Overview

Get management and emplyee support for your organization's new strategic direction with these electrifying group activities. Strategic plans are successfuly implemented only when the planning process itself engages every stakeholder and gives everyone a genuine sense of "ownership" of the new organizational strategy. High Impact Tools and Acitivities for Strategic Planning offers you all the practical resources to generate that passionate involvement, with dozens of radical group acitivities to help you facilitate the planning process for a team or an entire organization. This unique handbook for consultants, trainers, and managers brings you 40 creative, field-tested activities that jump-start strategic planning meetings, inspire new ways of thinking, and build the momentum critical to any change effort. Unlike most books on strategic planning, Hihg Impact Tools and Acitivities for Strategic Planning gives you step-by-step instructions for targeted activities to help an organization: Kick off planning efforts that create energy, hope, and clarity of purpose; Turn "data gathering" from employees and management into a forum for open communication; Clarify and create its core values, mission, and vision statements; Monitor and assess planning efforts to ensure accountability; Establish ongoing planning to allow proactive—not reactive—responses to changing environments and organizational priorities. Featuring case studies that detail how the book's activities galvanize planning efforts of various sizes and complexity, High Impact Tools and Activities for Strategic Planning enables you to pump new blood into even the most anemic planning process and build a greater sense of empowerment and commitment throughout an organization.
