Strategic Planning

SGRI Copyright 2007

Participants will learn how to conduct a SWOT analysis and use that information to make decisions about priorities and the direction of the department/organization and how to identify what a department or organization envisions for its future and develop the necessary procedures and operations to achieve that future.  As resources grow increasingly precious, planning the use of those resources to specifically support your organization's mission and vision becomes critical. A strategic plan serves as a roadmap, guiding the entire unit toward identified accomplishments through the years. It helps bypass unnecessary scenic tours; it shows how to accommodate road side rest stops with unexpected emergencies; and it identifies resources that could be used to address the issue, as well as the consequences of diverting those resources from their original intent. In short, Strategic Planning takes business planning to a whole new level.  This course achieves the following objectives:
