Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Overview: Strategic thinking involves intentionally taking a step back from the day-to-day and dedicating time to think about and plan for the future. It is about understanding where we are today, what may impact where we are going, and what will be critical for us to get there. This session will provide a framework to help us think about strategy and strategic thinking with a focus on action. We will explore how organizations can enhance strategic thinking across their organizations and explore tools and techniques to set goals and take action.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn an approach to frame and enhance strategic thinking across the organization
  • Explore tools and techniques to effectively set goals and translate strategic thinking into goals that are actionable
  • Identify how a “real-time” approach from strategy to action may work in your organization
  • Using a self-assessment tool, identify areas of strength and areas of opportunity with your existing approach to setting goals
