This two (2) day seminar will address strategic planning and provide an introduction to performance-based management.
Public safety leaders across the United States are currently being challenged to explore new ways of making their
departments more efficient, innovative and proactive. They are also being asked to provide concrete evidence of
organizational ‘success.’ Municipalities are increasingly relying upon quantitative measures of organizational
performance as a means of managing and communicating strategic priorities and achieved results. This seminar is
designed to provide public safety leaders and managers with a straightforward management framework for developing,
communicating, managing and measuring strategic goals throughout a police organization. Supervisory personnel with
responsibility for strategy formulation and implementation are ideal candidates for this session.
The seminar will provide mid-level and senior public safety leaders with the necessary skills to help their departments describe: 1) a clear vision and goals; 2) specific organizational results that must be achieved; and 3) a clear path for achieving them. Specifically, the course will utilize lecture, class discussion, and small group work to demonstrate skills necessary for on-going strategic planning and performance evaluation. The course will also address strategies and techniques for implementing and assessing strategic plans and demonstrating organizational effectiveness.
The cost for the seminar is $300.00 which includes continental breakfast, breaks, lunch, and materials.
