The discussion will center on the following tools and techniques and how they can be optimized to ensure your company’s success:
• How to navigate through ambiguity and uncertainty to balance imagination with critical and analytical thinking;
• How to utilize techniques like Mind Mapping and PERT to visualize ideas, organize tasks, and transform them into action;

• What are some of the pitfalls to avoid and lessons learned.
