Why my course is useful

Almost every organization has a GIS. And all large organizations develop strategic plans. This class is needed to help GIS Architects and GIS Managers have the appropriate voice to describe how their GIS will provide essential service in a strategic plan.

Why I built it

It's a funny thing that to get to my position, I got a PhD from the ‘College of Hard Lessons’. There’s no adequate course to train GIS and IT managers on how to be a forward thinking strategist. Many of us analysts wind up here but then have to act on instinct. After thinking about this need for a long time, I wanted to go beyond my Powerpoints and truly demonstrate how to proactively develop your GIS strategic plans.

What I hope for you?

I hope you dig in and use these strategies. These are credible approaches that will allow you to demonstrate technical thought leadership rather than just GIS or soft skills. Let’s get more of us sitting at the executive table along with the rest of the leadership!
