“Organizations perform strategic planning, but do not plan strategically.” So starts this short white paper on why your Strategic Planning process has everyone’s eyes rolling, spends lots of time, and produces a “plan” that suddenly finds no one following. Strategy matters only when it comprehensible and meaning to managers that control resources and schedules, to those that make actionable decisions. We fail not in our willingness to think new ideas and directions, but in how we scope out our planning exercise. What we need is “Strategy Made Plannable” so that actions can follow. Read or download now an explanation of why it hurts now and a way to untangle the process to get to better outcomes. If this is a business problem you and your team face, contact us for a free “venting” (consultation).
