This is a facilitated two-day workshop for business leaders who are required to implement a corporate strategy. This workshop will give them their best starting point – to create a corresponding strategy for their unit/functional area and teams.
“A strong corporate culture is the invisible hand which guides how things are done in an organisation. The phrase, ‘you just can’t do that here,’ is extremely powerful: more so than written rules or policy manuals.”
Andrew S Grove, former CEO, Intel
The workshop facilitator will act as coach and challenger, to guide participants through the following questions:
- Create your own vision: where do we want to go?
- Map your journey: how do we plan to get there?
- Know your desired outcomes: how will we know we are there?
- Prioritise projects: what will we do to get there? What will we stop doing? What will be new? What will be continued?
- Organisational and team structures: how will we organise ourselves? What will have to change?
- Communicate and cascade: how will we communicate the vision and strategic imperatives?
- A look in the mirror: am I equipped to lead this change? What kind of leader will I have to be and how do I do that?
- Action: who will do what and when? What do I personally have to do?
- Personal and departmental development plans: what new/improved skills do we need?
- Managing change: key models and how to use them, Kotter’s 8 phases of change, Lewin’s change model and others.
