The Action Planning Workshop™ Process

Core Activities

  1. Planning and Pre-Work
    1. Senior sponsors participate in 30-minute course-design calls to determine scope and direction of the Action Planning activity (the direction can be the same for each participant or uniquely tailored to their market/function).
    2. Identify planning teams.
    3. Participants complete workshop pre-work.
  2. Run Simulated Company, Applying Business Fundamentals
    1. Participants engage in learning/debate/discussion using a state-of-the-art business simulation.
    2. Participant teams compete against one another in a multi-year competition where Action Planning is practiced and refined in the simulated marketplace.
  3. Apply Concepts Learned to Planning Sessions
    1. At specific times during the workshop participants disengage from the simulation to complete at least two real-world planning assignments.
    2. Assignment 1: Situation Analysis/SWOT.
    3. Assignment 2: Objective/Goal Setting and Action Planning.

  • “The planning portion of the Simulation helps a team uncover the most important goals and helps to focus the short term activities on those goals.”
  • “I spent time with peers and got a lot of information to do local planning.”
  • “Our folks came away feeling more empowered and with a better appreciation of strategic actions they can put in place to really make a difference.”
