCA Environment)

Objectives and Content

Most organisations go through some form of strategic planning cycles. Essentially, this may involve two broad phases: the formulation and the execution. As strategy reflects the collective wisdom of the organisation, it is imperative that it is designed and executed well. It is expected that participants to this Workshop are highly engaged and interactive as “strategy is dead” without active dialogue and sharing of experiences. Business cases of real digital disruption companies happening within China versus EU & USA will be discussed in classroom.

Why Join This Training?

This two-day Strategic Thinking Program provides a comprehensive approach to strategy concepts, its implications on management teams and the aftermath of strategy formulation – strategy execution. The Program is not meant to be an academic discourse on strategy but adopts a practical and applications-oriented approach to address strategy issues at the management team level. The Program will be conducted on a 1 + 1 basis where participants will attend first the workshop, then complete a project within 2 months and follow by personal coaching 1 on 1 basis. Essentially, the ultimate intention of this Program is to enhance the strategic thinking capability of participants through their grasp of strategy development and deployment.
