A One Day Strategic Planning Training Course

A strategic planning training course that demystifies the whole process and provides a practical approach to understanding strategy and strategic thinking.

Strategic planning is an essential business management skill: coming up with a vision for a better, brighter future and translating that into a doable strategic plan. At the same time it is a creative and exciting process that takes you beyond the restrictions of current thinking and opens up new possibilities for the future.

This strategic planning course takes the form of a journey through a simple strategic planning process from vision to implementation plan. During the programme you will apply the process to an area in which you wish to think strategically.

Our public course is a one day course. For in-house programmes we offer a one or two day version depending on group size, budget and level of interaction.

Starting February 2016 our Strategic Planning public course will run the day after our Leadership Programme. Book both for a truly inspiring Leadership journey.

It is suitable for all those with strategic planning responsibilities or for those responsible for implementing a strategy handed down from above.
