NIU’s Civic Leadership Academy will host a Nov. 4 workshop on “Strategic Planning: Yes, Now is the Time!”
This workshop is a “guided tour” of the practical techniques and fundamental principles of the strategic planning process. It specifically focuses on developing skills and understanding the power of analyzing current organizational situations, laying out long- and short-range objectives, developing implementation plans and building an effective follow-up policy decision framework for an organizational strategic plan.
Topics will include environmental scanning, problem identification, SWOT analyses, strategy formulation, implementation planning and various sub-elements of the process, such as the construction of scenarios.
Workshops are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at NIU-Naperville. Continental breakfast, buffet lunch and afternoon snack are included in the registration fee.
