Bulletproof Your Success: If the devil is in the details ...
8/8/2012, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
This lecture is all about how to turn your strategic plan into a sound business plan. The tools covered here take you through processed based thinking, market research tools, attitudinal segmentation (versus behavioral or demographic), and how to design the right infrastructure/foundation to support your value chain to deliver on your objectives – financial and otherwise. You will learn how to design business plans by department, and how to connect those plans directly to performance reviews. Included are project management tools to help you implement your plans so you never miss a beat.

The lecture takes place at the Birmingham Community House and is sponsored by OU's School of Business Administration.

The lectures, which take place the second Wednesday of every month from February through September 2012 at the Birmingham Community House from 11:30-1 p.m., run $35 per lecture, registrants can add a lunch for $10.
