Strategic Planning is a systematic process of envisioning a desired future, translating this vision into broadly defined goals or objectives and then mapping out a concrete sequence of steps to achieve them. Unlike long-term planning, strategic planning begins with the desired end and works backward to the current status. A strategic focus addresses and solves business problems and opportunities from a larger, over-arching scope of focus. It’s formulated before tactical action is taken.

Thinking strategically and acting tactically can be done with a proven planning approach to identify business challenges and opportunities, establish key priorities and build a roadmap.

At this workshop you will:

  • Learn a 10 step systematic approach to strategic planning and implementation.
  • Analyze the VMOST important focus using the SETability model’s 4 business impact zones.
  • Know the 7 Strategic Planning questions you must ask and get answered.
  • Use planning tools to capture your business present and future state requirements.
  • Establish the components of a strategy and implementation roadmap to guide your direction.
  • Outline tactical work components with resource considerations.
  • Identify communication needs to engage people for change opportunities.

Participants will work through the strategic planning process using a proven model, apply tools and techniques, and engage in a number of activities to develop and reinforce the learning.
