In this course, you will learn how building and communicating a Strategic Plan will greatly inform and improve the direction of your organization – from annual business planning to proper budgeting, evaluating and more.


Strategic Planning is an integral to any organization, as it sets the overall direction and helps identify the specific activities that will help advance your vision and mission.
