Strategic Planning

High performing organizations align organizational and individual performance management systems and human capital activities with the organizational strategic plan.  Creating a results-oriented, performance-based culture starts at the top and is cascaded through an agency’s management control tools.  A well designed organizational strategic plan or strategic human capital plan is essential.  OPM Consultants can assist agencies with their strategic planning process.  Given the nature of strategic planning, all projects are tailored to the specific needs of the agency and can range from assisting agencies, cradle to grave, with the step-by-step process for formulating a strategic plan, to facilitating leadership strategic planning off-sites to developing implementation plans.

When facilitating leadership off-sites, a sampling of services that can be provided include:

  • Pre-session development of materials and identifying key documents to be used for strategic planning session.
  • Pre-session discussions with leadership and stakeholders to refine the strategic planning session process goals and outcomes.
  • A validation or development of the mission and vision statements either during the strategic planning session or prior to the session.
  • A Strength Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis exercise to help agencies understand their distinctive organizational competencies and recognize strategic implications.
  • A Strategic Issues Identification exercise to help agencies identify strategic issues – the fundamental challenges affecting the mission, mandates, values, structure, processes, and its management.
  • A Strategic Goal and Objective Identification exercise to help agencies identify strategic goals and objectives to deal with the strategic issues identified. These goals and objectives will be the foundation of the strategic plan.
  • A summary report of the strategic planning session’s activities and outcomes that can be translated into a strategic planning document.
