The Business Planning Boot Camp is an intensive full day program which provides an in depth overview of strategy and planning for governance professionals across all sectors and industries. Peter Wright of the Planning Group will take you through a mix of business planning training and workshop discussions to assist in thinking about your own organization's situation, and in optimizing its business planning process.

All participants receive unlimited access to the comprehensive online version of Peter Wright's Strategy and Planning Toolkit. After attending the Boot Camp, you will be able to start applying what you learned immediately to drive real results with your board and within your organization.

Without dumbing it down, the Boot Camp boils down business strategy and planning to a series of systematic, understandable concepts. More importantly, the concepts are presented in a dovetailed fashion to align with the integration that must be present in a successful business planning process.

The program will cover the following:

  1. The integrated planning model
  2. Your role in strategy and planning
  3. The practical vision
  4. Strategic imperatives
  5. The planning / execution gap
  6. Dynamic business planning
  7. Introduction to project and action planning

Who Should Attend

This session is appropriate for any governance professional or leader who has (or would like to have) a role in strategy, oversight or strategy execution. This program is designed for governance professionals of all levels. If you wonder about the following, you should consider attending:

  • What is my board’s role in strategy and oversight?
  • What is my role in helping my board be more successful with strategy?
  • How can I enhance my role in strategy?
  • How can I engage my board more deeply in strategy?
  • How can we create a more meaningful, measurable and compelling strategy?
  • How can we make a stronger connection between the board’s strategy and management execution?
