During this hands-on learning session you will:
1. Draft a 5-year “big vision” for your sustainable purchasing program
2. Begin the development of a Program Charter, with the goal of building a detailed model of how your organization’s program will work, the impacts it will address, and the benefits it could realize
Sustainable purchasing programs often develop informally, the result of years of ad hoc, opportunistic activities. Rarely are program leaders invited to pick their heads up and think deeply about the future they are hoping to create through their organization’s purchasing. But organizations that establish bold, audacious visions find that having a vision in place is grounding and allows the program to take a more strategic approach. Join the SPLC for this Vision workshop and take the time to develop a big vision for your sustainable purchasing program. Once you’ve drafted your vision, you’ll move on to more “practical” thinking with the development of a Program Charter that will help you to put more structure to how you will achieve that big vision.
