PLANNINGWe can help you plan to get from here to there.
Planning is as much about communication as any other single factor. If all employees are involved upfront and throughout the process, there will be a greater sense of ownership and fewer surprises during implementation. Strategic Talent Management will work with you from the beginning to assure everyone is meaningfully involved, that all the issues are out on the table and that the final business plans address areas critical to your immediate growth and improvement goals.
- Culture & Management Study
Prior to launching the planning process, we employ STM assessments to promote teamwork and communication, but also to objectively identify the culture and management style you wish to maintain or develop in your business.
Planning is a perfect topic to involve everyone. Everyone has a unique and relevant perspective on the business. Long-time and new employees often see things managers and owners cannot see.
- Painting a Portrait
Small teams of employees are invited to present their picture of where your business has been and where they see it going. Everyone listens to quick 10-15 minute presentations, which are not judged, just absorbed.
- Focus on the Real Issue
Planning is really about communication. Most planning is top-down, but this exercise enlists everyone’s input into the process. You’ll learn who in your company has passion for particular aspects of the business and may be future leaders.
By pulling together the different pictures about your business, we build a solid platform to review your mission, vision, goals, plans, and the environment. This information, along with our understanding of your culture, management, and communication style, allows STM to deliver targeted support exactly where it’s needed throughout the implementation process.
Business success comes from a series of small efforts by many engaged individuals guided by a shared vision and purpose.
