With a combination of lecture, individual reflection and group exercises HR professionals will learn strategic planning methods that engage key stakeholders in designing a plan that is anchored in values and mission yet is flexible enough to respond to daily, monthly and yearly shifts in their relevant environment. HR professionals will learn about the different types of succession planning, methodologies to engage key stakeholders and how to prepare to facilitate this practice into the organization. This course will be taught by Hanns Meisner, the Chief Executive Office of the ARC of Rensselaer County.
