MEGA SESSION: An Executive Briefing on How to Sell Your Strategic Plan Internally

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
Uncover the execution pitfalls of strategic planning and how to overcome them to create a plan that delivers.

"Why is it so hard to get a plan executed?" Have you asked this same frustrating question when it comes to strategic planning? As an HR leader, you've likely experienced pitfalls when it comes to executing a strategy that ends up failing - instead of taking your organization to the next level. There is a way to sell your plan inside so that your plan delivers on its promise - instead of stopping at the execution pitfalls. After attending this session, you will be able to: - Identify the process and components of strategic planning. - Address why most plans fail and identify the key execution pitfalls to avoid. - Recommend and apply strategies for selling the plan inside your organization.
