What is Strategy Planning Day, and Why Is It Important?
Strategy Planning Day is an event dedicated to developing a strategic plan that outlines the objectives and goals of your business for the next three to five years. Your business needs to have a clear strategy plan as it helps your employees stay focused on their goals and identify growth opportunities.
During Strategy Planning Day, you and your team will create a strategic plan that outlines your objectives, strategies, and tactics. Planning will focus on all verticals of your business like Finance, Operations, Marketing, Sales, Recruitment, Infrastructure, Teams and Technology. You will also engage in strategic planning activities such as brainstorming, SWOT analysis, and goal-setting exercises.
Topics Covered During The Strategic Planning Process.
Your coach will cover the below topics as part of your planning day:
- 3 or 5-year vision
- 12-18 month personal goals review (for small businesses)
- 12-18 month business goals review and orbit plan
- Business opportunities and challenges
- 12-18 month goal schedule
- Personal Development Plan
You will walk away with a clear schedule for the next 12-18 months, broken into quarters and months so that you know what needs to be done and have the confidence that you can achieve it.
Who Should Attend This Session?
This session is suitable for solo traders, small, and medium-size business owners. It is also applicable for companies with multiple directors that need an alignment to achieve their goals.
Would You Like To Know More Details?
Most people don’t plan for their business, and those who do often get bogged down in detail. Perhaps you’ve googled “Business Plan Template”, downloaded a few, and sat there for hours going through it and feeling baffled. You may have even completed one of those plans, only to find that you never actually followed the plan or even looked at it. Sadly these experiences lead many to decide that “Business planning doesn’t work”. It’s an understandable conclusion, but it’s more about the method that doesn’t work well.
Don’t worry; we are here to help you create a business plan that is simple and one that you will use and get great results! It works, AND you’ll enjoy it! We’ve had hundreds of people complete these planning days, with many returning year after year to re-plan.
There’s minimum preparation required for the day, but you can show up and achieve everything necessary. However, most people like to think and make a few notes to prepare. In this case, we offer a few suggestions that only take an hour or two – thinking about your personal and business goals – what would make you proud of your business over the coming years? It’s as simple as that.
Would a 3-5-year plan be complicated and much work? We keep this simple too. A single sheet of paper that breaks your business down into four main areas and maps the progression from now to five years, showing each aspect growing from year to year. In case you’re curious, the template we use is a version of what’s known as a Vision Orbit diagram (google it if interested, but know that we use a different version that’s better suited to planning).
12-18 Month Goals
The main takeaway from the day in terms of what you’ll use going forward is a simple ‘banner’ containing all your critical goals on an 18-month schedule. Most people put this on their walls, which is a constant guide and reminder to keep them on track. For people who work with a coach or an accountability partner, this forms a specific way for you to know what needs to be done to stay on track.
Why 18 months instead of 12? If you plan just 12 months, there’s a risk of looking short-term by the end of the year. The concept is to plan 18 months and re-plan every 12 months; This way, you’re always ready for what’s on the horizon and looking ahead.
We Guarantee Results
As with everything we do, we guarantee results. At the end of the session, the coach presenting it will ask you, “Has today and the plans you’ve created been worth every penny of your investment? If not, pay what you feel it was worth – and if you don’t feel it provided any value at all, then pay us nothing!”. You may or may not be surprised to know that across twenty-three years and hundreds of delegates, no one has ever requested a reduction in the investment, let alone a full refund. We’re open to it happening one day. Still, by guaranteeing it, we’re very conscious of our role – our job is to deliver even more value than we charge, and that’s what we do.
