Webinar Description

In this session, you will explore the importance of strategic thinking and what it means to be truly “strategic” before you begin the typical planning process. You will also have the opportunity to learn some theory around organizational planning. And best of all – you will come away with tips on how to build ownership and commitment, resulting in a plan that is closely followed, versus one that collects dust!
