Program Overview

Thinking critically is more about imparting a set of skills and habits than about teaching bits of theory, while at the same time aimed at decisions about what to do. As industry practitioners and business professionals, this practice is helpful in establishing sound basis for problem solving and decision making. Of the best practices that can be applied in this practice, associational thinking is the way the brain processes information through integrating patterns, seeing contextual relationships, connecting seemingly unrelated events, and three-dimensional mental modelling. Characterized by the brain’s rapid, fluid, cross-disciplinary ability to select and apply the appropriate thinking combination to the situation.

Particular for risk management practitioners, risk evaluation will require critical thinking to weigh on those which needs to be prioritized based on the company’s strategic, tactical and operational goals.

This two-day training features activities and discussion topics to prompt and encourage reflection on thinking and reasoning, while grasping the fundamentals and theories of critical and structured thinking.
