Strategic Planning Seminar
Our strategic planning seminar provides contemporary strategic and leadership skills in an interactive format that encourages critical thinking and the open exchange of ideas among a diverse group of experienced professionals. Using an intensive case study approach, participants analyze the strategic issues and decisions of competitive firms and recommend strategic action to satisfy the business mission. Participants learn by applying strategic audit, analysis, formulation and implementation tools to their own business environment.
The Loyola Difference: The Strategic Planning seminar encourages learning within an action oriented environment where personal values are emphasized and ethical approaches to leadership and business decisions are key. It emphasizes that leadership and service to the world are intimately connected. Participants acquire a mindset for reflective learning that will stimulate future business skills, personal growth, and development.
