Generative Thinking


Organizations of all types face an accelerated pace of change that presents both threats to their existence and amazing opportunities. Before leaders can identify strategic priorities and initiatives, they must be able to use generative thinking mindsets and strategies. This enables them to explore emerging trends so they can gain shared understanding of their meaning, underlying cause, and potential impacts. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to generative thinking concepts as well as strategies for applying this powerful tool to organizational governance.
