CSAC Institute – Thinking Strategically in Trying Times (363)
New ways to think and work through enduring problems
This intense seminar discusses the challenges of strategic agility with the critical, enduring problems counties face. The focus is on the art of possibilities. Participants examine separating probabilities (what’s likely to happen) from possibilities (what could happen) and applying concepts of creative and strategic thinking to find different paths to solutions.The conversation provides strategies to question assumptions; identify the environmental issues; distinguish strategies from tactics; use team resources, and structure learning from experience.
Instructor Dr. Rich Callahan is associate professor of management at the University of San Francisco. He brings practical experience working with elected officials in leadership practices.
