Meirc’s online snippet is a short 1.5 hour webinar delivered by one of our subject matter experts.

Overview

An organization without a strategy is like a ship without a rudder. How can organizations continue to provide exceptional value to stakeholders and customers if they are not clear on where they are heading and how they will get there? The answer is: they can't. This is where the role of strategy becomes essential. Strategy is about setting ambitious goals, understanding the surrounding current and future environment, and providing a sense of direction for the organization. The most important step in developing a strategy begins with a comprehensive understanding of the surrounding and future environment. Unfortunately, many organizations don’t spend enough time on this important step or worse yet, skip this step altogether.
