New Workshop: "How To Develop Your Strategic Plan In A Way That Is Concise, Completed in 1 Day, & Is Actually Strategic"

We see over 1,000 strategic plans a year.  Over 80% of them are useless.  This workshop will give you the tools and processes to ensure your strategic plan is not one of the useless ones.

This workshop will provide you with the most robust, time-efficient planning techniques to provide a focused, vision driven strategic plan, with value added components that embed the strategic plan into the governance and operational framework of the organisation.  Powerful success measures, a unique ethics filter, strategic reporting frameworks and strategic thinking processes are end results of a good strategic planning process.

Steven Bowman and Jodie Willmer are some of the most experienced strategic plan facilitators available, with extensive knowledge and expertise providing unique and powerful strategic plans that work.  They have worked with some of the world’s most experienced strategic planners, and have facilitated and taught strategic planning to many hundreds of organizations, continually updating their methodology to encompass the best and most efficient strategic planning methods.
