If you and the people who work with you don’t understand where the company is going, they may all develop their own priorities and actually prevent you from getting where you need to be. Part of getting everyone on board is creating a strategic plan complete with the organisation’s values, vision, and mission.
Then, there’s the challenge of bringing these principles to life in a meaningful way that people can relate to. This two-day course will help you describe what you want to do and get people where you want to go.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Understanding Strategic Planning
Then, participants will explore what strategic planning is. They will also be introduced to the pyramid strategic plan structure that will form the basis of the rest of the course.
Identifying Our Values
Next, participants will work through the foundation of a strategic plan: value identification and writing values statements.
Designing Our Vision
The next step in a strategic plan is to identify your vision. In this session, participants will think about where they want their company to be in several years’ time.
The next part of the strategic plan is to write a Purpose Statement. That’s what participants will focus on in this session.
Performing a SWOT Analysis
In this session, participants will learn how to use a SWOT analysis to identify where they currently are and what they need to do to get where they want to go.
Next, participants will learn how to use the SPIRIT and GROWTH models to frame goals and objectives.
Assigning Roles, Responsibilities, and Accountabilities
The final piece of the strategic plan gets at the heart of getting the work done by assigning who will address each role and what they are accountable for. This session will give participants some ways to perform this step. They will also get hands-on problem solving practice through a case study.
The Full Picture
Participants will begin the second day with a snapshot of the strategic planning cycle and a review activity.
In this session, participants will look at gathering support for a plan, creating a review process, and obtaining buy-in.
Making the Change
Strategic plans naturally become harbingers of change. This session will give participants some ways to help people transition through that change.
How Does It Look?
Next, participants will look at some different ways to present their strategic plan. Infographics, reports, and presentations will all be discussed.
This session will explore what problems can occur during the strategic planning process and how to deal with them. Security considerations will also be discussed. The session will wrap up with an introduction to strategy maps and balanced scorecards.
Mocking Up the Process
The course will conclude with an in-depth capping exercise to help participants apply what they have learned to either their organisation or a fictional company.
At the end of the course, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
For details on the differences between “in-house” and “all-inclusive” please see below
We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
