Certificate in Strategic Planning

£179.00

A solid strategic plan is essential for business success. It should outline your values, mission, vision, strategy, and your plan for getting there.

If you and the people who work with you don’t understand where the company is going, they may all develop their own priorities and actually prevent you from getting where you need to be. Part of getting everyone on board is creating a strategic plan complete with the organization’s values, vision, and mission. Then, there’s the challenge of bringing these principles to life in a meaningful way that people can relate to. This course will help you describe what you want to do and get people where you want to go.
