In an increasing dynamic business environment, leaders need to ensure continuous value creation by gaining new insights of the fundamental drivers of their business and rigorously challenge conventional thinking about them.

This would require them to work and think strategically to continuously seek, identify, develop and target unique opportunities that will generate future enterprise value.

Differentiated strategic thinking challenges assumptions about the business value proposition, uncovers potential opportunities for creating value so that when the plan is created, in conversation with others, it beneficially leverages these opportunities for the benefit of all stakeholders.

In this workshop there will be an exposure to underlying concepts, tools and techniques that will help participants to appreciate the Strategy challenges of the 21st Century; and help recognize that tomorrow's success depends on individual and team abilities to imbibe and practice strategic thinking on an ongoing basis, to build alignment and ensure balance in execution and strategy.
