Become a strategic thinker with this personalized online program

As an executive taking on greater leadership responsibilities, you need to learn how to think more strategically and develop an effective strategy for your unit or organization.

Strategic Thinking gives you tools to undertake a thorough strategic diagnosis. You analyze capabilities, strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, and identify capability and resource gaps in your own business context that could impact your strategy's implementation.

You'll walk away with a strategic roadmap and action plan which directs your business toward growth opportunities.

With this online course, basically I defined the future of the unit I’m leading. I changed some of my objectives and my goals, future goals... because I had the opportunity to think in other ways, to take into account more.
