Description:“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.” —Alan Lakein
Strategic planning initiatives across all organizational sectors often fail because leaders design them around a desired end result without first clearly defining the current reality. In this webinar, you’ll first learn how to conduct a systems analysis to ground your strategy. Then, through concrete examples, you will hear how you can use systems thinking tools to provoke deep levels of thinking and dialogue about the vision you want to achieve. More important, you’ll understand how to develop strategic plans to move from where you are to where you want to be that are streamlined, customer-focused, and capable of producing lasting change.
The purpose of this webinar is to introduce an innovative response that enables leaders to cultivate and sustain both their energy and their focus in order to spend their limited time more productively.
In this webinar, you will:
Learn a user-friendly strategic planning process
Hear how to apply systems thinking tools to align your systemic structures and vision
Take away strategies for beginning to shift an entrenched system
