It's important that all professionals in an organisation learn how to think strategically to help with their management tasks. This course explores the characteristics of strategic thinking and the traits you need to develop personally to be an effective strategic thinker. You'll learn how to think beyond the short term, make sense of opposites and contradictions, and better understand cause and effect. Understanding your organisational value chain will also help you connect to your organisation's strategy and strategic plans, enabling you to implement them more effectively. The course then moves to a consideration of risk - how to understand and prepare for it, how to assess it, and how to manage it.

This value pack includes these short courses:

  • Thinking strategically as a manager
  • Using strategic thinking to consider the big picture
  • Identifying risks in your organisation
  • Assessing your organisation's risk
  • Responding effectively to risks

This value pack consists of multiple short courses, giving you the flexibility of accelerated learning while fitting it into your increasingly busy schedule. The topics listed above contain a number of micro learning assets, each of which take between 3 - 6 minutes to view. Focusing on a single learning objective per subcategory, these courses will give you practical tools that you can implement immediately.
