Strategic Planning Made Simple

Do you have a Clear Vision of where you want your business to be in three years? Do you have a Simple Plan in place to help you get there?

Every business no matter what the size should have a strategic plan in place for at least the next three years. The problem is that most businesses don’t understand how to develop a strategic plan. Those that do have a plan, often struggle to execute it!
This one day interactive workshop covers:
  • Exercises to develop creative thinking
  • Strategic planning theory and tools
  • Internal analysis of the organisation
  • External view of the organisation and the environment
  • Developing a vision
  • Development of critical success factors
  • Creating key performance indicators – measurable and benchmarks
  • Building strategic objectives that support the vision
  • Development of values and acceptable behaviours
  • Creation of individual 6 month plans to support the strategic plan
  • Execution process - how this should work
After this one day workshop, you will be able to:
  • Develop a simple one page strategic plan;
  • Know how to implement and execute it;
  • Ensure that departmental strategy is aligned to the overall corporate strategy.
