The Certified Strategy and Business Planning Professional C-SBP Certification recognizes your knowledge of developing organizational strategy and planning your business using a strategic framework.

The C-SBP certification is the result of a rigorous experiential learning programme divided into three sections: pre-course activities, core-course activities, and post-course assignments. This programme provides participants with the Strategic Planning Tools they need to anticipate and capitalize on future customer expectations, disruptive technology, and other changes that business leaders may face.

This educational programme, which incorporates more than 15 years of research, will provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to differentiate yourself from other professionals through a rigorous and structured approach to measuring performance.


The pre-course is a component of the learning experience that is intended to facilitate a seamless transition to face-to-face training. It is strongly advised to take the following actions to ensure a successful learning experience:

Introduction – send out a message to introduce yourself to the other members of an online community.

  • Pre-course evaluation – complete a requirements analysis by taking a brief exam to determine your current level of expertise and completing a section to express your expectations. Participants can define personal learning objectives for this programme as part of this self-evaluation.
  • Prerequisite reading – go through a variety of subjects, including history and management philosophies. In addition, KPI definitions should be examined prior to the core course to acquire a more holistic picture of the subject and to develop a shared knowledge base linked to strategic planning.
  • Guidance and schedule – read a paper that contains instructions for maximizing your learning experience by utilizing all of the materials available, as well as a recommended study schedule.

The course is designed to enhance experiential learning and ensure a high degree of involvement over the five days of face-to-face training. Exercises used to improve competency development range from simple concept matching to in-depth case study analysis. The learning experience consists of the following components:

  • Analyzing case studies and developing answers;
  • Applying principles in real activities
  • Using templates to create performance measuring tools;
  • Sharing of knowledge and best practices;
  • Constantly assessing participants’ knowledge using mini quizzes to supplement the final test.

Following the training, participants are provided with materials and venues to support both knowledge advancement and experience exchange. The following are the components of the post-course learning experience:

  • Action plan – present a plan outlining the changes you propose to implement in your department or organization in terms of Strategy Planning.
  • In-house presentation – provide a PowerPoint presentation on important subjects covered throughout the training course that you will deliver within your firm.
  • Additional reading – go over a list of materials (books, articles, and videos) aimed at assuring a lifelong learning experience.
  • Follow-up – 3 months after the session, complete a survey to identify what you have effectively implemented inside your business as a result of attending the training course.
