This self-paced course introduces learners to business planning which is a valuable framework for Public Health professionals. We'll explore how business planning is both prescriptive and flexible in that it can help identify strengths, weaknesses and unknowns to promote public health program success and sustainability. While the specifics and nuances will vary, by the time you get well into the business plan, you should be very well positioned to make good decisions about how to take your idea and implement it in a sustainable way to improve the public's health in your community.
