Strategic plans are necessary for an organization. They help to focus energy and resources on the activities that align with long-term goals and they make an organization more responsive to a changing environment. They also can increase efficiency and reduce costs; improve marketing efforts and organizational development; and manage risk and uncertainty by making the organization more responsive to a changing environment. However, while more than half of today's organizations will create a strategic plan, most fail to see it through.
Strategic Planning 101 helps leaders outline a plan that is relevant to their organization's mission, vision, and values and helps them manage execution throughout the process. The program introduces a logical set of activities or tasks that are grouped into three phases: preparation, development, and implementation of the plan. With a case study to drive home application, this program will help to ensure your organization's managers and leaders gain the know how to begin focusing team efforts to achieve long-term goals.
