The University of Chicago Booth School of Business Executive Education is excited to announce that its Strategic Thinking – Hong Kong program will return on February 11-12, 2020. This highly sought out program is designed to elevate critical thinking skills and help business executives develop the strategic agility to embrace digital disruption and geopolitical changes in the Asia-Pacific region.

The course helps executives develop the strategic skills to recognize how industry changes are impacting their businesses. Attendees will learn how to assess their current strategy, develop an outcome-based approach to innovation, and acquire the frameworks for analyzing trends. Executives emerge from the program with the tools to manage disruption successfully by making necessary changes to their corporate strategy. The course is taught by Marc Knez, Clinical Professor of Strategic Management at Chicago Booth and Faculty Director of Strategic Thinking.

“In today’s rapidly-changing business environment, executives must have a broad and deep set of strategic thinking skills—both within their areas of operation and at the enterprise level—to succeed and respond effectively to technological change and disruption,” says Knez.

Knez specializes in bridging the gap between academic research and applied decision making in the context of strategic planning and technology strategy. His academic research in strategic decision making focuses on market analysis, strategy development, and organizational structure. His work has appeared in the Harvard Business Review, the Journal of Business, and the Journal of Labor Economics.

Held at the school’s Hong Kong campus—named The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Center— the Strategic Thinking program provides executives with the opportunity not only to strengthen their organization’s competitive advantage, but also to foster professional relationships with other businesses in the Asia-Pacific region through classroom collaboration and networking. This program is being brought back by popular demand and early registration is encouraged. To learn more about Chicago Booth’s Strategic Thinking – Hong Kong Program, visit Chicagobooth.edu/STHK.
