Center for Executive Education SPEAR Workshop

Date: November 16, 2021 to November 19, 2021
Location: Online

Strategic Planning for Execution: Assessment and Risk (SPEAR)

The Strategic Planning for Execution: Assessment and Risk (SPEAR) Workshop provides a guided process to support Commanders and their executive teams to develop mission-critical strategic plans, execute those plans effectively, maximize Navy resources, and accurately assess the impact of their plans. Command teams have substantial time during this 3 day workshop to shape their specific planning initiatives with the help of professional facilitators and the expertise of Naval Postgraduate School faculty, who know best-practices and have proven practical experience working with numerous Navy commands, major corporations and other government organizations.

Who Should Attend?

We recommend sending teams of at least 3-5, led by a Flag Officer, SES, or O-6. The SPEAR goal is for each team to strengthen their organization's strategic planning process with attention to desired outcomes, metric selection and risk management. The workshop is effectively a structured and facilitated off-site for senior leadership and staff to focus on advancing their command's effectiveness to accomplish key strategic goals.
