From $0
Two, 2-hour Modules (9am - 11:30am PT)

Many people who are strong in operations are less comfortable with the ambiguity of strategy. People who avoid ambiguity will avoid strategy-setting discussions. This seminar provides tools to help you become an innovator, a persuasive player, and a champion of strategic change.

Through interactive practice sessions, you can close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. The intention of this seminar is not to train participants to be strategic planners for organizations, however. Rather, the focus is on helping you to develop a strategic mindset so that you can add value and inspire risk-taking and innovation on your team. Developing a strategic mindset will also help prepare you for taking higher levels of responsibility in your organization over time.

Outcomes:

  • Understanding of operations vs. strategy
  • A basis from which to be strategic
  • Tools for idea generation
  • Techniques to sell your big idea
