If it always feels like you are in "year one of a three year plan," then how committed are you really to this plan, and how successful will those around you be in delivering this plan? The intent of true Strategic Planning is to be rigid enough to set the proper long-term strategic goals while also being nimble enough to perform micro adjustments with foresight, accuracy and responsiveness. Our Strategic Planning sesssion outlines the processes of defining your long term goals and how to clearly delineate these goals to various levels of your organization, assuring that the daily tactical activities have the best chance of delivering your strategic intent. If you desire and understand the value of having every one of your employees be able to easily communicate the purpose of their daily activities and how these activities link to a great "strategic" goal, then this session is for you.
In this class we dedicate a full day (9 hours) to our participants, and provide our prefered text book that all atendees can take home to keep. We will thoroughly go through topics, answering questions and practicing your newly attained skills with exercises. We start our course in the morning, take a lunch break, and then finish by the afternoon. A boxed lunch is provided for our participants.
You will leave this session with:
1. An illustration of what has been recognized as the best Strategic Plan- ning tool available to business today.
Superseding the Balanced Scorecard, Strategic Planning has been redefined and re-tooled in a roadmap form that aligns your tactical activities to your corporate strategic intent. Get ahead of the game, and start using the tool that works!
2. A deployment methodology that illustrates how to set implementation milestones and deliverables.
You will learn a hands-on simulation that enables you to design critical milestones for your project. This deployment method- ology will also help you to gain the deliverables you need to be able to reach these milestones.

5. A communication matrix that will be linked to your deliverables to enable the most effective one-vision focus.
We will teach you a visual management system that clearly identifies who owns a project deliverable and what resources are in support of the owner. Additionally the key resources that can, and should, be included in the deliverables.
