Learn how to ensure the long term health of your career, organization, or enterprise. This four class workshop series will help you articulate a clear and ambitious vision for the future, then create a map to make it a reality. You will learn how to focus your daily activities to support your long term vision. Through this process, you will sharpen your ability to make business decisions with confidence and clarity. Attendees will receive instruction on business strategy fundamentals including organizational structuring, goal setting, establishing key performance indicators, environmental scanning, and strategic alignment. You will apply this knowledge to develop or refine your strategic action plan over the course of eight weeks (four bi-weekly workshops) with the guidance of the facilitator. This series is suitable for business owners, organizations, and individuals who are just getting off the ground, and those who are well established. We will pay special attention to what it means to be an artist in business.
