ABOUT SPC 3.0
Dr. Jeffrey C. Susbauer and Dr. Robert J. Baker, Jr. created the original SPC curriculum in 1979 with the support of Jack Bares of the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE). They co-taught the course as the COSE Strategic Planning Course for the next 34 years. After Dr. Baker passed away in 2014, Dr. Susbauer revamped and updated the curriculum and continued to provide the course through COSE. Following the 2017-18 program, COSE decided to restructure its education offerings, but Dr. Susbauer and the vibrant SPC community continue on as SPC 3.0, building prosperity and economic growth through Northeastern Ohio.
