In the book we will learn about strategic thinking how to apply it as a key skillset for making change happen. We examine the Growth Mindset and how to focus on outcomes. The Strategic Thinking Framework provides structure to the joined-up thinking we need to make our change strategies robust.

We then explore how to design change strategy, understanding its drivers and fundamentals, and how it connects corporate strategy, transformations and change management. The book ends with exploration of the Kotter and McKinsey 7S Models and where they are useful.
