SVTC Luncheon | WTF is Strategy and Why Should You Care? @ Wood Grill Buffet
Oct 24 @ 11:45 am – 1:00 pm

Description
This presentation will focus on understanding the 3 different types of strategic disciplines.  What are their differences and how businesses often gravitate to one not realizing the others are blind spots?  How to build a strategy that leverages all 3 and how to do that to build a better organization.  An ideal topic for business leaders looking to take their business to the next level or understand how to pivot from stagnate/declining revenue.
