Strategic Planning and Goal Setting Workshop

Many organizations either do not know what their strategy is, or do not know how to execute it successfully.

Strategy Development

The key to developing a short- or long-term business strategy is setting goals for your team and for individuals and then determining deliverables and timelines that will help you achieve your goals. We take your team through an exercise that allows everyone a chance to contribute to the overall business strategy. This starts by determining where your business wants to be after a certain period (1-3 years) and then working either forwards or backwards to plan out significant milestones that will allow the goal to be accomplished. 

Once the exercise is finished, everyone can see what the strategy will look like at a high level. Visually representing your business strategy by laying everything out also allows you to see what months are particularly busy with clusters of deliverables, and where objectives can be spread out. It also visualizes exactly when certain tasks need to be accomplished to keep you on track to achieve your goals.

Goal Setting

One form of managing goals is an OKR, or Objectives and Key Results. 

OKRs help us communicate, measure, and achieve lofty goals.

  • Your *objective* is what you want to accomplish. Your *key results* are how you get there. Since KPIs are measured, they make great key results

We advise and train your team on the development and management of OKRs including how to build them to support your overall business strategy and how to realign and adjust as you move forward or as priorities shift. Establishing both individual and organizational OKRs helps employees understand how their work connects to the broader milestones and overall business objectives.
