The "Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D." philosophy is a strategic thinking framework designed to help prepare the next generation of thought-leaders for a complicated world. By using this framework, you will learn BETTER, learn FASTER and learn MORE than you are used to.
We operationalized this framework through the aid of seven (7) dice to give a “touch-and-feel” of the philosophy. The statements / prompts / questions appearing on each of the seven dice have been statistically determined. The “Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D.” framework has proven so useful that real organizations are using it to help their senior management and board of directors open up the ALTERNATIVES to better deal with their UNSOLVED problems, issues and challenges."
The F.O.C.U.S.E.D dice are designed based on an extensive survey carried out with 400+ business students at our Faculty of Business and feedback from practitioners on what our students need to do to help take their learning to the next level. The key findings culminated in the importance of the “Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D.” philosophy where each letter represents a critical competency much sought-after in the real world today:
"F" - Bring Fresh Perspective
"O" - Think, feel and act like an Owner/ Manager
"C" - Show Connected-thinking
"U" - Have a Sense of Urgency
"S" - Show Team SPIRIT
"E" - Always Engage
"D" - Exercise Deliberate Practice
