This approach is highly effective in helping you retain what you learn and apply it in your work.

Wide Applicability

The tools you learn can be applied to different types of business situations, from working with innovation teams in large incumbent banks to two-person startup teams at challenger banks and fast developing banks in emerging markets. Having a toolkit that’s adaptable to different environments is a valuable asset in any professional setting.


In conclusion, learning to cultivate your strategic mindset can be a game-changer in your career as a leader.
