Strategic Thinking (Virtual Learning)

Strategic thinking is an essential core skill for Senior Executives, as establishing a culture of innovation and developing positive future outcomes requires those overseeing or accountable to projects to think strategically and anticipate change.

This course is designed to offer participants the chance to explore the concept of strategic thinking and practise using the different tools that would enable them to think tactically in the face of various possible futures.

Strategic Thinking is a trending online course within our Leadership & Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training.
