Many companies have strategic plans, that do not work well because they are not implemented. As Fortune discovered, less than 10% of strategies effectively formulated are effectively executed. The workforces of many companies go about their daily business totally unaware of the fact that their companies have strategic plans. As a result, there is no relationship between company plans and the workers’ activities.
The key to success lies in translating the vision and the strategic business plans into the everyday activities of the people who are doing the work, adding the value, providing the service, so that everybody knows exactly what they must do on Monday morning in order to achieve results.
This workshop will examine and demonstrate practical, realistic tools and techniques that successful organizations use to develop and implement their strategic and operational plans. The workshop materials and workbooks, including “A Common Sense Approach to Business Planning”, and “Performance Measures Applied” were snapped-up and utilized by 70% of Australia’s top 100 companies and have since been published internationally. Each module contains examples, summaries, checklists, glossaries and quality standards. Common pitfalls are analyzed and there are case studies. Plus, there are easy to use guidelines for implementing the strategic planning and performance systems.
