DescriptionDevelop a strategic plan to achieve results.
Strategy involves looking up from day-to-day business to look at the future. To make a strategy work, an organization needs managers at all levels who understand the planning process, know what it means to think and act strategically, and can implement the process in their own work units - aligning the work and the workers with the strategic goal. Gain the necessary skills to examine your external environment and driving forces in the near and longer term, and understand how they affect your core business strategy, operational and financial goals, and people-centered processes.
