ca 15 minutes on strategic plans

· June 18, 2015

This is the third presentation I’ve done on mission, vision and strategic plans (and other stuff too). The time has come to strategic plans.

A strategic plan outlines our ideas, suggestions and plans for taking us from where we are today to … closer to the vision.

Here’s all the post in the series (the links will work as I post them):

Please read the reason and ideas behind the entire series in the first post.

First of all I realized that we often miss the “where we are today” part of doing a strategic plan, so I have a little discussion about that in the presentation.

Then I talk a little bit about measurements and that our plans need to be flexible for the change coming. I hint about the upcoming Impact Mapping presentation that helps with that.

As for example, this time I had to make an example up. This is telling in it self since this is not how a company THINKs that they will outsmart the competition. Most companies are not willing to give that up, as they do with the mission and vision.

I end the presentation with a short discussion about the Scientific method and how that can help us to construct experiments rather than plans that we “need” to execute.

I hope you like it - love your feedback!

And yes - the title of the slides suggest that this is a bit longer than it is… But it says ca, right :)
