Strategic Planning

Unlocking Success: Why Strategic Planning Is So Important

Strategic planning is essential for every organization and department, serving as a roadmap to align teams and achieve collective goals. However, developing a strategic plan requires dedicated time and effort to shift focus from day-to-day operations to long-term objectives. Every stakeholder is impacted by the strategic plan, which can introduce pressures, conflicting priorities, and emotions. Our facilitators will help you navigate these complexities and ensure all perspectives are considered.

Embarking on strategic planning may seem daunting, but Intersol offers a structured approach to bring strategic plans to fruition. Here’s how we guide organizations through the process:

Kick-off meeting: Each organization and project is unique. To start the strategic planning process, our expert facilitators meet with the project team to get a full understanding of their requirements. It’s during this crucial step that we ask the important questions that will help prevent issues and minimize risk during the project. We are experienced at identifying potential problems and are experts at helping organizations navigate the path to success.

Environmental Scan: Next, our team will conduct an environmental scan, which involves gathering input from all levels of your organization so we can develop a clear idea of opinions and issues. Depending on the project, this can be done using surveys, interviews, or stakeholder engagement discussions. Our facilitative techniques help get to the root of the issues and go beyond just the surface. It means we have more to work with in the end.

Analysis and Report: After completing the environmental scan, our team will analyze the data and prepare an in-depth summary report outlining the results, including cross-cutting issues and trends.

Senior Management Workshop: Finally, after all the data has been collected and analyzed, our experts facilitate a discussion around the outcomes so problem areas can be addressed and a plan can be developed. The plan needs to be realistic and feasible for the organization – this is critical for adoption and success. We assist in taking into account all levels of the organization and effectively communicating the action plan.
