We now live in a world of volatility, uncertainty, change, and ambiguity, and traditional planning methods are inadequate for today’s open-ended and ill-defined challenges. These “adaptive” challenges require observations and insights from new perspectives.
Clients tell me they want something different, not the same old agenda, and I am delivering those new innovations. My agendas feature memorable experiences from war games to storytelling to commitment gut checks, and all have final exercises that produce crystal-clear action plans.
Depending on the circumstances, my planning retreats last from 5 hours to two full days, but all share the following common goals:
1 - Gaining perspective on how our business environment has changed,
2 - Seeing ourselves through multiple lenses to discover new opportunity areas,
3 - Developing two Cornerstone Strategies for the coming year, and
4 - Defining plans, accountability assignments, and mileposts to give life to strategies.
