The School of Business & Law Executive Team had a lot of inputs, frameworks and competing pressures feeding into their strategic planning process and only a single day to kick start most of their thinking and discussions as a group.
We helped the Team to design and deliver a single day where we could all
- Review the School's progress in 2016,
- Align the School with the high level University direction,
- Strategically scan the operating environment,
- Develop a specific mission statement and an agreed on a set of corresponding strategic objectives.
The key was to conduct short bursts of small group work around key focus question as a way to identify strategic 'sighters' in the complexity and then spend considerable time after lunch almost 'triangulating' the School's position and strategic imperatives.
Following their hard work at the one-day workshop, the School Executive Team was presented with a first cut Draft Strategic Plan. This was followed by a brief follow-up session with Tuna Blue to reflect, tuck in any loose ends and plan operationalisation with staff.
