Have you been asked to lead your team's next strategy meeting?
It's a condition that affects millions of managers every year.
Symptoms include: Worry, concern, anxiety, and googling any information they can to point them in the right direction.
Don't worry you aren't alone.
Change seems to happen faster than we can imagine. Sometimes it feels like we're caught off guard by these changes and are reacting instead of planning ahead for what's coming next.
The good news is that you can identify and prepare for changes by using tools like trend analysis, risk analysis, and scenario planning.
As a part of the strategic planning process, these tools are valuable for all types of organizations, whether government, non-profit, or for-profit, to assess future scenarios for their industry and organization.
Are you hosting a strategic planning meeting and need a one day sample agenda?
We've created this one day strategic planning agenda to help with your planning needs, for those who don't have the time for a two-day session, or for those who may be reviewing their strategy on an ongoing basis.
Thanks to your feedback, we've been able to release our latest version of our custom video course that will help you to create a clear and focused strategic plan. By taking this course, you will be able to create a plan that your team can understand, buy in to, and move forward with as a team.
