How resourcefulness contributes to strategic thinking and your career
Saturday, May 29 at 4:50 pm – 5:20 pm CEST
Strategic thinking is an individual competency. That’s the idea behind Greg Githens’ best-selling book, How to Think Strategically. Sharpen Your Mind. Develop Your Competency. Contribute to Success.
Strategic thinkers are rare and valuable in organizations. They are more influential and more promotable.
Your personal resourcefulness is your ability to cleverly combine your existing resources with new ones to achieve success in the future. Resourcefulness is also the ability to spot new opportunities to apply your strategic resources.
Whether at the project level, the program level, the portfolio level, or the enterprise level, the goal is to cleverly use resources so as to craft strategy that is effective and powerful (and not the opposite).
This presentation will help you develop the four pillars of strategic thinking. In addition, you will be introduced to the microskills of strategic thinking and the Ben Franklin technique.
