The greater the uncertainty for the future is, the greater the need to plan for that uncertainty.  You need to position your organisation for the future…

Long-term planning is essential in any business, yet it often gets put on the backburner because you are too busy doing the ‘real work’ of the business, or because it seems so daunting and complicated. In this 90-minute seminar you’ll discover the key elements of a strategic plan and write a simple draft ‘strategic plan-on-a-page’ to use in your business.

In this session you will gain an overview of the ‘strategy landscape’:

  1. The strategic planning process - it’s the same no matter how big or small your business is!
  2. Strategy formulation is like getting to the top of a mountain – you need to plan to achieve success:
  • Why do you want to get to the top of mountains? (Purpose/mission)
  • Where do you want to go? Which mountain? (Vision)
  • Where do you want to get to each day/week/year? (Goals and objectives)
  • What is the environment? Grassy? Icy? Desert? (Environmental analysis)
  • How will you get there? Walk? Mountain bike? Camel? Build a road and drive? (Strategies)
  • What tools/equipment/training will you need? Ropes? Boots? Fitness? (Resources)
  • What’s important to you and your travelling companions along the way? (Values)

         3. Bringing it all together  - write your plan and what to do next
