In today’s complex business environment the challenge of achieving results on a sustained basis has become a herculean task for most management teams. This is more so for the management of tertiary institutions in Nigeria and other developing countries of the world. In many organizations, having annual corporate retreats is routine for progress reviews, strategy and budget preparation, or for 'blue sky' thinking. The value of Management Retreats is that they remove the management team from outside distractions for a sufficient length of time to contemplate strategic and governance issues, including the team's own development.
Management retreats help to solidify a management team and enhance its effectiveness by giving members time to get to know each other and to do long range or strategic planning for the organisation. A regular dedicated time spent at a corporate retreat off-site and away from distractions should be considered essential.
At Summit, we have experience of designing and facilitating corporate retreats locally and internationally. Often these are in exotic locations, and they are held in comfortable surroundings away from the normal workplace. Our strategic retreats are a unique mix of facilitation, consulting and Executive Action Learning sessions.
In the course of this retreat, presentations and discussion sessions will focus on the following sub-themes:
Review of Vision, mission and values
Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats analysis
Corporate governance, action planning and reporting systems.
Other matters arising.
