Course description

Facilitating Strategic Planning

Most successful organizations recognize how important strategic planning is for ensuring all resources are aligned towards a specific objective. Yet many clients we work with suffer from ‘SPOTS’ phenomenon Strategic Plan On The Shelf! There are many reasons why plans fail or are ‘shelved’ and much of it has to do with a lack of key stakeholder involvement, the process for planning is cumbersome, and a lack of buy-in for cascading, maintaining, and sustaining the plan.

Our Strategic Planning Workshop delves into a proven, seven-step planning process and hones the facilitation skills required to collaboratively create and successfully implement strategies that will have the power to shape the future of your organization.

You’ll learn how to prepare, design and facilitate a proven strategic planning process that Facilitation First professional facilitators have used with many of their clients. We’ll investigate how to build buy-in, avoid leader or participant sabotage and lack of accountability, and practice key elements in the process.
