Detailed Course Description

One of the biggest risks an organization faces is the existence of a number of organizational blind spots. Blind spots are areas in which executives fail to notice or understand important information and thus lead their organization into one of any number of traps. These include misjudging industry boundaries, failing to identify emerging competition, falling out of touch with customers, over-emphasizing a competitor’s visible competence, and allowing corporate taboos or lack of foresight to limit their frame of reference. Any one of these mistakes will prevent organizational leaders from taking advantage of the opportunities available to them.

In today's global business world, organizational leaders should assume that all their peers are smart and experienced, but have blind spots just like them. These are automatic behaviors that are not flaws, but they do need to be identified and mitigated by continually asking the right questions as outlined in this course. Otherwise they will undermine organizational performance and may well destroy their legacy when they least expect it. Early learning is a lot easier than a later recovery.

This online course will evaluate various effective and efficient solutions to identify those blind spots and put the processes in-place to ensure awareness and corrective actions are taken. Every organization has its own blind spots. This course will assist you in turning those weaknesses into strategic strengths.
