We follow our 6 step PPFacilitate methodology below when conducting Strategic Planning facilitation:
Facilitation Planning : Our methodology ensures that all parties are prepared in advance for the strategic planning session. We meet with key stakeholders to get a thorough understanding of the environment and objectives for the strategic planning workshop. A Strategic Planning Facilitation plan is articulated and all documentation is signed-off by the client and PM Academy.
Conduct Facilitation : Based on our 6 step PPFacilitate methodology the Strategic Planning sessions are facilitated with the identified programme or project stakeholders. The sessions are conducted using a variety of tools and techniques obtaining the maximum participation from attendees and keeping the sessions focussed on delivering on the objectives.
Compile Draft Documents : We formalise the required documents and ensure that all requirements are adhered to.
Agree Draft Report : The draft Strategic Planning documentation is distributed, presented, discussed and agreed with management and stakeholders. This confirms relevance, accuracy and ensures strategic buy-it.
Handover and Closure : The final Strategic Planning documentation is formally handed over to the client. The assignment is formally closed.
