No business in Pittsburgh, PA can hope to succeed. Instead, a leadership team must create an effective plan for its future success. Strategic planning provides an organization with a clear direction, goals, and purpose. In addition, an effective strategic plan allows all team members to see where they fit, contribute, and thrive in accomplishing the organization’s goals.
Interaction Dynamics Group recommends a 3-Phased Strategic Planning approach.
- Aspirational Thinking
- Compelling Planning Session
- Disciplined Follow Through
This proven process reduces the tendency for individual agendas to overly influence the plan, assures broad-based input to the overall plan, and supports the plan’s successful implementation. The plan becomes an active tool for guiding decision-making, building teamwork, and establishing open accountability. It allows the team to make intentional directional adjustments when the working environment changes or disruptions occur.
