FindaFacilitator’s recommended Core Team facilitators use The Drivers Model, which is a proven methodology developed by Leadership Strategies, Inc. for helping an organization identify its business problems and construct an effective strategic plan of action for solving these problems. The model is fully scalable and works for Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, government agencies, field offices, individual departments, work teams, and more. One thing these groups have in common is a similar group of concerns when preparing for strategic planning:
Establishing a clearly defined strategic direction
Making sure the plan is actionable
Aligning the organization with the priorities of the plan
Getting all stakeholders engaged in the process
Agreeing on a planning process and definitions
Ensuring the plan addresses specific business-related issues
Where are we now?
Understanding the current situation is vital to driving success. Often, planning teams summarize the current situation information into a SWOT: a summary of the organizations key strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.
Where do we want to be?
The heart of strategic direction setting is this second step. In The Drivers Model, the information from the situation assessment is combined with the understanding of future trends to develop the vision statement and the mission statement.
How will we get there? And, how will we monitor progress and make adjustments?
The key value to strategy development comes in the implementation of the plan. However, all too often, strategic plans become artifacts on a leader’s bookshelf. The Drivers Model includes an implementation and monitoring phase to be sure this doesn’t happen!
No matter what concerns you are facing, our skilled strategic planning facilitator will help you tackle every obstacle, facilitate a workshop to construct a strategic plan for your organization, and guide you through implementation with checkpoints to keep your plan on track.
