Strategic Planning


Planning can mean many different things depending on the organization or the leadership of the organization.  I have been part of organizations that often identified goals, wrote mission statements, and articulated commander's intent, but did not come up with a plan to implement the vision or the steps to achieve the identified goals.  This can be disappointing to all stakeholders.  To avoid disappointment and assure mission success, I have combine my experience teaching decision making with military planning and execution to design this essential curriculum. 

Here are a few of the key steps I address in a typical strategic planning session:

  • Identify the main issues/goals
  • Set the desired time frame
  • Identify the decision elements
  • Seek input from internal stakeholders
  • Calibrate internal and external input
  • Risks/cost analysis
  • Create team for implementation, identify roles
  • Follow up and status check
  • Identify pitfalls, counterarguments
  • Public communications and messaging
  • Refine decision and timeline
  • Contingency planning - adapt
  • Manage implementation
  • Final roll out
