Business and Team Planning

This workshop gives delegates a welcome chance to sit down in an invigorating and comfortable environment and think about where they want their organisation and team to go, and how. With a little input on the principles and techniques behind effective business and team planning, the main focus is on the production of a real working document for them to use as the basis of their activities in the coming year.

Learning Aims

· a set of agreed objectives for their own organisation
· a plan for each team / business area
· improved understanding of each others’ challenges and issues
· the ability to plan and review performance in the future
