Business Planning

Course Overview

For any organisation to succeed, regardless of their size, it is important that the leaders have a clear idea of their company vision and overall mission, as well as a strategy to enable them to get there. Additionally it is important that the leaders can communicate the plan effectively, in a way that is transparent, and not open to misunderstanding. The theory of planning and objective-setting cascades down in larger organisations with each department or local area responsible for setting its own short and longer-term plans which have to fit in to the larger organisational strategy.

This course has been developed to enable anyone in a leadership role understand the importance of effective planning and to teach them some strategic tools that will support their ability to develop robust business plans, and be able to communicate them effectively.
