Critical Thinking India

History has it that people who have exhibited ability to differentiate fact from opinion, shun personal biases while problem solving, and take decisions objectively have been great leaders. Today these people are acknowledged to be critical thinkers as well.

The success of an organization depends on the quality of the thinking and the decisions made by everyone for the business. Organizations that are able to attract, retain and develop the best critical thinkers have a significant and measurable competitive advantage in the business world.

When more than 400 senior HR professionals were asked in an SHRM survey conducted in US, to name the most important skill their employees will need in the next five years, critical thinking ranked the highest – surpassing innovation or the application of information technology. Similar results were noticed in Pearson TalentLens’s survey conducted in India. Such responses reflect that the business community today has accepted the importance of this higher order thinking skill and deems it as the most important requirement for the contemporary workforce.

Effective leaders have never been in greater demand and critical thinking skills never so sought after. The Critical Thinking India blog is an online meeting place that offers discussions, resources and learning to help you stay on top of sophisticated decision making and problem solving as a professional and gain the critical thinking edge in the 21st century workplace.
