The Power of Peripheral Vision in Strategic Thinking

Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D.

Most problems, issues and challenges remain unsolved because we end up resorting to our past habitual attempts without being mindful of new ways of thinking and new ways of doing. This programme will showcase an innovative new strategic thinking framework that is designed to make you think more deeply and peripherally about your organisation’s UNSOLVED problems, and in the process, open up alternatives not contemplated before. This framework will guide you to see things differently, so that you see different things.

The overall workshop will use the F.O.C.U.S.E.D. Dice framework, to help open participants’ thinking about complex issues. This strategic thinking tool is invented by Dr. Robert Wright to nurture a habit-of-mind designed to improve the thinking and practice of management. Each letter represents different key behaviours:

F - Bring fresh perspective
O - Think, feel and act like an owner/ manager
C - Show connected-thinking
U - Have a sense of urgency
S - Show team SPIRIT
E - Always engage
D - Exercise deliberate practice

The workshop will be highly interactive and will require all participants to come prepared to engage (and learn to improvise in this unique learning environment). Participants will be inspired by speakers with extensive experience in teaching, research and consultancy in the field of strategic thinking. Individual participants or client organisations are encouraged to organise follow-up activities after the programme to take advantage of the momentum to further strengthen the team.
