    The Strategic Planning & Implementation Process


    This presentation will cover the basics of strategic management, and the role HR professionals play in successful formulation, implementation, and evaluation.

    • Strategy Implementation
      • Policy and procedure change
      • Change management
    • Strategy evaluation
      • Timing of evaluation activities
