About the Course

It is widely recognized that a key area for the development of leaders and managers is their ability to think strategically and to apply new, counter-intuitive ways of thinking and innovative approaches to solving challenges and exploiting future opportunities.

This program will provide leaders and managers with a flexible and adaptable framework for thinking strategically and exploring strategies for the benefit of their organization.

The future is not an empty space, but like the past, it is an active factor in the present. How we think about the future directly impacts the strategic decisions we make today. In this era of complexity and accelerated change, we must intentionally create the right future for ourselves and our organizations. Future thinking can turn a complex and ambiguous world into a map of new innovations, possibilities, and opportunities.
