Breakthrough Strategic Planning
A good plan is essential for every organization. And knowing what other companies similar to yours are doing can help refresh your ideas and save you from potential mistakes. This workshop teaches a strategic planning process we call Breakthrough Strategic Planning, where you will learn what several leading companies have built their corporate culture around.
The workshop assists in creating a laundry list of what should be done, and provides a means to incorporate short-term plans and daily behavior into the long-term strategic plan. It presents tools to cut corporate costs by eliminating the waste of resources on non-value-added activities unrelated to the strategic plan.
Who Should Attend
Ideal for anyone looking to put energy and enthusiasm back into the organization to meet meaningful goals, especially senior level management, directors, middle management, and planning team members involved in implementing and maintaining a strategic plan.
What You Will Learn
- How to apply the techniques and processes for guiding your organization through the four phases of BSP:
Phase I: Select a Breakthrough Goal
BSP focuses organizational energy on the one breakthrough goal that will produce the greatest benefit to your organization, its customers, and stakeholders.
Phase II: Align the Organization
Instead of generalizing responsibilities for meeting strategic goals and objectives, BSP helps identify and align the organizational functions and levels necessary to achieve the breakthrough goal, using its unique, participative "catchball" process.
Phase III: Implement the Plan
Through BSP, all parts of your organization closely monitors the plans and activities for attaining the breakthrough goal and act upon them immediately should they deviate from the plan.
Phase IV: Review and Improve the Plan
In BSP, monthly reviews are conducted at all levels to keep the activities focused and relevant. The intensity of the reviews ensures communication, completion, corrective action, and success.
Each completed planning cycle strengthens and improves your planning process and your organization.
- How to work through case studies and how to apply the techniques and processes for guiding your organization through the four phases of BSP.
