Strategy Builder: From Operational to Strategic Thinking

Event Details

Those in senior positions in organizations, and those on the way up, will discover that it is critical to move from operational to strategic thinking to continue to succeed.

Unlike operational thinking which is focussed on the details of ‘making things happen’, a strategic perspective is concerned with ‘what things’, ‘why’ and ‘how’. Strategic thinking brings together the individual functional areas of an organization - finance, human resources, marketing, supply chain management, accounting, and information systems in a way that enables you to understand the ‘big picture’ of how these elements work together to win overall.

From Operational to Strategic Thinking is a practical course based on the bestselling Strategy Builder book and app ( It provides an approach that allows you to systematically address strategic challenges. You will emerge from the course with a refreshed perspective and be able to implement a structured approach to strategic thinking, development and communication.
