How to Start a Strategic Plan ($20)
“Before this course I approached strategic thinking using only intuition and experience. After this course I have a scientific structured approach to strategic planning.” - Hassan, Egypt

But if you know how to plan a road-trip, you can lead a strategic plan.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Apply systems thinking to your current context
- Facilitate your team in a de-mystified strategic planning process
