Strategy planning workshops

Overview

Effective strategic planning requires strong engagement across key executives to bring together consolidated insight and concerted action. The scope of strategic planning workshops can vary from executive teams of 6-10 to broad leadership programs of 100 or more.

A high-value strategic planning workshop identifies objectives and scope for a group session given existing strategic frames, and focuses on the most important conversations and discussions in a structured format that leads to clear outcomes. Digital facilitation tools can sometimes support strong and efficient engagement from participants. Strong facilitation distinguishes between issues that need pointed discussion and those those that can be parked, and leads to clear, high-value action plans

Client examples

A major bank brought together senior stakeholders from across the organization to develop potential scenarios for the bank’s operations and identify emerging risks over the next 3-5 years.
