Business planning: turning the vision into reality
This course deals with the practical aspects of business planning – those one to three year plans that show what you are actually going to do. You will use a range of proven tools and techniques to understand how to put together a compelling plan.
Starting from your organisation’s strategic position, we will look at the priorities and SMART objectives that turn the vision into reality. Keeping in mind the needs of your beneficiaries or target market, we will review the external environment and how you should respond with new structures, processes and programmes.
In these challenging times, we will examine the changes you want to bring about and choices you will have to make, whilst exploring the financial foundations that will underpin your ability to deliver. We will also look at risks and their management strategies.
Finally, we will consider the role of communication in setting expectations and implementing the plan.
