At our Virtual Business & Leadership Conference, Hutcheson will present Develop a Successful Strategic Plan from a Distance.

Strategic Planning is important to all organizations because it provides a sense of direction and outlines measurable goals, guides day-to-day decisions and provides a baseline to and evaluating progress and changing approaches when moving forward.

Attempting to create, communicate and execute a strategic plan from a distance changes some of the dynamics of successfully completing this process. There are different considerations to take into account, different tools that could and should be used, and changes in the numbers and levels of an organization’s people that are involved at the various stages of the process. This session will attempt to outline the strategic planning process and changes necessary to successfully perform the strategic planning process from a distance.
