Strategic Aptitude Assessment

A static, strategic plan is not enough to drive or sustain success. Organizations need adaptable strategic plans that act as living breathing documents, rather than paperweights.

Our Strategic Aptitude Assessment™ unpacks The 6 Key Elements of Strategic Thinking to help leaders identify and improve their strategic approach to succeed in more than one future.

The 6 Key Elements of Strategic Thinking include:

  1. Anticipate: proactively monitoring the market environment and changes inside and outside your industry
  2. Challenge: questioning organizational and industry-wide assumptions that others take for granted
  3. Interpret: connecting multiple data points in new and insightful ways to make sense of complex, ambiguous situations
  4. Decide: seeking multiple options to ensure flexible decision-making
  5. Align: engaging stakeholders to understand change readiness, manage differences and create buy-in
  6. Learn: continuously reflecting on successes and failures to improve performance and decision-making
