Become more strategic! 

Research shows that the next generation of leaders must be able to deliver on three demands:

 (1) the ability to think strategically, (2) an understanding of the parts of the business and how those parts fits together, and (3) an ability to drive change.

This 8 PDU interactive course will help you understand that strategic thinking is an individual promotable competency and not a synonym for strategic planning. It will make you better able to work with executives to create value. It includes movie clips that illustrate the principles of strategic thinking and agile thinking, and driving change through organizations.

This new, cutting-edge advanced seminar will help you work more effectively with strategic concepts. Your seminar experience will cover:

  • Strategic thinking as individual style of thinking, composed of six elements
  • What strategy is and isn’t (hint: it’s not goal setting or a strategic plan)
  • How to identify (and generate) strategic insights
  • A practical understanding of business acumen and strategic acumen
  • How strategic thinking is different from strategic planning, and why you need to first master strategic thinking
  • How to recognize good (versus bad) strategy
  • How to encourage the collaboration of strategic thinkers into coherent strategy and then into a strategic plan document
  • A plan/roadmap for enhancing standard project management concepts into strategic thinking competencies
  • Your personal development plan

The course facilitated as an interactive-learning experience, and includes video clips from popular movies that illustrate the principles of strategic thinking, strategy, and driving change through organizations.

The course facilitator is Greg Githens, PMP, a highly-experienced strategy coach and seminar leader who is well known to the PMI Tampa Bay Chapter. Greg has helped many project and program managers develop strategic thinking tools and attitude. These individuals have then been able to help their organizations turn strategic intent into strategic results.
He is skilled at identifying the “crux of the matter”, building alignment in people that enables them to get the tough work done, and fostering an integrated, innovative approach. Greg enjoys sharing his expertise with others and says, “I want to make an impact.” 

Here is what your peers have said about Greg’s approach:

  • “It was validating for me to find out that I was – in fact – thinking strategically in my job”
  • “I need to learn how to better tolerate ambiguity.”
  • “I got several flashes of insight: How could I step back and think? How could I be more strategic at work, rather than just execute?”
  • “Fantastic presentation skills .. insightful, rich, and thought-provoking. A cut above from the typical watered down PPT deck! Presentation were tailored to the time allotted, not simply compressed.”
