What are YOU struggling with?
Including Strategic Change in Your Business and Operational Execution
Once the strategic plan is done, it's time to focus on the business unit operational plans. This is the time for budgeting. Unfortunately, many organizations start with budgeting and try to shoehorn their strategies and actions into the budget. This doesn't provide room for creative decision-making and opportunities that may need to be addressed but aren't in the budget. In a holistic approach, the operational plan or plans are created after the strategic plan is done so each department understands what actions they need to take to support the overall strategic plan. This is critical to ensuring that everyone in the organization is focused on the same strategic initiatives.
When changes are made, whether large scale or small, they impact the emotions and actions of your staff, kicking off a roller coaster of emotions. Understanding how to coach them through these ups and downs to the desired end results takes skill and training. We will help you do this.
"People support what they help create."

We offer these services in English and in Spanish, depending on YOUR needs.
Many organizations and business schools still start with a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) when they begin their annual strategic planning. The problem with this is that they are only looking at today's issues and solving them today. And not really addressing the issues of the future.
Planning needs to start with the future the organization is headed towards, and work backwards from there, including a critical evaluation of the FUTURE external environment. Identifying the future trends you're facing, produces opportunities and threats that need to be addressed today. We take you through a new way to plan that starts with the future desired outcomes and works backwards to identify the strategic actions needed to achieve those future results. Then we show you some tools to use as you implement your plan so you can manage your business more strategically.
