Learn How Strategic Planning Can Strengthen Your Organization

Executives use strategic planning for strategic analysis and competitive positioning, but many do not use the power of the planning process to strengthen the organization itself.  When done well, strategic planning produces a clear and robust strategy, along with highly desirable internal benefits:

  • An energized, unified and committed management team
  • A clear set of beliefs shared among managers
  • Improved collective strategic thinking capabilities
  • A management culture based on strategic thinking
  • An effective implementation process

A strong management team has the flexibility to respond quickly to pressures from innovation and competition.  Management flexibility is important for the strategy to remain a “living” document.

Transformative Strategic Planning® is a research-based methodology designed by Dr. Luis G. Flores, in partnership with a Fortune 500 organization, to develop a strong strategy and the management fortitude to implement it successfully.  Dr. Flores conducts executive seminars on Transformative Strategic Planning® world-wide.  The next executive seminar is in Kuala Lumpur on February 13-14, 2017 at Pacific Regency Hotel Suites.  For more information, download the brochure here.

The intensive two-full day Transformative Strategic Planning® workshop begins with an analysis of the different approaches to the understanding of strategy and strategic management.  Dr. Luis Flores emphasizes the importance of highly invoved managers who offer their functional expertise formulate and enforce the strategic plan. He empowers business leaders to engage their entire management team.

Building the understanding of strategy further, the second session clarifies the misinterpretations of the meaning and power of strategy.  Dr. Flores explains what truly makes a strategy effective.   The third session analyzes the building blocks of strategic planning. Dr. Flores demystifies the complex planning process and encourages strategic competitiveness.  In these sessions, he also highlights the dysfunctional strategies that companies should avoid.  Ending day one, the fourth session evaluates the most powerful concepts in the strategic success of a company and names additional concepts required in strategic planning.

Whereas day one focuses on the vision, analysis and building blocks for strategic planning, day two concentrates on making a strategy work with good direction, effective implementation, motivational tactics and proper measurement.  The fifth session clarifies the misconception of the strategic planning process itself.  Dr. Flores illuminates how the process should work and why managers should use Transformative Strategic Planning® methodology.

Getting into the mechanics of strategic planning, session six systematizes strategic planning so that it produces change and action.  Transformative Strategic Planning® results in powerful strategic plan generation and unifies and energizes management teams.  Session seven sets up an implementation process that ensures smooth and effective plan implementation.  Dr. Flores teaches a replicable process—based on continual managerial input and involvement—that results in sustainable strategic plan implementation.

The workshop concludes with discussion of industry-specific concerns of the executives in attendance.  Because the companies represented may do business globally and have managers in different countries, the seminar includes the applicability of the concepts across nations and cultures.
