Well considered strategic planning contributes to the sustainable functioning of both public and private organisations. Strategic Planning focuses on the future, ways to set appropriate goals and the steps to move towards these goals.
This five-day course takes a multidisciplinary approach that recognises the many different strands of strategic planning in modern local government. It will explore the origins of strategic planning, the context it’s operating within, the legislative and organisational frameworks and ways it can support the sustainable functioning of public and private organisations. Students will benefit from an expanded understanding of strategic planning approaches and tools to utilise and an increased capacity for strategic thinking.
