IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the Spring 2021 Semester section will be held online as we prioritize distance learning in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Planning in today’s competitive environment is a critical skill that determines the overall success or failure of any business endeavor. A good plan requires a sound foundation based on customer demand. Ultimately this can determine the success of not only your project, but by extension, your company and your future employment.
During this interactive workshop, we will examine strategic planning tools and methodologies, their strengths, weaknesses and application to overall portfolio management.
This workshop is geared to project managers who are dealing with the challenges of long-range strategic planning in our evolving virtual, global business environment. Project managers preparing for the PMP exam who want to hone their skills in the strategic planning area will also find this workshop of benefit.
This workshop was previously titled Strategic Planning Seminar.
