Strategic planning in the public sector is both a difficult and intriguing topic. In the sector, there is an increasing emphasis on project results, value for money, and financial efficiency, as well as the shifting interaction between public and private organizations. Today, public sector organizations are increasingly expected to plan for the future strategically, utilizing tools and practices pioneered in the private sector.

The main topics of creating strategic objectives, planning programs and initiatives, and future preparation will be covered in this highly interactive training session. In order to achieve and maintain high-level performance in economic, social, and business growth, we will also examine in depth how we evaluate the results of public sector strategic decisions and provide guidance on how to build and integrate strategic and operational activities.

We want for this training session, which will emphasize measuring economic and business effect, to help all public sector employees focus more intently on the caliber of operational outputs and strategic results. Participants will have a clear road map on which to securely establish the organization's future.
