Strategic planning is a tool that is frequently used in organizations; however, often times these plans, though well developed, end up sitting on a shelf collecting dust rather than serving as the catalyst for organizational change. This course will educate you about all the components (e.g., mission, vision, values, goals, guiding principles) needed for a successful plan, the process for developing the plan, how to select the right employees to serve on the strategic planning committee, and discuss the importance of having an outside facilitator.
Participants will engage in exercises to learn how to identify their mission, vision, values and goals and take part in small group discussion that covers past successes and/or barriers in past plans.
The 2-5 day course allows for much more in-depth discussion of the concepts in a strategic plan and will provide for opportunities for participants to practice conducting a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats) analysis and writing mission, vision, value and goal statements.
