Strategic Planning & Goal Setting: Setting Focused Goals & Enhancing Competitiveness

Introduction

Effective strategic planning is essential to the success of every organisation. The intent of true Strategic Planning is to be rigid enough to set the proper long-term strategic goals while also performing necessary adjustments with foresight, accuracy and responsiveness. This assures that daily tactical activities have the best chance of delivering strategic intent. If you understand the value of having every one of your employees be able to easily communicate the purpose of their daily activities and how they align to the company’s larger strategic goals, then this is the session for you.
