Course Content:

Upon completion of the course you can expect to have a working knowledge of how to manage holistically. The first 3 days of the course are on understanding and using the Holistic Management® model to achieve your goals. Understanding and managing the ecosystem is stressed, as well as the tools available to you to influence your financial, land and people resources. The course gives you the specific techniques you need to help you significantly improve your ability to make better decisions in your business. The advanced session builds on the information in the first session. In the next 3 days participants work through case studies detailing financial, grazing and land planning.

Why Holistic Managment®?:

Holistic Management® is most easily defined by simply adding W to the word holistic. This describes what the process does - helps us manage Whole situations rather than perceived parts. Managing the whole gives better results and fewer unexpected problems. Many publications today are filled with gloomy forecasts about agriculture and the environment. Yet, there are few who offer realistic solutions that strengthen both our economy and communities. To reverse this trend we must do it with the people already on the land. Holistic Management gives human values a priority, while creating profit through proven financial planning procedures and ecosystem enhancement techniques.
