A workshop based on the work of Dr Julia Sloan and Dr Edward de Bono
"Truly innovative strategic thinking is not about playing out new patterns in existing frameworks, but rather, about creating new frameworks and different patterns within these new frameworks."
Dr Julia Sloan
Strategic Thinking is about effectively shaping the future.
We live in a rapidly changing, unpredictable environment.
The problem causes and solutions are complex .
Our thinking frameworks are often only based on linear and adversarial thinking.
This workshop is delivered by live trainers virtually or in person. It is designed to develop the courage, creativity and critical reflective processes to engage in strategic thinking. Agility, innovation, and diversity of thought are essential drivers of sustainability.
Edward de Bono discusses the need to restructure once successful ideas. (3 mins 21 sec)
"In the future, instead of striving to be right at a high cost, it will be more appropriate to be flexible and plural at a lower cost. If you cannot accurately predict the future then you must flexibly be prepared to deal with various possible futures."
Dr Edward de Bono
