Achieving Business Excellence with John Spence

Thoughts on Strategic Planning

In this video I share some of my thinking around strategic planning, strategic planning retreats, execution of the plan and keeping your people focused and engaged around the plan. I hope you find this of value and will share it with your colleagues.

    I’ve been involved with a lot of great plans that went nowhere because the execution was an abhorent failure. Couldn’t agree more with this.

  2. My experience in the corporate world is the same complicated strategic plan and no discussion on implementation and execution, except maybe being assigned to one of the functional areas but seldom a timeline.
    Having something simple, clear, with assignments, due dates, and provision of resources to make it happen are a good starting point.
