Balanced Scorecard Institute parent company Strategy Management Group is expanding its worldwide offerings to include a Strategic Management Performance System (SMPS) Certification Program, as well as an innovative one-day strategic thinking offering. The new offerings are designed to help organizations around the globe improve strategy formulation, strategic alignment, strategy execution, and performance management.
Each of the new programs will be offered in association with SMG partners LBL Strategies and the George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership (GWU-CEPL), and are designed to help business, non-profit and government organizations worldwide solve their strategic planning and performance management challenges.
The SMPS Certification Program is professional education designed to deliver a “process driven” understanding of strategy management and provide practical tools to those managing or leading strategic planning. The program helps participants build skills capacity and professional credibility and provides recognized exam preparation training as well as a pathway to sit for the two Association for Strategic Planning (ASP) certification examinations: Strategic Planning Professional and Strategic Management Professional. The SMPS program is available both in person and online (live and self-study) with certification provided by GWU-CEPL and SMG.
The one-day Strategic Thinking workshop is a facilitated work session designed to help managers and leaders support strategic change through improved cross-functional communication. Teams are led through a variety of strategic thinking exercises to drive alignment throughout the execution of the organizations’ key strategies. It takes a team through a fast-paced interactive experience so that strategic thinking can be applied within all levels of an organization. This workshop is recommended for leadership teams seeking more innovative solutions from their business and functional units, and middle management teams seeking to apply strategic frameworks and management tools in support of their organizations.
