Strategic thinking (also online)

You can start in October.


Strengthen your organization, fit for the future

  • Make concrete and active contributions to your organization's strategy 
  • Form a compelling vision using proper scenarios of the future  
  • Translate your ideas into concrete actions and interventions

Target audience

As a manager, consultant, or entrepreneur you see your organization in a broader context. You recognize the importance of making strategic choices for the future. But you also know that you cannot just pull that future out of a top hat. That is why you need a strong theoretical basis on which you learn to build a concrete strategy simultaneously.

Virtual classes or classes on location: you make the choice

Our main goal is that you continue your development by attending trainings, in a way that suits you best. As of June 1, you can opt to enroll in a training on location. We will make sure the training environment is safe, taking into account the rules that are set out by our government regarding hygiene and safety. You can read all about these measures here: https://www.sn.nl/over-schouten-en-nelissen/coronamaatregelen/.

If you prefer to train virtually, we cater to this wish as well. In our Virtual Classroom you will meet your trainer and co-participants. We have made one alteration: a training that is originally planned in one day, will be divided into two sessions of 4 hours each. This way you will not spend a whole day behind your computer and it will ensure you stay fit and alert. After your final registration in our systems, the extra session of 4 hours will be planned by the trainer, in consultation with you and the other participants in your group.

We guarantee you will get the same quality and results from a virtual training, as you would have obtained by training on location. For more information please check: www.sn.nl/opleidingen-en-trainingen/virtual-classroom-en. Should you have any additional questions, please contact us at 0418 688 510) or at voorlichting@sn.nl. We’d be happy to help you.

You will learn this in Strategic thinking (also online)

In a fast-changing business environment, strategic thinking is a strong and invaluable skill to increase your chances of success. Starting from a theoretical framework, you will learn to analyse and reflect on the past and present of orga¬nizations and develop a strong vision for the future. In the training you will work on a current business case from your own organization. 

During the second day, you will conduct an external analysis to complete the final picture of the starting position. This is the basis for scenario planning, identification of uncertainties and scenario dimensions. You will learn how to develop different scenarios and to apply them to make your own business idea stronger and more future proof. From there you will sort and assess the ideas and develop a compelling vision for the future. The course will conclude with a roadmap for the future with tangible steps for action.

The following subjects are covered:  

  • Strategy management in a VUCA world

Programme

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.

Course days

The total duration of the training course is 6 weeks. The training course consists of an online kick-off and 2 blocks of 1 day. Your time investment is approximately two hours of self study a week: theoretical and practical through the MijnSN learning community.

Block 1 and 2

  • 1 day from 9.30 AM till 5.00 PM

You train virtual? Then we modify the course days: a training that original takes one day, will be virtual in two days of 3,5 hours.
