Strategic Blindspots

Métayer, Estelle

Is your decision making guided by assumptions which are out of touch or out of date?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


Our 90-minute discussion modules are intended to be printed out and used by a team of 5 or 6 managers meeting in person or phone/video call. One of the managers acts as the facilitator, or a internal or external facilitator/coach supports the session.

World renowned thinkers such as Mintzberg, Schein, Adler, Ulrich, and over 40 more have captured their ideas and pedagogy on a broad range of topics in our 75 discussion modules. These contain the content and questions to guide your sessions, beginning with reflective discussions on personal experiences and ending with new insights and learnings. Organizations use these as the foundation for innovative leadership training and change management programs.
