Strategy Huddle

Strategic planning is a series of strategic decisions that shape what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, all with a focus on the future.

The Strategy Huddle™ is a series of planning meetings designed to integrate strategic thinking with practical planning. At the foundation, organizational and situational assessments establish where an organization is today.  The vision points to the desired future.  The strategies and actions are the plan to close the gap between today and the future. Objectives and goals define and measure success.  Monitoring drives execution and organizational effectiveness. 

The result is a clear description of the future and a well orchestrated path to get there.

Why strategic planning?

 Alignment The strategic plan becomes the guide for all operational and resource decisions in all circumstances for everyone in the organization.
 The guidance creates a sense of focus, consistency, and common purpose that motivates all from the top of the organization to the bottom. Drive
 Stability A well executed strategic plan drives the culture, accomplishments, and resource utilization of an organization, not vice versa.
 A well designed strategic plan helps organizations remain both focused and agile when new opportunities and threats in the marketplace arise. Agility
 SustainabilityThe strategic plan helps leaders concentrate on the big picture rather than the inevitable day-to-day distractions of running an organization.
 Strategic planning allows leaders to lead, not just manage their organizations. Leadership
 Performance Simply put, organizations that plan well and execute achieve more.
