The CEO's step by step guide to strategic planning

01-Oct-2013

How to develop a strategic plan or common vision for an organization.


What do you want from your strategic planning process?

Do you need to develop a strategic plan or common vision for your organization that:

One of the most important roles of a CEO is to develop the strategic plan for the organization.  
  • Provides clear direction to your organization?
  • Helps your leadership team to focus on the 20% of leadership activities they need to engage in, to deliver 80% of the results they want?
  • Your leadership team can use to guide their decisions?
  • Guides your budgeting, goal setting and performance management processes?
  • Allows every individual in the organization to see how the work they do contributes to the organization's future?
  • Helps the team make tough strategic decisions on issues they have been grappling with?

Do you need to develop a common vision that all members of your leadership team are committed to? One that you can present to your board of directors?

What can go wrong when running a strategic planning workshop or retreat?

  • The workshop is nothing more than a talk shop.
  • Political agendas dominate the discussions.
  • Delegates are frustrated when the facilitator doesn't control the group or runs out of time.
  • The wrong delegates are at the workshop.
  • The discussions are meaningless and achieve nothing.
  • The logistics are badly organized and delegates arrive at the workshop angry.
  • Delegates are unhappy with the workshop agenda.
  • Delegates don't focus on what is happening during the workshop.
  • The workshop achieves nothing new. Nothing gets developed.  Delegates believe it was a waste of time and money.
  • After the workshop, nothing happens. There is no documented plan. Nothing new gets implemented.
  • The CEO is left having to come up with a strategic plan on his own to present to the board of directors or parent company. This plan doesn't have the support of his management team.
