WORKSHOP:

STRATEGIC BUSINESS PLANNING

Strategic planning is a formalized, documented organizational management process used to analyze its current situation, set priorities, and to focus resources and energy to achieve and maintain an organization’s competitive advantage. While many organizations understand the importance of strategic planning and spend a great deal of time and money coming up with the strategic plan, it still remains something that is reviewed just once a year or worse - a glossy document that sits on the shelf!

"If you don't know where you are going, you are certain to end up somewhere else." - Yogi Berra

You might be thinking: Is it worth embarking on a strategic planning process? The key to successful strategic planning is to build in measures and implementation steps that allow you to engage your staff and monitor the results at regular intervals. There are many benefits that go along with strategic planning including:

  • Establishes a proactive rather than reactive posture

  • Sets up a sense of direction

  • Increases operational efficiency

  • Helps to increase market share and profitability

  • Makes a business more durable

On completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Develop a clearer understanding of the market in which we operate
