Strategic Planning & Deployment
Strategy is more than a plan. Strategy yields targeted results through focused action.
Fox Valley Technical College's strategic planning services are focused on helping business leaders change their results. We partner with FVTC facilitators or senior business advisors who are dedicated to this work. Their mission is to help organizations develop and deploy strategy. Services align to Fox Valley Technical College's broad portfolio of programs and training that work in concert with your strategic plans to develop the skills and capabilities needed to realize business results.
The strategic planning services available help organizations in four areas necessary to realize outcomes from strategic planning. These four elements, **leadership**, **strategy**, **execution** and **change management**, take strategy beyond an annual event and incorporate it into day-to-day work. Take a closer look and contact us for a complimentary consultation.
Leadership prepares and helps people develop strategy and obtain results. Leaders are outcome multipliers making the people around them more effective than they would be without the leader being there. Key to leading is making communication an ongoing process, deploying a coherent decision making framework and creating clear accountability. Our services follow a results-based definition that ties progress in leadership development to improved business outcomes. *Leadership Services* include:
* Lominger VOICES 360 Assessment
* Leadership Development Planning
* Executive Coaching
* Succession Planning
Strategy is the means by which leaders develop, communicate and realize organizational goals. Strategy is grounded in an organization's core capabilities and is a combination of a structured process controlled by governance that fosters adjustments as the plan evolves. Our advisors use an approach that emphasizes doing over planning. We help leaders align all efforts in the organization to create strategic value. Strategic decision making is integrated into day-to-day accountabilities. This simplifies strategy into deployable components that can be cascaded and acted upon. *Strategy Services* include:
* Strategic Assessment Workshops
* Strategy Development
* Strategy Deployment & Cascade
* Risk Management
Execution is the preparation and support of the organization in deploying and carrying out strategy. Execution is where the most day-to-day effort is exerted. Incorporating strategy into day-to-day execution is essential to realizing results and preventing strategy from becoming the thing that people never get around to doing. Execution involves managing resources to obtain operational and strategic outcomes in a changing landscape. *Execution Services* include:
* Metrics Development
* Responsibility Cascade
* Landscape Analysis
* Role Definition
The plan is implemented as it was laid out in the development stage. Change management is the process that keeps the plan current. Information that was unavailable when the plan was developed is evaluated, decisions are made and the plan is adapted. Adjustments must be introduced in a timely way while avoiding adjustments so frequent as to create uncertainty and inhibit progress. Change management is an innovation process that helps the organization create processes, products and leadership practices needed to sustain success. *Change Management Services* include:
* Strategy Deployment
* Change Management Planning
* Portfolio Decision Making
* Influence & Acceptance Strategies
