Strategic Planning & Execution Training

Build And Execute
A Strategic Business Plan.
Exceed The Intended Results.

Most traditional strategic plans are lengthy, complicated, and lack a real connection between strategy and execution. They appear promising when viewing them from a high-level, but they do nothing for you! Our mission is to ensure your business has a strategic, actionable plan that puts you and your company in a position to effectively execute the results you seek.

What To Expect From Our Training:

The core curriculum of the strategic planning and execution training service is based on the “One Page Strategic Plan.”

This is a business development system created by Verne Harnish and his team in the book, “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits (2002).”

Through research and performance analysis, we’ll customize our approach to your business needs. Then we begin teaching, facilitating, and training your leaders and their teams to not only create their one-page strategic plan (OPSP), but also how to implement, execute and optimize it.

The OPSP template is ideal for most clients, but we’ve found that customization is critical for quicker, more effective, and lasting results. Recognizing this, we have redesigned it in a format that is easily altered to suit the needs, situation, and goals of each client.

Some of the components of a purposeful, actionable One Page Strategic Plan are:

Core Values

Through our Core Values discovery process, we’ll determine your organization’s fundamental beliefs. These behavior-enhancing principles will help companies like yours determine if they’re heading in the right direction to fulfill their strategic goals.

Core Competencies

Through our Core Competencies assessment, we’ll discover and define your company’s distinguishing capabilities and services. Let’s figure out the best way to set your business apart from your competitors.

Purpose

What’s the fundamental purpose of your business? What problem(s) are you trying to solve for your customers and clients? Sometimes referred to as the “mission,” your company’s purpose is the aspirational North Star that provides your business with clear direction.

Big Hairy Audacious Goal™

Your Big Hairy Audacious Goal™ is the monstrous objective that you’d like your business to accomplish within the next 10-25 years. This goal might seem nearly impossible to tackle at first. However, the key word here is “nearly.” Through this assessment, we’ll help you focus your entire organization around this single, long-term goal.

“Big Rocks”

We’ll break down your Big Hairy Audacious Goal™ into “Big Rocks.” These are large but attainable 3-5 year goals that you and your team can push up the hill toward success together. Success is tough, but we can help.

Key Thrusts and Initiatives

Before you can push the “Big Rocks,” you have to learn how to push yourself and your company. Through this assessment, we’ll discover and document short term goals and initiatives that will put you in a position to push your company’s “Big Rocks.” Let’s keep you headed in the right direction.

Daily Consistent Actions

Live your core values daily by adhering to a set of behaviors that appropriately defines you. Through this exercise, we’ll also help you create an optimal daily workflow for you and your leadership teams so that your business is in position to tackle your Key Thrusts and Initiatives.

Accountabilities

Learn how to appropriately determine and disperse workloads and projects. Accountability yields productivity, and ultimately, growth & success. Establishing responsibility is a great way to determine if you have the correct high-performing employees in the right position.

Strengths, Weaknesses & Trends

What are your business strengths and weaknesses? Are there positive or negative patterns related to these strengths and weaknesses that we can help improve upon or eliminate? What industry trends will have the largest impact on your business? How we head them off with an actionable plan to keep you on track with your goal? With our extensive system, we’ll figure it out and implement any changes necessary.

Brand Promise

The promise is the single most important element of your brand. What tangible and intangible benefits and experiences are you providing your customers? This statement to your customers is an explanation of your company’s value.

Key Targets

Set an appropriate timeline and revenue target for your goals. This exercise differs from the goal-setting exercises, because Key Targets are usually numerically structured.

Critical Leading and Lagging Indicators

Through this assessment, we’ll precisely measure your actual results. We’ll determine the final score of your efforts as they relate to the business strategy we’ve developed. How did you do? What can you improve upon? What did you excel at? Let’s look at the numbers.

What People Are Saying

  • Ken Larson has an outstanding grasp of what is required to develop solid business practices that have the potential of moving a company forward. His enthusiasm and focus bring results.

    Andreas Cordsen Solution Design & Modeling Business Manager, WesternGeco
  • Ken was my executive coach almost ten years ago. He has an ability to engage and motivate individuals as well as remain totally supportive. He stuck with me through thick and thin while I was challenged with some serious health issues while managing a large Not-For-Profit organization with huge stresses and responsibilities. His foresight and personal experiences are the gifts he brings to any conversation. I still call on Ken whenever I need a coach and am in need of some honesty and compassion.

    Alana Newton Leadership Coach, Connect Now Business Network
  • Take a former business professor, add a new venture start-up, then add a high performance executive coach like Ken Larson to help the professor become a national company president. I credit Ken Larson and my TEC membership with fast-forwarding GoForth Institute's success. I would have gotten "there" on my own - but I got "there" alot faster with Ken's help.
