The Participatory Strategic Planning (PSP) training will teach you 4-stage process (Practical Vision, Underlying Contradictions, Strategic Directions and Implementation Plan) for planning and implementing medium to long-term strategies for teams, departments, communities and organisations. Based on the Group Facilitation Methods training’s Consensus Workshop method for building consensus and the Focused Conversation (O.R.I.D) method for effective group communication, it presents a planning and implementation process for exploring alternatives, developing a framework providing guidance and direction, and defining immediate priorities and actions.

The Group Facilitation Methods course is a pre-requisite for this course.

 

Participants will learn to:
  • use methods preventing fire-fighting and problem-solving
  • effectively involve people in long-term planning

80% of PSP participants rated this course 8/10 or higher.
