Managers have many responsibilities, including planning, executing, and leading your team. Thinking strategically is also a critical skill to bring the most value to your organization and advance your career. 

Strategic Thinking from Harvard ManageMentor will help you understand the characteristics of strategic thinkers, why thinking creatively is important for this, and how to identify relationships by looking at the big picture, establishing other perspectives, and making connections. These tips, worksheets, and practice scenarios will help strategic thinking become second nature and improve your managerial toolkit.
