Strategic Planning for Leaders

All organisations aspire to superior performance, but many do not have a thorough understanding of the principles underlying high performance and the strategies required to outclass the competition. The good news is the bedrock for success has not changed. At the heart of every high-performance organisation are its people, its ability to make effective decisions quickly and its ability to execute those decisions with precision. In other words, companies that outperform their competition rely on three essential elements: People, Planning and Performance.

How We Can Help

Rekon’s strategic planning methodology focuses on all aspects people, planning and performing. Driven by the Rekon P3 Method™, we bring the focus back to your core purpose so you can succeed. Using best practice we’ll introduce the tools and processes you need to succeed, such as the Rekon Culture Model™, as well as the DECIDE™ and DIRECT™ processes.

Strategic Planning and the Rekon P3 Method

It is essential that leaders plan and plan well, yet many leaders do not know how to. They do not have a planning process they consistently use in their everyday work. Often the approach is ad hoc.

The P3 Method™ will assist leaders in their strategic planning by:

  • Ensuring decision-making is effective;
  • Providing a single decision-making process that is suitable for all functions and all layers within an organization;
  • Facilitating the cascading of strategy and plans through an entire organisation, thereby driving alignment and organisational buy-in.

We will specifically focus on the DECIDE™ planning process, which gives leaders a very robust planning methodology that can be used at all levels within an organisation, from frontline to boardroom. It allows for a single strategy formulation/planning process that drives alignment, unity of purpose and builds momentum.

By the end, you will be able to:

  • Develop your strategic plan using the people, planning and performing methodology.
  • Identify the values that shape the culture in your organisation and give purpose to your mission and vision.
  • Develop your long-term goals that aligns with your values, mission and vision. Concurrently, identify short-term goals that will send your team moving in the same direction. Breaking long-term goals into smaller, achievable targets makes the journey to success smoother.
  • Sharpen your analytical thinking ability.
  • Accurately assess the environments (e.g., commercial markets, politics, cultural and social trends) that can affect your processes and output.
  • Learn how to use various tools and techniques in creating strategic business plans.
  • Gain the confidence to execute your plan with precision.

Case Studies

Adrian Manning
EGM North and East

I have worked with Rekon Group to deliver training on two business tools known as the “Decide” and “Direct” tools.

The training was cascaded through the business – starting with the executive and rolling down via a number of guided workshops.

Critically, we quickly found that people starting talking about “our intent”, “the environment” what our “options” were; as opposed to tackling the same problems in the same way; or potentially just asking their direct leader for the answer/resolution.  Quickly. People were collaborating and evaluating alternatives instead of jumping to conclusions.  We had a common language and we understood what each other was doing.  We were able to leverage this quite quickly in the business to drive better outcomes and gain some momentum.

The tools were very helpful.  “Doing a Decide” is quite a common call in our business.  The stronger users adopted the Direct template and started to house more critical items such as Business Unit strategy inside this document.  The two tools operate hand in hand.  I know that Rekon Group has since deployed these tools on mobile devices.

Overall, I have found the engagement with Rekon Group to be valuable, both individually and for the team; and would strongly recommend any business seriously consider the programme that Rekon offer.

James Naylor
EGM West Coates Hire

The Rekon Group program was rolled out to the Coates Hire West Business Unit to strengthen our businesses planning and decision making capabilities from the front line right through to our senior leaders to generate improved performance in both financial and safety results.

The program gave us a common process and language when planning and problem solving in all situations from day to day operational execution to yearly and multi year strategic planning processes with equal impact.

We found that the discipline of framing up the situation, what our objective was, what our options were and how to execute the chosen option in a structured process improved the quality and speed of our decisions and outcomes at all levels and allowed our senior leaders to coach our front line leaders in making better decisions by working through the process together making it highly collaborative and practical.

It can be done in 5 minutes for simple problems and also be used in complex situations requiring many inputs and deep thought.

We have used the processes to develop our annual BU business plans the last 4 years and we have seen very strong ownership and outcomes because of the process by all stakeholders involved.

I highly recommend the program to anyone who operates a large complex business to simplify planning and decisions to allow the business to become more agile and empowering to improve business performance.
