Strategy Planning and Alignment Workshops
We have developed a series of 12 planning workshops to build/improve strategy formulation and strategy execution capabilities that reduce or eliminate the systemic problems and organizational constraints. For many years we have experienced that organizational clarity precedes organizational alignment. This clarity is a byproduct of using a common framework and defining a clear and compelling strategy that includes the means to achieving the intended outcomes.
In order to move towards an agile enterprise, it is critical to develop a process of continuous performance improvement around achieving more clarity about the organizational goals and objectives at every level and the means to achieve them via a strategy.
These following workshops can be delivered in one- to three-day footprints and customized to meet specific outcomes for organizational renewal, strategic planning, major programs, transformational projects, performance management or strategy execution effectiveness. These planning workshops can be applied to any major initiative, program, project or strategic business unit plan. The custom designed facilitation agenda scales up or down depending on the context and the present lifecycle of the organization or business unit.
