An Integrated Strategic Planning Model Helpcard
The challenges of strategic planning
You are asked to lead, or find someone to lead a strategic planning session. The last time, it seemed like the planning session went well, but a week after, everyone completely forgot about the plan. Just gathered dust.
This time YOU are responsible, and people are counting on you.
You can make it work, but you may need to...
...change your thinking about strategic planning. The first thing is you need a good model to follow. The second thing is you need to know how to make the strategic planning work - that is, for the plan to be a living, dynamic and influential document that gets everyone focused on achieving the same goals.
Here's A Start
We created two helpcard tools, one for each of the issues I mentioned above. They are meant to work together.
The first, written by business strategist and and author Robert Bacal, provides a comprehensive model for An Integrated Strategic Planning approach. It maps out the steps in the strategic planning process. It's complete. You may choose to simplify it for others, but it explains the entire process, and all the interconnections of plans and business processes.
What's different about an INTEGRATED model is that it brings together strategic and tactical planning under one umbrella, so that strategic plans can be USED to make day to day decisions.
This is one of the secrets of making strategic planning documents come ALIVE, and not end up gathering dust in the backs of desk drawers. This 2 sided 8.5 x 11 inch card provides dozens of hints, tips and principles to help you get through to the boss. Here's what is on the card:
