Program Details:

Most of us move through the day focused on tactical issues.  We have some sort of to-do list that helps prioritize and manage our day.  But what happens when we need to elevate our thinking and look at things Strategically instead of Tactically?  What goes into a Strategic Plan?  Would it be nice to have all of the elements of a Strategic Plan defined, and a roadmap and techniques for creating one laid out for you? 

In this one-hour session you will be presented with a time-tested Strategic Planning process that has been used to successfully develop hundreds of Strategic Plans for municipalities, non-profits, and for-profit entities.  It is scalable and can be focused on the enterprise, division, or departmental level, and it includes all the elements necessary to assemble a Strategic Plan, and it can been used by any sized group.

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of Strategic Planning and why it can be difficult
  • Describe the Strategic Planning Process
  • List, describe, and state the importance of each of the elements of a Strategic Plan
  • Describe some common techniques for reaching group consensus
