Strategic Public Leadership: Comprehensive Strategic Plans

“Good luck is the result of good planning,” reads the fortune inside the Chinese cookie.  Being clear on where you want to head and how you will get there is key to positioning yourself and your organization for success.

 

How can your public sector organization best benefit from having a strategic plan?  What is important for you to understand before you get started?  What should you consider as you begin to plan?  Who should be involved in helping you plan, and how can that input be helpful?  What components are important to include in your plan? 

 

This hands-on workshop spurs your ideas and jump-starts your planning so you can return home with a framework to begin.  Topics include:

 

  • Consider what type of planning approach is right for your situation
  • Learn a model for strategic planning and approaches that  maximize success
  • Explore and apply tools and exercises for developing various key plan elements
  • Assess whether you are ready to undertake a planning effort
