Strategic Planning for Impact



OVERVIEW

We can positively influence patterns of future growth and change for communities through effective strategic planning. Strategic planning is the reason why some places are better than others. Effective strategic planning helps create great cities, towns and regions which are:

  • Sustainable
  • Liveable
  • Prosperous
  • Healthy
  • Fulfilling

Attendees complete this one day course with a straightforward understanding of the steps and skills needed for effective strategic planning. Effective strategic planning is a research based process, which forecasts the issues and constantly monitors the process to ensure trust is built in a two way conversation with the community and maintained through outcomes. The training style is open and conversational to maximise learning outcomes.

In addition to his professional experience, throughout the program the Course Director draws the experience of attendees in both their capacity as professionals and members of the community. 

The program identifies the keys to success and the common failings of strategic planning, encouraging an open dialogue on common planning issues. 

Consideration is given to taking forward the outputs of a strategic plan and preparing these outputs for translation into a planning scheme. This course is useful for both planners who are looking for a refresher on strategic planning and non-planners who would like to incorporate strategic planning principles into their designs and consulting.
