Results Map® Masters Program

This three-day session provides a unique, immersive opportunity for hands-on learning combined with powerful team-building. Designed as an active learning experience, participants use a case study drawn from their own organization to work through the Results Map® framework for strategic communications based on the “junctures” of PREPARE, PLAN, IMPLEMENT and EVALUATE. Like a shot in the arm of inspiration and empowerment for a communications team, the Masters Program helps teams raise their game in offering strategic value through a results-based approach to the function. The Program includes an exploration of proven strategies to build solid consultative skills and practical strategies to measure results. It also addresses the unique challenges and opportunities of strategic communications planning in a context of organizational change.

Participants earn a Certificate in the Results Map® methodology upon completion of the Program – helping to build practitioners’ credentials and confidence, while contributing meaningfully to their longer-term career growth.

The Results Map® is like a driver-assist system for your communications team. It won’t drive the car, but it will prompt you on when to go, when to slam on the brakes. It’ll nudge you to stay in your lane and alert you to oncoming dangers ahead.

The Results Map® Masters Program elevates the core competencies in strategic communications while delivering the following learning outcomes:
