Strategic & Succession Planning
In these volatile and uncertain times, the need to prioritize and stabilize our resources, budget and programs has never been greater. Today, both private and public sector organizations are developing and updating their business (strategic) plans to continue their mission and improve the likelihood of success. Part of this plan is examining staff development, retention, and recruitment and training the current and future leaders of our agencies.
The California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) has designed an intensive, one-day course for Chiefs of Police and Seconds-in-Command to give them the skills necessary to create these plans expeditiously and cost effectively. This class will examine the strategic and succession planning processes and combines the discussion of current strategic and succession plans with interactive exercises.
