Format: 90 Minute Webinar or 2-Hour Workshop  

Credit Union Strategic Planning Training. Strategic Planning for Financial Institutions: It’s All About Your Strategy! Your credit union is unique so your Strategic Plan should be unique as well. Too often, executives and directors will construct a strategic plan from old plans, strategies found online or just brainstorming based on emotion or intuition. Financial services, however, has become a much faster-paced industry than it was 15 or 20 years ago and is impacted by many more forces, challenges, competitors and opportunities than ever before. These drivers highlight the need for every credit union to have a living, breathing strategic plan to thrive and grow.

This important and timely credit union webinar will address:

  • The importance of a clear vision, easy to understand mission, and documented core values.
  • The importance of a clearly defined strategic plan structure
  • Key components common to successful strategies
  • The role of enterprise risk mitigation and management in a credit union’s strategic plan
  • Establishing ‘best practices’ with board governance
  • Developing, implementing and managing the strategic planning process in your credit union

Whether your institution lacks a cohesive strategy, or just wants to review existing plan(s), this credit union strategic planning training will address questions including:

  • What is your vision for the future of your credit union?
  • Do your employees know your vision, and can they articulate it?
  • Does the culture and brand of your credit union (everything from your electronic signature on your emails to the look of your lobby) reflect the vision of where you want to take your credit union?
  • Do you know your risks—the risks that are unique to your credit union?
  • Do you have the right people, and are they in the right places to fulfill the vision of your credit union?

You will walk away with tools and ideas to:

  • Integrate your enterprise risk management program into your strategic plan
  • Integrate your talent management program into your strategic plan
  • Ensure your strategic plan doesn’t sit on the shelf and gets implemented
  • Identify and implement four key growth strategies.
