Strategy Training

Thinka’s ‘Craft Strategy’ Workshop

Strategy design has never been more agile and dynamic. With the future of work showing just how quickly we need to adapt, move and change – strategy design can’t be a one-off, stagnant task. There must be flexibility that allows for responding to changing contexts, new trends and evolving technologies. Disruption is the new normal.

What you’ll explore

  • Reading the data: trends and influences
  • Strategic thinking: key skills for leaders
  • Strategy design: what it is and what it isn’t
  • Collaborating on strategy: techniques
  • A bias to action: operationalising strategy

What you’ll apply

  • An ability to read, analyse and use data
  • Skills in critical thinking, creativity and synthesis
  • Strategy design for the ‘real world’
  • Techniques for leveraging diversity of thought
  • An ability to move strategy into action

Ben from Thinka has an inner drive coupled with a visionary motivation that drives himself and those around him to excel. I have had the fortune to work with Ben on two separate occasions and each time found myself giving more than I thought I had and receiving more than I thought I needed.

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.


    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.

    This audience includes executive leaders who are driving the more visionary and strategic areas of the business. The skills are geared toward building capability in innovation, operationalising strategy and working with ‘middle management’ to cascade information. Leaders must be advanced in their development to truly benefit from working with these skills.

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
