Here are typical training scenarios that you could host at your location or that we could partner to present to affinity groups at a regional location in your area:
FACILITATED STRATEGIC PLANNING AND COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING SESSIONS: Often institutions are looking for a facilitator or trainer who can provide focused training sessions on aspects of developing and implementing strategic plans and related projects for staff and/or volunteers. Our professional staff is skilled in delivering workshops in strategic planning, marketing management, and communications. Your team can learn how write SMART objectives, develop a targeted communications plan, identify performance indicators, or learn to work together as a project team defining and solving problems, establishing objectives, planning, organizing and implementing effective team action.
TEAM-BASED STRATEGIC PLANNING INSTITUTE: Sometimes institutions seek to train an entire team of on-campus planners who will lead the school in a yearlong strategic planning process. To meet this need, we have developed a team training approach that delivers components of the strategic planning process in seven workshop modules which combine presentation with hands-on learning and one-on-one consulting as the team progresses through the planning year. Center specialists serve as team coaches between workshops.
This series of seven leadership workshops takes a campus strategic planning team from inception to implementation over an academic year. Learning outcomes include equipping a core planning team of between five and seven people to carry out basic strategic planning tasks including
Team members will analyze their school’s research data and draw conclusions, interpret and evaluate Symposium results, and develop a complete plan to the initiative level along with implementation strategies. Center specialists critique the plan as the team compiles it. Team members have unlimited access between sessions to consultation and support by phone and email from Center specialists. The Team-Based Strategic Planning Institute schedule is as follows:
Strategic Planning Overview (half day) Before Month 1
Getting Started Workshop (1 day) At the beginning of Month 1
Interim Assessment Workshop 1 (1 day) At the end of Month 2
Interim Assessment Workshop 2 (1 day) At the end of Month 3
