Course Overview

Employee contribution to an organization can take one of three forms: Thinking, Implementing, and Connecting. Sansi (三思) is a structured three- stage approach to holistically develop the Thinking process.

There are three stages to developing the mind of the leader and manager. They are:

1. Logical Thinking (2D)

2. Layeral Thinking (3D)

3. Strategic Thinking (4D).

This programme is for developing the first stage of Sansi- The Logical Thinking process.

Logical Thinking deals with established situations with generally fixed parameters. In such a convergent situation, the objective is to systematize processes and optimize gains (Kaizen).
