The purpose of planning is not to create plans but to create results. There are essential steps in the strategic planning process that can make this a reality for your organization. This perspective, creating results, is the intent of this workshop presented by two experienced SCORE mentors: Michael George and Gene Kroupa. If your organization needs guidance to affirm major directions or to concentrate resources effectively in order to benefit stakeholders, engage volunteers, and expand your impact, then this workshop is for you.
