About the course

Strategic planning is best done when a company looks at its past, present, and future in light of its related environment. It is the process of thinking about the company and its related environment as an integrated whole. A process during which an executive "planning team" is organized to consider three key questions on a continuous basis:

  • What is our business?
  • Where do we wish to arrive, and when?
  • How do we get from here to there?

If you are implementing your strategic planning in an organizational environment that is already employee-oriented, with a high level of trust, you start the strategic planning implementation with a huge plus. An additional plus is an organization that already thinks strategically.

Unfortunately, the implementation of strategic planning most frequently occurs as an organization moves from being traditionally reactionary to strategic. So, often, learning to think strategically is part of the strategic planning implementation learning curve.

Having a dynamic team and with proper leadership qualities in the team will make it easier for the organization to implement and execute the strategy plan developed for the organization.

This is what is learn during the training program for developing, implementation and execution plans in a systematic way using the Model taught.
