Being More Strategic in Uncertain Times, Tuesday April 18, 2017 9:00-10:45 ODLC

The world is becoming increasingly VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. Recent events include the dramatic drop in oil price, the unexpected shifts in the political arena across North America, and the impact of disruptive technologies and businesses.

It is precisely in this kind of rapidly changing environment that a strategic skillset is critical. Leveraging a more strategic approach can help you cut through the ups and downs of the market, the deluge of data from all directions, and the overload of messaging we all experience.

This session will explore an overview of the strategic skillset you need to be successful, including strategic thinking, strategic planning and communicating strategy. It will enable you to understand how each can be leveraged to mitigate the VUCA challenges you’re faced with in your environment

For anyone who’s ever been given feedback to “be more strategic”, this session will demystify what that means. It will offer practical tips to enable you to start applying a more strategic approach to your day to day routine.
