In our strategy planning sessions, we use loads of visual canvas maps to chart critical milestones, conversations shared on “post its” and views of the people you need to work with to get there. Here are some visual canvas maps that we have used in our training sessions. 

What will it take to reach our vision statement

  • Using the vision statement of the organization we work with
  • Brainstorm and facilitate the session to list what it takes for the team to strive towards its vision statement

Some times the goals set can become fuzzy?

Goal statements can be compartmentalised too, when they become fuzzy

  • Targets
  • Costs
  • People involved

These markers can be changed pending the needs of the organization.

Using models to get people to think, “SOLUTIONS” not problems

If bottlenecks are reached, do consider the Solution Focus Model, to lead the discussions

  • Define the problem
  • Detail the end state in mind without the “Problem”, the future perfect that you want to achieve
  • Detail what the future looks like if the “Problem” is not addressed 

Reflect on how you got to where you are

Reflecting on your past success can help you define where you want to go. Do think about the plane metaphor that we have shared here. Once gain you may want to twig the facilitative questions to meet your needs. 

We use tools such as Belbin Team roles in tandem with our strategy planning session. Our strategy planning session are usually designed differently for the different organisations we have worked. The needs are different, the challenges can be varied. Do get in touch with us, we can share with you the approaches that we have taken with the companies we have worked with.
