As General Dwight Eisenhower famously stated, “plans are useless but planning is indispensable.” Understanding how to plan for – and navigate – the future is essential for leaders from all fields.

SMI’s Operational Planning Course is a unique program which teaches attendees the tactics and strategies necessary to design an effective process to determine and achieve milestones for success within their organization.

This intensive two-day program is taught by former senior leaders, from both the public and private sectors, and focuses on answering the questions:

  •  Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be?
  •  How do we get there?
  • How do we measure our progress?

Emphasis is placed on clearly defining – and measuring – objectives, as is the importance of remaining flexible and understanding the value of contingency planning.
