Our Simplified Strategic Planning Program is a multi-workshop series that teaches participants an effective strategic planning process while at the same time creating a clear, compelling strategic plan for their organization. Participants will:
Set direction through clear articulation of Vision, Mission, and Strategic Filters
Define their organization’s current and desired future state
Clearly articulate the organization’s core competencies
Define a prioritized set of Strategic Filters to evaluate strategic initiatives
Inventory, evaluate, prioritize, and sequence initiatives to support their strategy
Allocate resources to initiatives based on priority and need
Package their work into a compelling strategic plan
The program consists of a combination of out-of-class work combined with a series of workshops (typically three sessions) and targeted out-of-class coaching. The program is pragmatic in that participants learn the strategic planning method while simultaneously applying it to their real-world business need.
The target audience for this course is the leadership team of a business, business unit, or organization. Putting an existing leadership team through this program enhances both their strategic planning skills as well as the quality of their actual strategic plan. The benefits of this course are:
The leadership team having a strategic planning process they can replicate each year thereby making their plans more compelling and rigorous with less effort than ad hoc planning efforts
An efficient means of gathering and processing key inputs for strategic planning
Better strategic alignment, prioritization, and resource allocation
Clarity and focus which eliminates low value initiatives and drives critical ones
