October 15, 2016

Registration for the upcoming CSPS Executive Development Workshop Series in Strategic Foresight and Strategic Planning is now available through the Centre for Strategic and Policy Studies (CSPS).

The series of workshop is aimed to help organisations formulate a state-of-the-art strategic plan for the growth of an organisation.

In a press statement yesterday, the centre said that is is welcoming participation from CEOs, managers, decision-makers, policy makers from both government and private sectors to join this executive workshop series to become an expert in systems strategic planning and to achieve competency in the use of future methodologies and horizon scanning for organisational transformation.

The first workshop titled “Strategic Foresight & Horizon Scanning” will be held from November 22 - 24, followed by a workshop on “Strategic Planning Using Systems Thinking” on January 17 - 19, 2017.

There will also be Applied Project for a period of two months, and a third workshop on “Action Learning and Evaluation” on March 21-22, 2017.

With the establishment of CSPS Brunei Futures Initiative (BFI), this workshop combines Strategic Foresight and Horizon Scanning into the Strategic Planning exercise to give organisations a head start in solving not only today’s problems, but also towards creating a preferred future scenario.

The workshop will be facilitated by international and local experts in Strategic Foresight, Horizon Scanning and Strategic Planning: Professor Sohail Inayatullah (Unesco Chair in Future Studies), Dr. Jose Ramos (Action Foresight, Australia), Stephen Lin (Haines Centre for Strategic Management, Singapore), Dr Ivana Milojevic (Metafuture Australia and CSPS), Dr Diana Cheong, Dr Sophiana Chua Abdullah and Yuzilawati Abdullah (CSPS).

These highly skilled facilitators will be offering both local and international perspectives and bring with them proven track records of working with governments and businesses in Brunei and around the world over several decades.

Using an interactive and action learning approach, the workshop will provide participants with techniques that will optimise their ability to understand the impact of the external environment and to crystallise and clarify visions and preferred futures for their organisations.

Participants will then use the ‘10-step Systems Planning Model’ to prepare strategic action plans and learn how to drive implementation and transformation.

The workshop series concludes with participants sharing their experiences and lessons learned from the implementation of their action plans and obtaining professional evaluations of their strategic plans.

Upon successful completion, participants will be awarded a certificate of competence by CSPS and Haines Centre for Strategic Management, Asia.
