Strategic Business Management skills

Project managers can be GREAT at strategic planning – if they know the tools and techniques. Over the past two years, presenter Jim Craig  has led two organizations through the process of developing five-year strategic plans. Jim will share practical tools and techniques that are universally used in leading strategic planning initiatives. Whether you work with a small company or a major corporation, knowing the basics strategic planning will enhance your value as a project manager.
