Strategic Thinking Development
"Strategic thinking goes beyond the creative process of understanding and adapting to a changing environment. It is a different way of thinking about the impact of markets, trends and other external factors on your organization, including the way you, as a leader, react to those changes."
- Sabine Hoover, Senior Research Consultant, FMI Corporation
What is Strategic Thinking?
The ability for leaders in the A/E/C industry to think strategically is crucial to survive in our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world. Strategic Thinking is the on-going process that influences a broader, more anticipatory approach to strengthen your competitive advantage.
