How is this course related to the COSE Strategic Planning Course?
Strategic Planning: Essential Skills for Business and Leadership Growth is managed and delivered by a strong and committed group of business leaders who have been longtime participants in the course. Using their expertise and experiences, these individuals volunteer their time to help support and nurture other business owners as they work to grow their own companies. COSE, the small business division of the region’s chamber of commerce The Greater Cleveland Partnership, sponsored the course for many years, but it now operates as an independent entity.
