Strategic Planning for Executives


  • No dates currently scheduled


Developing a new strategic plan is one of the most common (and essential) ways an organization addresses change. Unfortunately, "wondering what went wrong" is an all-too common follow-up. How do high-performing organizations identify and complete the vital steps between planning and implementation?

This program offered by the Federal Executive Institute (FEI) provides practical skills for leaders in rapidly changing environments. Through large- and small-group discussions and exercises, you will identify changes your organization must undertake to realize its vision. You will learn the best ways to develop, communicate and refresh your organizational vision through engaging your staff, then focusing on methods to evaluate performance on each goal as the change effort initiative progresses.

How You Will Benefit

  • Understand why the beginning of the change process often determines future success
  • Appreciate how leadership can be the critical, primary lever to begin positive organizational change
  • Grasp the importance of developing and articulating a shared vision for the organization
  • Learn how to help your staff do things differently, an essential element in reaching a different result
