Strategic Planning

Movers&Shakers has developed significant expertise in strategic planning processes that are underpinned by the latest research, quality stakeholder engagement and a visionary approach.

We are all familiar with the phrase ‘Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail’, but it is amazing how little time many organisations put aside to do this very important work. As a result, strategic plans often end up languishing in filing cabinets gathering dust and vision and mission statements become meaningless wall adornments. There is no ownership of plans by those who are expected to implement them and as a consequence, in the absence of short-lived ‘carrot and stick’ methods, goals and targets are not achieved and organisational change does not occur.

Movers&Shakers is committed to quality strategic planning approaches that engage all stakeholders and result in real organisational improvement and change. These include:

  • Envisioning desired futures
  • Conducting an honest and informed analysis of where the organisational is currently at through environmental audits and SWOT analyses
  • Developing some bold, but achievable goals and objectives
  • Identifying priority actions and timelines; and
  • Establishing performance measures and reporting procedures.

While the development of a visionary, well-thought out and comprehensive strategic plan is critical, Movers&Shakers also believes that the journey to this outcome is equally important. To this end, strategic planning processes are designed to be thought provoking and ‘serious fun’. We utilise a range of experiential learning methodologies and facilitation techniques that encourage high order critical thinking processes and synergistic solutions.
