Course Overview

This program is more relevant than ever because it presumes high levels of uncertainty, complexity, and velocity in every tool and technique we present. It further covers both the analytical side of coping with uncertainty (what to do) as well as the human side (how to get people to realize the challenges and respond appropriately). In this program, we insist on driving strategic decision making from the perspective of deep insight and differentiating rather than going along with the crowd.
This program focused on the process of finding opportunities, launching new ventures, and leading necessary organizational changes to revitalize and transform an organization in times of uncertainty. Participants will learn how to thrive in rapidly changing and highly uncertain environments and will be able to immediately apply their learning to make rapid progress on an issue they identify.
If you have ever worried about how to drive new growth or how to make a change initiative successful, you will enjoy the insights developed in this live online program.
