The 6 Elements of Strategic Thinking

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strategic thinking involves several different components. These components include:

1. Anticipation – the ability and use of peripheral vision, the ability to think three or more moves ahead

2. Challenge – the act of questioning, reframing, digging into the roots of a matter

3. Interpret – being able to figure out patterns from multiple data sources

4. Decide – the act of taking a stand, balancing speed and quality in making a determination

5. Align – get all interested parties, all stakeholders with their divergent views to come together

6. Learn – the ability to use failures and successes as resources, debrief and adjust thinking action to match changing circumstances
