On Friday September
23rd, Brigadier Herbert- D HCSC and Dep Commandant JSCSC, delivered
the welcome address to the first of a series of workshops and masterclasses
being run by the Defence Thinking Skills Programme. The programme, which is a
joint Cranfield University/Shrivenham Leadership Centre initiative, originated
in 2013 with the aim to enhance human capabilities across Defence through
encouraging “thinking about thinking”.
Whilst academic research
underpins the programme, considerable effort has been taken to develop a range
of tools, techniques and concepts which can encourage and support enhanced
thinking on a practical level. The workshop was designed to provide delegates
with the knowledge and confidence to develop thinking on both a personal and
organisational level, supported by an online portal and thinking skills
The series of workshops
(open to all) and masterclasses (aimed at OF5 and above) are running from Oct 16th to Mar 17th and further details and an application form can be found below.
