Clarity in Communications

A one-day program that focuses on structured thinking.

 

Clarity in Communications is a one-day program that teaches you how to use logic and structure when communicating a point of view, such as a conclusion or recommendation, after analysing the problem you are trying to solve. You will be introduced to classic problem solving and synthesis methodologies as used by consulting firms and business strategy teams.

 

The one-day program is delivered in two parts:

 

1. Part one focuses on classic problem solving. You will learn how to clearly define, disaggregate and solve business issues using logic trees.

2. Part two focuses on creating a logical structure for communications using key storylining concepts that are targeted to the audience. You will synthesise ideas into a compelling business case by learning how to analyse an audience, build an introduction, articulate the governing idea of a storyline, and build and test the supporting logic.

 

You will benefit from attending this program if you:

 

  • Need to increase your productivity and efficiency by significantly reducing the amount of time it takes to analyse problems and communicate the solutions to an audience.
  • Have been asked to present complex problems and solutions onto one page, making it easy to engage with clients, provide feedback to staff and critique each other’s work.
  • Need to provide clearer and easy-to-read documents in a format that your clients will often use themselves and understand.
  • Want to use a common language and set of tools for all to use.
