“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

Understanding the perspectives and motivations of others – including both adversaries and allies – is key to comprehensively analyzing and responding to issues and events. Learners in the Reframing Structured Analytic Techniques course complete hands-on exercises designed to help them:

  • Develop “strategic empathy” to uncover the desires, needs, motivations, and likely future behaviors of key actors in an event, business relationship, or critical political/military situation
  • Determine the forces and factors external to the problem, event, or situation that most impact it
  • Identify their prevailing mindset about an issue or problem and evaluate its validity

Techniques Explored and Applied: 

  • Red Hat Analysis
  • Outside-In Thinking
  • High Impact-Low Probability Analysis
  • What If? Analysis
  • Classic Quadrant Crunching™
  • Premortem Analysis and the Structured Self-Critique

This is a two-day classroom course, with up to 24 students. Instructor-led classroom learning emphasizes small group exercises.
