We combine expert facilitators with a proven strategic planning methodology, the Drivers Model, to make sure your energy and time that goes into building a quality plan pays off.
How Strategic Planning Works
Why You Need a Strategy
Taking the time to develop strategy is not only necessary, but critical to the long-term success and health of your organization. Accept it – you need a plan to thrive in today’s business economy whether you’re a corporation, a non-profit, or a government agency. Uncover other critical reasons to develop your organization’s strategy today.
How to Choose Your Facilitator
Strategic planning is a big task. Our clients often tell us that strategic planning is so challenging and so vital, that it cannot afford to be depended on by the participants themselves to lead. Get the right help. Professional facilitators will guide the group to excel as a team in the process.
You: The Drivers Model
The Drivers Model, Leadership Strategies’ strategic planning methodology, provides an approach that is elegantly simple yet robust and comprehensive enough to serve both a multi-billion-dollar corporation and a small, non-profit organization. Our methodology is fully scalable to meet your organization’s structure and size. Through our organized, three-phased approach, strategic planning will not be such a daunting task.
Your Strategy Document: What it Looks Like
Whether you’re executing a long-term strategy process or simply holding a two-day planning retreat, the Drivers Model provides you with five primary deliverables that are critical to the successful implementation of your plan.
Why do teams typically need shared strategies?
To Set Direction and Priorities
Having competing priority initiatives typically translates to wasted opportunity; define your organization’s view of success and related priorities that will drive desired outcomes
To Create Team Alignment
Different departments working to achieve separate organizational aims is counterproductive; get everyone moving together towards a common destination
To Simplify Decision-Making
Leaders oftentimes have trouble saying “no” to new ideas or potential initiatives; having clear and agreed upon priorities make it easier to remain focused
To Communicate the Message
When leaders walk around with virtual strategies locked in their heads, few people act on them; allow staff, suppliers, and even customers to help your organization reach its potential
The Drivers Model
Simple, yet robust, The Drivers Model is our proven methodology for helping teams identify the core issues and construct effective strategies for solving them. Completely scalable to the strategy development needs of Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, government agencies, small departments, and more.
