WHY STRATEGIC PLANS FAIL TO GROW

  • It takes too much time - and speed is not important part of the structure. 

  • The team isn’t agile enough.

  • It’s not strategic planning, its strategy and execution. Just developing a plan is not effective unless you have a strategy for execution as well.

  • The right players are not in the room.  You only have senior players and do not include future leaders. There isn’t enough diversity involved. Smaller is not better.

  • The CEO leads the planning session.  Even if you are the best CEO in the world everyone has their own bias and most associates will follow the leader verses giving an objective opinion

The ITB™ method and approach is light years ahead of all previous efforts as attested by all our clients that have tried the process. It harnessed the assembled team, created the 3 year strategic plan with built in ownership for execution.

 

WHY STRATEGIC PLANS THRIVE

  1. Speed to execution– It is a disciplined impartial leadership process. We facilitate the process and you bring your knowledge. We then collect it and put it in a usable form

  2. Inviting the right players – A mix of senior leadership and up and coming members to gain commitment. A right amount would be around 12-15 in the room with both leadership and rising stars. This will create diversity and gain commitment of the whole team.

  3. All the participants of the plan will own it because they shared in the journey of developing it.  Everyone has what they need to nourish the work that was done here.
