You are hereHome / Strategic Blindspots
Is your decision making guided by assumptions which are out of touch or out of date? Organizations invest a lot of time and energy in strategy but invalid beliefs and biases may be derailing your success. These strategic blindspots distort your perception of competitive reality, so that even the most seasoned managers may fail to foresee major events affecting the environment. The consequences for your organization can be frustrating at best and disastrous at worst.
In this topic, you will be introduced to some of the most common organizational blindspots. You will then investigate a number of your taken-for-granted assumptions and discuss how your organization can move beyond them.
The objectives for this session are to:
- Increase your awareness of strategic blindspots and specifically those most prominent in your organization.
- Investigate unexplored opportunities.
- Decide how you can capitalize on your insights.
Here's How it Works
This is a new approach to developing management and leadership skills. Using one of our topic discussion guides, you gather with a small group of peers or direct reports to spend 90 minutes working through the topic one page at a time. Each page has the content and questions to drive your thinking forward and improve your management and leadership skills.
World renowned thinkers such as Mintzberg, Schein, Adler, Ulrich, and over 30 more have captured their ideas and pedagogy on a broad range of topics in our 75 themed discussion guides. These guide your management learning sessions, beginning with reflective discussions on personal experiences and ending with new insights and learnings. Individual managers use these during 90 minute self-guided sessions. Organizations use these as the foundation for innovative leadership training and change management programs.
