Hi

I am all ready now to go and have a list of workshops available in May and June.

Traditional Strategic Planning Workshops

The following workshops all use established planning tools to facilitate discussion at a strategic level.  They can be ran as stand-alone sessions or combined as required – please contact me to discuss your requirements and I will put together a package with costs.

Workshop Details Length
Strategy Foundations Using the basic planning tools of PEST and SWOT ensure you know your environment and how it could impact on your business. What are the capabilities in your business to address these impacts and where are the gaps? 2 hours
The Right Strategy? Using BCGs strategy palette ensure your business has the right strategy for its environment.    We will look at how predicable your industry’s environment is and how malleable it is – can you disrupt it?  These factors will determine the optimum strategy for your business. 1.5 hours
Value Creation Enhance understanding of your customers’ needs,  analysing their pain points.   Then using the four actions framework evaluate where your business could generate more value and also where it needs to eliminate non-value adding activities. 2 hours
Business Model Canvas Document your existing business model and the desired target state(s).  What changes are required to move to the target state?  What will be the impact on the drivers of revenue and costs?

If you were starting your business from scratch what would it look like and what unnecessary complexity are you stripping out? 3.5 hours
