Course Description

We are operating in a VUCAS world – volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous, and speedy. Your organizations need more than a budget to guide them into a successful future post COVID-19 – they need a business GPS. A well prepared strategic plan, just like a GPS, will identify multiple routes to achieve goals, track progress, warn on risks and re-route to avoid obstacles. Unfortunately traditional forecasting is limited in its value – more like a paper map than a GPS. This session will introduce you three different approaches to planning: Mission-based planning, Keep-Stop-Start, and to the process of backcasting – a strategic planning approach that begins with the end in mind.

Learning Objectives

Upon completing this course, you will be able to:
• Identify the characteristics and behaviors of strategic thinking
• Recognize the elements of the Keep-Stop-Start method of planning
• Apply the five-step backcasting process
