In a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world, organisations more than ever need to anticipate and respond to changes in the business environment at speed. As the challenges of the pandemic have shown, those who are able to pivot quickly to new norms and business models survive, while those unable to are soon left scrambling.
Leaders need to continually refine their strategies to achieve their business objectives, often in response to fast-paced industry and environmental shifts. At the heart of it, critical thinking skills are crucial to solve complex problems and plan for future growth. It is not just "what" you think but also "how" you think that matters. What does strategy, and being strategic in approach, mean for your organisation? How can you best develop strategic thinkers and prepare your business for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead?
Join Christina Choong, our Network Moderator in Kuala Lumpur, as she welcomes Professor Charles Fine, founding President and Dean of Asia School of Business and Chrysler LGO Professor at MIT Sloan, and Hana Raja, Managing Director of Cisco Malaysia, to discuss their views on developing strategic thinking for organisations and implementing strategic capabilities, based on their experiences and case examples. We will examine how developing strategic thinkers should be at the core of your organisation and discuss how this capability could be made widespread among all levels of your business.
