  1. You will create an advanced strategy for realising your personal strategic goals.
  2. Implementing your strategy will be your daily task.

Brief description of the personal strategy development method Strategium Space Scrum

During the course, you will learn the Strategium Space Scrum method.

Each lesson for each of the 11 sprints of this method contains all the necessary templates, checklists and guidelines.

You need to perform specific tasks in the lesson that will advance you to the approach’s result. All stages constitute a logical sequence and ensure the quality of the outcome.

Each stage (sprint) results are almost finished parts of your strategy, ready to integrate into one document or presentation, convenient for adjusting if necessary.

Will this course help you get a career advancement?

It may very well contribute. The course contains approaches to strategy development that even an MBA doesn’t take.

Even at an MBA, people learn relatively outdated approaches to strategic planning. Furthermore, even there, people don’t dive into the details. This course gives you a hands-on approach to strategy development. So what if it’s a personal strategy? The same tools are used there. There may only be some significant difference in 2 of the 11 steps, but just that.

Strategy development itself enhances strategic thinking, plus learning specific tools and techniques. But, unfortunately, not every director is proficient in this. So the potential for career advancement is enormous, of course, all other things being equal.

Another thing is that a career is only a part of what the course focuses on. A job is not everything in life. And, by the way, no one is stopping you from planning your development in the business field as well.

How to create a life plan: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Question: Can I create a life plan using your method? Is the course too complicated for me?

The course may indeed seem complicated to some people. The course uses strategic analysis business tools adapted to personal planning, so some terminology may not be familiar. But this is where the main benefit you get from the course.

Life is notoriously tricky, and the more sophisticated tools you learn when planning, the easier it will be in reality.

Firstly, the more sophisticated tools you use, the greater your competitive advantage.

Second, almost every approach you use during this course can be applied to the issues that arise in your work or business.

Third, we are constantly working to improve the lessons. During the course, you can ask us any questions about the course content or assignments, and we will make the necessary clarifications as soon as possible. Thus, you will get all the answers and support you need.

Question: How long does it take to complete the course?

On average, the course requires 40-50 hours to complete. About two-thirds of this time will be spent doing practical work and completing assignments for the lessons. The actual course time depends on several factors.

You can take lessons at different levels of immersion. For example, if your task is quite complex and you are not practising strategic analysis and planning, you will need more time to develop a comprehensive strategy. On the other hand, if you go through the lessons quickly and do only an outline of your homework results, you will spend considerably less time.

We recommend taking the course with a thorough immersion in each lesson.

It is better to move slowly and work at your own pace in your free time, but don’t compromise your work quality. This approach may increase the time to complete the course, but the results will be better.

A couple of weeks will not make much difference to your long-term plans. The important thing is that your goals will be less well-founded because of the possible rush to get through the course.

We recommend taking the course in two months, although you can complete it in a week with a full-time effort.

Question: Will there be any feedback on the course?

Because our students are in different time zones, we provide feedback asynchronously. You can ask your questions in the panel below each lesson as they arise, regardless of whether the course author or consultant is currently available.

As soon as a question is posted, we get a notification to give you an answer as quickly as possible. If the counsellor is online, you will get an answer as soon as possible; if not, they will get one as soon as they are available online.

Some questions may be pretty complex and require extensive answers, so be aware of your expectations in terms of time to prepare a response.

Q: When will I access the lessons, their appendices and assignments?

You will get access as soon as you have made the payment. However, there may be nuances in payment methods in your country. Therefore, we recommend that you contact us first to see how quickly you can access once using a particular payment method.

If we are online, it should not take longer than 10 minutes after payment; if we are not online, it might take some time, usually not longer than an hour. So don’t hesitate to get in touch with us first to avoid any uncertainty after payment.

Question: What are the guarantees? Are there any refunds and refund policies?

Of course, you can get a refund, but there are a few nuances that we wanted to let you know in advance. First, the fact is that you are paying for access to the course materials. This access is given to you as soon as you pay for it, and so at that point, the service is considered to have been provided.

A refund for a service that has already been provided is not the same as returning goods in a shop when you return undamaged goods. You will need perfect grounds for your claim.

If we consider your claim to be justified and our analytics system does not show any evidence that you have opened and copied lessons, i.e., malicious intent, we will enter your position.

Let us say straight away that we have never received any refund requests, so that this procedure may encounter technical problems. So let’s not count on a refund, but decide responsibly why and for what reason you want to enrol on this course.

You may also want to read our Terms and Conditions to clarify this in more detail.

We want to ensure no inconsistency between your expectations and what we can offer you. To do this, we have opened up access to some of our lessons to see for yourself how good they are. We also allow you to choose one of the exclusive lessons to look into it and see if it meets your expectations.

To do this, you need to send us the lesson’s name you want to access. Then, we’ll open it up for you for a few hours and send you a link to review it.

Certificate of attendance

You can get a certificate if you complete all homework assignments within the course and get a planned learning outcome.

Frankly, the best certificate for you would be your strategic plan. If you develop it and submit it to us for review, we will issue a certificate as attached. We will send it electronically as a pdf. It will be possible to print it out on good paper.

We want to point out that we will not scrutinise and comment on your strategy; it is a separate and significant job. However, we must ensure that you have done the work and created a methodically correct result.

If we are satisfied with your strategic plan, the certificate is yours. You will be able to hide sensitive information such as confidential personal goals or other sensitive data from your strategy.


  • Students should be able to read English proficiently
  • Willingness to push yourself forward and a strong desire to succeed
  • Laptop and Internet

Do you need a detailed personal plan?

As you can see from the diagram, most people are interested in personal strategies and personal planning. Of course, everyone can say, “I need a plan,” but not everyone means it.

Be the first in this significant source of competitive advantage — the ability to plan and adapt your plans distinguishes the human race of Homo Sapiens from animals.

During the course, you will honestly and objectively assess your situation and develop realistic ways to reach a new level of your life or an optimal strategy for adapting to changes.

You will have to learn, change and work hard to grow and adapt successfully. First, however, what exactly to study, where to work, and what to do and undertake?

How not to make a mistake in this choice and, if you still make a mistake, how to foresee backup options or quickly restructure your strategy?

You can never answer these questions more accurately than after developing a personal development strategy.
A detailed study of your abilities and skills, self-development, setting goals, ways to implement them and assessing the necessary resources is the only way to clarify your future life.
Only you must think through and make vital decisions. Our methodology will help you with this.

Can you see yourself in 10 years?

If you don’t have specific goals, you can only succeed by chance. If you set ambitious objectives in life and want to increase the likelihood of success, we recommend developing a personal strategic plan. If you don’t believe in setting goals, it’s because you don’t know how to do it.

Choosing the correct route is not easy; check it and not lose your way. However, by enabling our method, you will find new opportunities, go around obstacles and choose the proper techniques to achieve your life goals.

This course provides tools for finding a unique position in business and life, for determining and developing personal competitive advantages. You will get skills that will be useful in any sphere of life: strategic thinking, goal-setting, solving fundamental problems and optimising resources.

This course will also provide you with:

  1. A personal strategic map.
  2. Detailed Strategic Implementation Plans (DSIP) for each of your strategic projects.
  3. Confidence in the attainability of your strategic goals.

Personal Development Planning is an individually managed process to focus performance and achievements for personal, educational and career development. Our course will provide you with more approaches, tools and techniques to systematically work on your success.
