Strategic Planning for Managers

Train Your Managers and Leaders to Think and Act Strategically

Managers and leaders are required to think and plan strategically, but many times fail to do so simply because they have not been trained on a strategic planning process. 

When managers don’t allocate time for strategy, they get caught up managing day-to-day operations of the business, which can negatively affect both the manager and company’s success by not planning ahead for future challenges or long-term goals.

By investing in KerrHill’s strategic planning workshop, you will learn how to think, plan and execute strategically. You will identify point pressure points that affect the business, set realistic strategic goals, and develop strategic initiatives that can be implemented immediately.

By learning these new skills, you will be better able to align and support executives with corporate strategy.

“Operational focus keeps you in business today, strategic goals keep you in business tomorrow.”
