Strategic planning equals change. If you don’t plan to change, don’t bother to plan.

Four fatal flaws derail the overwhelming majority of companies’ strategic planning—regardless of size, age or industry.

Pre-workshop Interviews

INTERVIEW KEY INDIVIDUALS TO PROVIDE INSIGHT TO GUIDE THE RIGHT WORKSHOP DISCUSSIONS

Developing a strategic plan that addresses an organization’s meaty issues requires input from all the stakeholders who play a role in your success: thought leaders, vocal and silent influencers, group leaders, front line troops and others. To provide your leadership with a 360-degree view and an important starting point for your planning session, Greg can conduct pre-workshop interviews with individuals you identify—including those who may not be able to attend the workshop in person. These pre-interviews provide insights into the real issues affecting your organization and that become the starting point in the two-day session to drive improvements.

Six-Month Follow-up Workshop

A ONE DAY TUNE-UP TO ENSURE YOUR COMPANY IS ON COURSE

Most strategic plans fail not because there are not enough good ideas Most plans ail because here are too many ideas to pursue, making implementation of the plan difficult. Greg helps you keep the plan focused on priorities. And then six months after the planning session, Greg offers a one-day tune-up to ensure your leaders are keeping the commitments they made to one another. This one-day tune-up also provides an opportunity to decide how best to address new opportunities that have merged since the original session. .
