SME's Strategic Planning Course has provided me with the knowledge and the tools to help guide my Community in their Strategic Planning. It has been a challenge to collect opinions and feedback from the stakeholders however with the sample agenda's, templates and instruction we are now able to approach the strategic planning with confidence and the discussions are not too complex for anyone that does not have any previous training in strategic planning. It will take the whole process to a whole new level with your organization! I would definitely recommend this Strategic Planning Course for any organization whether starting out or whether you are a different stage of your company's Strategic Planning. Anthony delivers clear and concise instruction of the content. I am very glad to have taken this course and looking forward to adding it to my portfolio.
