Event description

Description

Business Sherpa Group created the Developing Leaders Series to provide educational sessions to the leaders and senior team members of small and medium enterprises (SME). This includes SMEs in the not-for-profit, owner/operator, technology and other for-profit organizations. Delivered by leadership development experts with broad experience, the Developing Leaders Series sessions will cover the latest content on a range of leadership topics.


Strategic Planning for Your Organization

This is an interactive session and the feedback from previous sessions is that it is useful for all senior managers within an organization. This session will answer the following questions:

  • Why is a Strategic Plan important? What are the benefits?

  • Are Value, Vision and Mission statements required? How important are they?

  • Who should be involved in the process? Should you develop the Plan internally or get external guidance?

  • What are the major phases in the process and what is involved in each phase?

  • What is the Board of Directors role?

  • How does the plan get reviewed, approved and communicated? How do you get buy-in?

  • How often should the Plan be reviewed and updated?
