Strategic Planning Workshop- A "Teach to Fish" Approach For the Annual Strategic Planning Process


Boston October 15, 2009

Creating a good strategic plan can and should take weeks of collaboration but as a background task, not a full-time effort. One way to reduce that time - and the resulting costs - is a better understanding of the process and elements of strategic planning. This workshop will help you understand and implement a good Strategic Plan by laying out best practices to go through this process. The workshop contains everything you need to smoothly guide your management team through the process as well as sample plans, blank templates, printable worksheets and even agendas for the key meetings all companies should have.

WHAT IS A STRATEGIC PLAN?

The Strategic Plan is the foundation of your company that makes all the decisions about "what" you will do long term and the strategies for "how" it will get done.

The Strategic Plan is also a framework for the decisions everyone makes in your company and provides the basis for more detailed planning of daily and weekly decisions and priorities. Without a good strategic plan in place you can be sure people will be making many poor decisions that are based on their own personal perspectives instead of a corporate perspective.

The Strategic Plan also helps to explain the business to others in the organization to inform, motivate and getting them involved. It builds unity and passion in the management team and even individual employees. The Strategic Plan therefore will get the most out of your management team and allow maximum collaboration to leverage all the wisdom, experience and knowledge to grow your
business. Research has shown that companies with good goal setting systems perform 56% better than companies without
such systems in place.
