A group of people look at papers with sticky notes laid out on a table.

Successfully navigate the challenges inherent in making your organizational, departmental, and project-specific plans come to life.

What You'll Learn

Having a strategic plan doesn’t guarantee that you will succeed in achieving your goals, much less sustain them. Once you have your strategy, the crucial question is what do you do next to achieve your goals?

Designed for managers and leaders responsible for the implementation of strategic plans, this program will help you successfully navigate challenges and provide a guided structure for seamless execution and sustainment of organizational, departmental, and project-specific plans.

A strategic plan is a valuable asset when combined with both guided implementation and a sustainment plan. It’s the engine that will drive your organization toward a goal or successful change initiative. Your strategic plan without execution and sustainment is a wasted effort.

This unique program introduces elements not found in other strategic planning programs, as it provides an end-to-end approach to the strategic planning process at every touchpoint, and bridges the gap between strategy, execution and sustainability. This seminar provides a systematic framework in which structure follows strategy.
