CPD Course: Building a Productive Team

Operational and divisional planning

Staff need a well-thought-out and developed plan to ensure they achieve the goals of their organisation’s strategy. If managers cannot create clear plans that align with strategy, this could result in wasted work, resources and effort. However, perfecting an operational or divisional plan gives teams a roadmap to organisational success.

This course reviews the fundamental requirements and principles of operational and divisional planning, together with practical ways in which you can develop them to lead your organisation to success.

Provides 12 hours of CPD

What you’ll learn:

  • The importance of creating operational and divisional plans that are consistent with your organisation’s corporate strategy and vision to ensure you are moving your organisation in the right direction
  • To recognise how the Golden Thread model shows how plans are transmitted through an organisation, and use this knowledge to optimise the plans you develop
  • Models and techniques that provide a clear structure for your plan and help ensure you don’t waste any resources or opportunities 
  • Ways to analyse the operational risks that could affect your plan so that mitigation strategies can be developed 
  • How contingency planning helps ensure that your team, department or division have the best possible chance of fulfilling a plan
