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):
- ca 10 minutes on Mission statements
- ca 10 minutes on Vision statements
- ca 15 minutes on Strategic plans (this post)
- ca 15 minutes on Impact mapping
- ca 15 minutes on kanban
- ca 10 minutes on root cause analysis
- ca 10 minutes on effective meetings
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 :)
