Strategic Visioning and Planning

We find that many of the organizations and individuals that we work with are so busy reacting to their competitive, fast paced work environments that they don’t have time to plan for the future. This puts them in a continually frustrating cycle of responding rather than creating. Add in a widely held belief that planning is a boring, mundane task, and it’s no wonder that strategic visioning and planning becomes something that is on their “to do” list that never gets done.

We facilitate a unique process developed by the Grove Consultants International that makes planning a powerful and enjoyable event. The approach combines traditional analytical planning with creative intuitive approaches to visioning. Synergy and buy-in are created by blending four proven change management technologies:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Visioning
  • Large Scale Process
  • Graphic Facilitation

Very large (8′ X 4′) graphic templates stimulate breakthroughs in the levels of involvement, buy in and productivity given to the process.  Not only is this process compelling for unifying organizations and teams to focus on their important challenges and goals, it is also an inspiring method for individuals to use to clarify important life decisions.

When the process is completed you will have a visually compelling recap of:

Your history and what has brought you to the present moment;

  • Your history and what has brought you to the present moment;
  • A review of competitive and other market forces that affect you;
  • Your strengths, problems, opportunities and threats;
  • Your vision of an ideal future (short and long term);
  • The bold steps you must take to accomplish your goals;
  • Short-term action steps and individual responsibilities.
