Breakthrough Strategic Planning – Using the FourSight Framework to Accelerate Your Strategic Planning
What if your strategic planning process could bring out the best thinking of your leadership team and enhance their team effectiveness? What if you were able to inject more creativity and innovation into your plans?
This session will show you how. The FourSight Framework helps teams collaborate more effectively. You will learn a common language around problem solving, tips and tricks to Clarify the Challenge, Generate Ideas, Develop and Implement Solutions. Finally, we will lay out the steps to integrate this model into your Strategic Planning Process.
FourSight has been used by organizations big and small around the globe. A sampling of organizations includes: the BBC, Deloitte, Disney, HP, and Nike.
