Strategic Planning Workshop

Strategy by Design

In this hands on workshop, your team will learn the five-step Strategy By Design process that marries traditional strategic management tools and practices with design thinking methodology. By integrating these generally disparate processes, strategic planning will awaken your organization, improve its agility, and set it on a path to achieve a distinctive position in your industry.

About Strategic Planning

Everyone on your team should be able to participate in the co-creation of your firm's strategy, regardless of job role, title, or formal leadership. Your team will leave the workshop with

  1. a novel approach to identify strategic priorities, initiatives, and goals aimed at moving your organization forward, 
  2. a robust set of tools to participate in the ongoing strategy making process, and
  3. a systematic method for packaging collective insights that will guide your organization toward Peak Performance
