Annual planning meetings are common events at the beginning of a new calendar year.
Companies look ahead to a new year of challenges and opportunities – whether your company is discussing where it can save money, how it measures progress & targets, what difference technology will make and what the company is doing to innovate & grow?
Corporate strategic planning sessions are important to turn the lofty dreams and aspirations into action – but one needs a realistic achievable plan. It’s a good idea to review your progress from the last planning session and set new business goals including sales revenues and net profits. So you enthusiastically organize a half day planning session in the boardroom to set the new year in motion. By lunch-time, you realize that you haven’t really touched sides and your focused realistic action plan has not materialised!
Cape Point Route is not in the business of facilitating nor implementing your company strategy… we are in the business of creating space for you to do that! Here are some planning suggestions.
- Select a meeting location conducive to good discussion – Get Out of the Office!
- Eliminate distractions during the meeting (cell phones, office background noise)
- Have specific start and end times per session.
- It is a mistake to cram too much into a limited amount of time – break up the sessions to manageable sectors
- Equally bad: Don’t try to accomplish more by having a meeting that drags on for too long each day.
- Create some ebb and flow – take a break, include an ice-breaker or a fun teambuilding activity to keep the energy, innovation and collaboration for major breakthroughs in your business in 2016.
