The script for presentation on strategic thinking:
Matter MannerHi, I’m--------------------------------
I daily plan my daily activities whichrequire a lot of contemplation on my part.I need to think about different strategies inorder to smoothen them. Everyone needsto do the same. Don’t you think so?As I’ve said that strategic thinking is thepart and parcel of my life since it bringsadvantages in the form of increased rate of success, it can be a nice idea to share itwith you. Are you ready?
Introduction:
You know well that if you want to reachthe destination where you want to go, youhave to choose the path that leads to it. If there is more than one path, you’ve achoice about determining which way togo? You would think about the path whichis safe and, at the same time, time saving.Then you take all the logistics required forthe journey. Then you’ve a map perhaps orsome magnetic needle to show you thedirection, in case you loose your pathwhile diverting away from it for a whilefor drinking water present in the nearby jungle. This way you preplan your journeyby means of choosing a better path andnecessary requirements in order to besuccessful in reaching your destination.This is what we call preparing a strategyfor the journey. And the thinkingassociated with it is regarded as strategicthinking. Right? If the path is right, youwould reach your destination successfully.[Teacher introduces himself][Teacher introduces the topic][Teacher asks a question]Why do you think so?[the student attempts to answer][The teacher used appropriate accent,intonation and gestures in order toconvince his message forcefully orconvincingly.][Teacher asks a question]
 
Which logistics are required forthe journey?
 
What’s the use of the map?[Teacher asks a question]What if the path is wrong?[Teacher shows the first slide]
 
This shows that the means of reaching thedestination is as important as thedestination.This is what Swami Vivekananda said acentury ago. A wrong path always leads usastray. That’s why strategic thinking holdsimportance since it shows a right path or acorrect alternative way to reach yourdestination_ i.e. your success to be precise.Today, we are going to learn strategicthinking with its meaning, its drivers andthe resources _ viz. Money, Time, People,Equipment, Skills_
 
that form an importantdriver of this kind of thinking.Strategic thinking means,
“Systematical
 
planning
 
for
 
the
 
future”.
 
It
 
indicates
 
the
 
awareness of_1.
 
Where you are going2.
 
Why you are going3.
 
How you are going.We should have strategic thinking forreducing mistakes and errors while doingsome action with a specific purpose andincreasing success rate by means of planning
.
This kind of thinking is usedwhile planning strategic plans for thefuture, and involves many brains thatwork together to determine what toachieve, how to achieve, within howmuch time, using what and how manyresources and so on. It connects todaywith tomorrow in an organized way andsets a course of systematic action(s). Thiscalls for a lot of brain-storming,approximate consensus and collectivedecision-making.
There are four drivers of strategicthinking. They are:

Values4.
 
Assumptions
[yours and yourorganization’s]Let’s deal with them one by one.
1.
 
Vision:
Do you ever daydream? I hope notghosts or fairies as I used to in mychildhood. Do you ever think_ whileyou daydream_ about somethingthat you want to achieve oraccomplish in your life as a finalgoal for self-fulfillment? This iscalled vision. Vision is the finalaccomplishment which is imaginedand decided by the team. Visionpaves way to the mission of theteam which ultimately is responsibleof formation of principles, priorities,rules and regulations for the overallteam functioning or proceedings.This stimulates thinking about theirformation by collective discussionleading towards mutual consensus.Remember that without vision, theleader and his team cannot move ina proper direction and, thus, leadsitself astray.
