Strategic session
Strategic session is the main tool of the owner to determine the company's strategic goals in the long term as well as the plan to achieve them. However, without a proper methodology and approach this tool does not work, and only disorients top managers with its figures and prospects. Without analytical and methodological tools the strategy is most likely to remain a beautiful fantasy and not a real tool for the company scaling and development.
Symptoms of an ineffective strategic session:
It turns into a long meeting
Your team decides to hold a strategic session of its own, but the only thing different from the meeting is that your conversation takes more time. You have planned some figures, a rough action plan, but there are still neither specificity, nor the business growth.
No bright ideas
High quality session brings many new strategic decisions, ideas, options for business models and some alternative ways for business development. In your strategic session, you have not stepped out the familiar frameworks and product packaging.
Your team is in conflict
When professionals exchange ideas – it is an opportunity to develop a good idea. But if the team often points fingers at each other rather than offers the way of development, you are in a threatening situation. Most likely, the session will not be productive, and the management is pulling your business in different directions.
If nothing changes
Your sessions are only going to waste your and your employees' time. What is worse, you will have no really good development strategy, which would be understandable and inspiring for the team. Managers will hold their opinion. Employees will be making unrealistic plans without a proper analytics and a systematic approach within the company. And at the end of the year you will once again listen to excuses of your team, why the reporting results are not in line with the planned financial results.
