CXO Masterclass – Strategic Planning

CXO Masterclass – Strategic Planning

For small business leaders, understanding strategic planning is crucial for long-term success.

This Masterclass will explore the key capabilities that every CEO / CFO / ‘CXO’ should have for Strategic Planning:

  1. Vision Development: Beginning with a clear vision that outlines the future direction and purpose of the business.
  2. Setting SMART Goals: Establishing specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals aligned with the vision.
  3. Execution and Adaptation: Execution is where the rubber meets the road.

By understanding these aspects of strategic planning—vision development, setting SMART goals, and effective execution—a small business leader can chart a clear path towards sustainable growth and success.
