Frank Stasiowski and Charles Nelson have both assisted a wide variety of Australian & New Zealand design firms to establish viable strategic planning programs – and in some cases to rethink and revitalise existing programs.
We do this in a variety of settings – sometimes as a part of an Executive Advisor role, sometimes as an initial component of an Ownership & Leadership Transition program or Merger & Acquisition program, and sometimes we simply facilitate strategic planning retreats as an outside, objective partner.
The format will vary to suit the firm and the objectives of the planning process, but most commonly it takes a full day of facilitation, and typically a half or full day of preparation, and a follow-up half day to prepare and present a report (unless someone in the firm can do that).
Sometimes a “brainstorming” component is useful, but in most cases, using a “gap analysis” model is the most efficient.
This model always concludes with an assignment of responsibilities for every item in the agreed plan, with the understanding that every participant in the retreat will have specific responsibility for making part of it happen – and a time line to do it.
