About the training

Having a good strategic plan to guide your organisation, keep you focused on your vision for change and help you prioritise your valuable time and resources is a real key to success. But many organisations struggle to find the time to plan, or develop plans that are quickly forgotten and left to gather dust on a shelf. This training will help you take a refreshing look at how to make strategic plans which are engaging, relevant and useful
