NewStrategic Planning for an Uncertain Future
Organisations have a duty to look to the future and try to establish how they will need to operate in 5 or 10 years’ time. However many organisations fail to do this because they don’t really know where to start. This course provides a clear model for looking at your organisation and establishing what the future may hold. We will look at a number of angles including: the legal and regulatory framework, changes in society and technology, workforce and economic considerations, global trends and UK changes including Brexit.
This course will include case studies of where strategic planning has worked well, and where it has been ignored with negative effects. There will be an opportunity for delegates to start thinking about strategic planning within their own organisation.
Managers or board members who want to use strategic planning in their own role, or introduce it to the whole organisation/board.
Participants will gain a clear understanding of strategic planning and will have the opportunity to start thinking through the impact on their own organisation. Participants will also be provided with the tools needed to spread the strategic planning methodology within their own organisation or board setting.
