Every company does Strategic Planning, right? EXOS asks every company we meet, “Are you practicing a yearly strategic planning process?” Most say yes, but when asked to produce a document or recite the main initiatives, the response is… crickets!
EXOS has a solution that keeps your company’s strategic plan front and center, for all in the company to see and participate in. We produce an actual visual Strategic RoadMap™ in the form of a poster, bright and shiny, that is easy to refer to in the midst of leadership activities throughout the year. Here’s a brief video on the impact of our process for one client: http://bit.ly/EXOStestimonial_GerdingCompanies
The full process of Strategic Planning follows certain steps:
Start with Leadership and Executive Functioning – must be in place to get anything else done!
Get buy-in from your people on the front lines using our Business Performance Analysis™
Get the stakeholders away on a retreat to conduct formal strategic planning (with the voice of employees in mind)
Implement OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) as a method to carry out each and every initiative.
It works! Our companies are finding this process alone is causing exponential growth, both in dollars and effectiveness.
