The result is a planning effort that is practical, effective, and time/cost efficient.
How is it different? What are the benefits?
Traditional strategic planning:
Effective implementation: Translate plans into meaningful action, employing process developed by CSCG.
Ongoing monitoring: Using our unique tracking tools, ensure strategic initiatives are completed on time, and initiate quick responses to variances and changing conditions.
Planning retreats often lack a mechanism to implement and track plans. Plans are then set aside, gathering dust as “bookcase filler.”
Using CS Strategic Roadmapping approach, prioritize your critical issues and desired objectives; reconcile against expected conditions; and specify commitments for competing successfully. Results can then be communicated in a summary document.
Resulting plan provides you a clear sense of direction for where you are going, and a detailed roadmap outlining simple steps for how to get there.
Traditional strategic planning can lapse into an academic exercise, where the focus on the process overwhelms the issues at hand. The relevancy of your direction and the effectiveness of the plan are lost, among the endless number of “strategic initiatives.”
Each step of the roadmapping process acts as a building block, to bring a multitude of issues into understandable focus, weigh relevant information, and provide clear answers.
Our skilled strategy facilitators work carefully with your management team and/or Board to achieve appropriate levels of involvement. This results in strong buy-in and commitment by those who need to be involved.
The structure of most retreats result in an unproductive environment for reflective thinking, and hurried, inconsistent, nonspecific decisions. In this atmosphere, the people dynamics are often neglected, eliminating any hope for real consensus or buy-in.
