What companies say about our Team Planning Workshops:
Having been integral to the organic growth of a 3rd generation family company, the existing senior management team had limited skills and experience in providing professional leadership and meaningful strategy to the operation and development of the business. The & Coaching Team Planning Workshop quickly and effectively unpicked the key requirements holding back the development of the business and identified critical factors which required specific consideration and change in order to dramatically improve managerial and operational performance.
Undertaking the workshop proved to a be a moment of absolute clarity for the team with so many obvious and fundamental business requirements being identified within a short space of time with the physical involvement in the workshop bringing about a united team, each member departing having a new found clarity on requirements directly linked to their specific parts of the business.
The changes that have subsequently taken place have had a profound effect on the effective organisation of the business with huge improvement in leadership, strategy, systems, quality and staff motivation, all of which have resulted in a significant increase in turnover, profitability and market reputation.
For an enthusiastic team with good production experience but who required guidance and direction in developing their business management skills, this workshop has proved to be hugely beneficial.

What is Team Planning?
It is not about "what business should we be in?" Nor about "what will our industry look like in 10 years' time?" That's strategic planning.
The quality approach to planning involves a short, structured, and intensive planning workshop, undertaken by the entire management team, guided by an experienced and objective planning consultant.
Its purpose is to develop a plan that covers the important topics for the particular organisation through a short consultancy engagement. The planning focuses on the remit of the organisation, the major objectives, the factors that are critical to achieving the goal and objectives, and the business processes in which quality improvements will yield the greatest immediate business benefits.
The output from the work is a plan that the management team are committed to and which they have the confidence and ability to carry out. The plan will address those topics that are the most important to the business, now.
Two effects of the planning work are "team building" and "skills transfer" so that the managers are able to carry through the plan as a team and they can include all their staff in the development and success of the plan.
The management team develop the plan, for their benefit.
The planning consultant acts as the facilitator; he does not prescribe solutions and has no "hidden agenda" to promote - other than the quality of the final plan. The consultant captures all of the workshop conclusions, issues, and actions in a report to the sponsor

Team planning addresses the questions:
"What should we, as a management team, really focus on in the foreseeable future to ensure we succeed in our business aims?
What should be the major elements of our plan?
Who should be accountable for which aspects of our plan?
What are our next steps, and how do we manage the changes involved?"
