Course Description

Learn how to use a world class strategic planning framework to achieve alignment in your organization, team or with your community stakeholders. Build enduring agreement or group consensus to solve any issue. The course shows you how to use four powerful ToP facilitation methods on their own or if together, as an integrated approach to strategic planning. The resulting plan is realistic, achievable and easy to monitor. Using any of these four methods on their own, enables you to help a group clearly identify a practical future, or identify key issues to any problem, or be innovative and strategic around solving complex problems, or formulate crisp measurable deliverables to move any project or plan forward. This course clearly strengthens your ability to use the tools you learned in the first prerequisite course.

After taking this two day interactive learning course you will be able to…

  • Align organization members around common goals and strategies
  • Identify well-focused actions that lead to big breakthroughs
  • Enable a group to come to a common shared vision and own the way to achieve this vision
  • Weave together the basic tools to address complex issue or problem or planning requirements
