What you will learn:
Strategic planning causes organizations to prioritize the resources and results that matter. The act of planning itself is applying the discipline of focus and the practice of inclusivity. It can be complex.
Simplify the strategic planning process with a proven framework: Goal, Objective, Strategy, and Tactic. We will guide your team through each step of the process. We will use the results to create a roadmap that transforms big ideas into meaningful and measurable actions.
Our approach develops strategy and builds buy-in from your team at the same time. Whether you are a high growth enterprise, startup, or nonprofit, our process is designed to cut through clutter and lead to alignment. This process results in building a clear plan for action and growth.
One of the biggest benefits of this course is to align the expectations and the ways of communicating between all levels of the organization, while including diverse voices in the planning process.
