Strategic Thinking & Business Planning

We work with many SME businesses to transform their capability and capacity to think and act strategically, and to then form a robust business plan by implementing a tailor made strategic planning course for senior individuals.

Our delegates are usually boards of directors, leadership teams or department/sector heads who recognise that an improvement in the strategic thinking and/or shorter term business planning capability of the organisation is key.

Our strategic thinking and business planning training courses focus on the key principles and provide practical tools that can be applied immediately, either as an individual or a group within an organisation.

What We Focus On

Content and approach can be easily customised. Below is where a strategic thinking or business planning workshop would typically focus.

  • Definitions and context
  • The three core components of any great business plan
  • Performance measurement
  • Situational analysis and goal/target setting
  • Defining delivery strategies, tactics and actions
  • Communicating your plan and monitoring progress
  • Review mechanisms

How It Works

Strategic thinking or business planning courses can either run in isolation or as part of a broader programme that also transforms leadership behaviours.  This is to maximise the communication and implementation of any intended strategy or business plan.

Foundational strategy and/or business planning courses can be typically held in one or two days.  These use typically one facilitator and are high energy and interactive.

I often hear myself say “Great opportunity to use your PDW skills” – or, in shorthand, just “PDW!” This has been the most effective training I have done in my career – and to call it training downplays it.

Particularly good feedback from the team on all the practise sessions as this really brings the theory to life – and a great team helping to do that.

Good structure, very well facilitated and the combination of project and personal skills training meant that it was easy to see how the personal skills could be practically applied.
