Ready for a Better Way to Lead Strategic Planning?
Has your experience with strategic planning been positive? Negative? Or ho-hum, just another thing to do? A strategic plan provides direction and focus for an organization to achieve its goals. When done effectively, the strategic plan guides operational planning, performance planning and day-to-day decision making. However, it is often misunderstood and under-utilized.
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Develop an effective strategic planning framework based on best practices
- Identify and collect objective and relevant facts to support decision making
- Assess options to decide on the best course of action
This course uses a creative approach and practical examples to introduce participants to the full strategic planning process, including: the purpose of strategic planning (alignment with vision and goals), situational analysis (external and industry forces, competitors, internal strengths and weakness, risks), developing and assessing options, outlining an implementation plan, reviewing and evaluating results.
Participants will develop practical skills to lead and/or participate in strategic planning in all types of organizations. You will know the pitfalls and how to avoid them!
And like all of our courses, it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. So why not get started now?!
