2021 ILSHRM Virtual Strategic HR Series:

Strategic Planning & Organizational Performance

Presented by Heather Kinzie, Chief Operating Officer, The Strive Group

Lewis Carol said, “if you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” So goes strategic planning and organizational performance. Unless the organization can identify clear objectives and design and plan for specific work to achieve those objectives, the chances of achieving meaningful success are minimal.

Human Resource professionals play an integral part in an organization’s strategic planning processes; this interactive six-hour workshop will have you diving right in! The instructor will provide an overview of the strategic planning process and will lead the participants step-by-step through each phase, thereby illuminating the critical value and benefits the HR leader brings to the process.

We are honored to have Heather Kinzie, Chief Operating Officer of The Strive Group in Anchorage, Alaska present this series for ILSHRM.
