Why is/ Critical Thinking/ so Critical?

Critical thinking skills are more important than ever in today’s fast-paced business world. In an age where information is readily available and constantly changing, the ability to think critically and make informed decisions is essential for success.

Critical thinking allows individuals to analyze information objectively, weigh the pros and cons of different options, and make decisions based on evidence and logical reasoning. This skill is especially important for businesses, as it helps leaders and employees alike to make strategic decisions that are in the best interest of the company.

In today’s global market, businesses must be able to adapt to rapidly changing conditions and make quick, decisive decisions. Without the ability to think critically, businesses may miss out on opportunities or make costly mistakes.

Ultimately, critical thinking skills are vital for success in today’s modern business world. These skills enable individuals to make informed decisions, adapt to changing conditions, and avoid being swayed by bias or misinformation.

By fostering a culture of critical thinking, businesses can position themselves for success in today’s fast-paced global market.

KT – The Leader in Critical Thinking Skill Development

Our Experience - Your Success

The future of work is a flexible, adaptable, and resilient workforce

By focusing on employee concerns, companies can take specific measures to help build resilience and value in today's new normal.

Agility in decision making protects your organization

We work within an environment of rapid change that requires an agile, flexible workforce. Within an organization, a shared process for decision making clarifies how a good decision is made and how to go about doing it. It can support simple, day-to-day decisions and can be scaled up to consider a wide array of objectives and involve input from many people.

Don't wait to plan your major incident response

In organizations that rely heavily on IT systems, major incidents don’t occur too often but when they do, a rapid, planned response is critical. For major incidents, the cost of the impact far exceeds the cost of resolution, and the key success factors are response time and the quality of the response to the issue.

As of October 2017, 85 of the 130+ Yanfeng personnel who had completed the PSDM course during the year had submitted their projects and had been certified. Over 130 tracked-and-closed projects had generated a per-project average of $10,000.
