Both new and experienced practitioners and managers benefit from the structure, proven techniques, and knowledge that you’ll learn in this interactive training course. The Planning Course introduces foundational information that has stood the test of time and the Techniques Course introduces 39 different techniques for accomplishing desired objectives.
