Applications for Fellowships of the SPS continue to grow, demonstrating the success of the SPS’ new strategy, to provide a ‘ladder of opportunity’ for the strategic planning community.
SPS Executive Officer Paul Barnett says: “The number of enquiries about SPS Fellowships is increasing and they are generally of a very high quality. There are requests coming in from all over the world, and we have just approved two Fellows from Australia, one from UAE and one from Dubai.”
He says that support for the new class of membership demonstrates that the SPS has taken the right approach in seeking a way to provide professionals with structured recognition at each stage of their career.
He explains: “The SPS is playing its part in encouraging strategy to move from a management science to a professional discipline by providing a ladder of opportunity. We have introduced associate membership for people at the beginning of their career, then there is general membership, Fellowship and Honourary Fellowship. It enables strategists to have a ladder of recognition throughout their careers.”
