Prof. Dr. Celeste Wilderom, University of Twente
Yes, this is the only course in the world where you learn the key to understanding any firm and any industry and, more importantly, how to apply that key in practice. This is what sets you on a path toward truly mastering the art of what can be sensibly called strategic wisdom. What you get: almost 4 hours of professional video tutorials divided over the sections PRACTICE, THEORY and EXPLORE, many explanatory screencasts, a 30-page downloadable ready-to-use generic analysis template, the published article on how all financial parameters in business relate and TWO YEAR access to all material. Still in doubt? Then go to the bottom of this page and request the COURSE OUTLINE for this course. Price includes VAT & VAT Invoice will be provided.
Why an introductory course? Because it provides a high-level overview of the new theory and revolutionary method that enables you to observe the business world better, to make better sense of what you observe ('What does it all mean?'), and to better apply that knowledge in practice to improve strategic decision making (...which constitutes strategic wisdom). This course introduces the basics of the unifying theory and shows you how all business world information can be logically divided over the three phases in the thinking process: OBSERVATION, SENSEMAKING & ENVISIONING. This introductory course presents our promise and provides many downloads. Combined, they give you a small taste of the depth and breadth of the new stuff you will learn at The Strategy Academy.

We thought decades about what constitutes 'strategic wisdom'. Both in theory and - more importantly - in everyday practice. In multiple publications in prominent scientific journals and blogs we present our ideas, and discuss how they relate to strategy teaching and strategy consulting. Two open access journal articles and four blogs are featured below.
The World Economic Forum states critical thinking, judgment and decision making are all Top Ten skills for the 21st century.
The Strategy Academy carefully guides you in developing and growing precisely these skills.
In 2017, Roeland van Straten was awarded a PhD for developing the first scientifically-based unifying theory in the strategic management field. From it he derived a method and tool that closely resemble the 'full solution for business schools' that was famously specified in theoretical terms by Nobel Prize winner Herbert Simon in 1967. Ever since, strategy scholars have been looking for an actionable interpretation of this solution. It is now offered by The Strategy Script's unique statement-making paradigm and method.
