Training Seminar Outline

Advanced Preparation: None
Level: Basic Prerequisite: None
Field of Study: Business Management & Organization
CPE*: 2.0 credits


Most organizations invest significant time and money to develop their strategic plans, identify their strategic objectives and create initiatives and timelines that lead to greater success and impact. With strategic planning, there always is some element of change — especially as organizations look to continue their growth and relevance in a particular industry.

However, few (if any) give much thought to how their organizations will prepare for change, manage change in the moment and combat resistance to any changes that might occur as a result of strategic planning initiatives.

In this seminar, we will help attendees understand the impact of change on strategic planning and explain how the elements of change can positively impact those strategic initiatives. Facilitators will walk participants through the thought leadership necessary to successfully navigate stakeholder engagement; the development of strategic objectives; key indicators of success; major, forward-thinking initiatives; and actionable timelines while assessing change readiness and managing change, communication and transparency and resistance.

Learning objectives:

  1. Explore strategic leadership/thought/planning.
  2. Understand how and why to execute a change readiness assessment, change management initiatives and a resistance management plan.
  3. Discuss collaboration between strategic planning and change management.
