The Strategic Planning Journey with BSC
Strategic Planning Journey (utilising BSC) – (Stage 1)
5-Day Back-to-Back Programme
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that is changing really quickly, the
only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking calculated risks”.
Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO and Founder)
How this programme currently fits :
Most organisations (both in the private and public sectors) focus primarily on their financial performance (past and future) be that in terms of profit, or how they manage their budgets, which of course is a vital part of any strategy.
However, very few consider other key elements which are critical to achieving their strategic goals, for example;
How do we define our brand, culture and core values? what do our external customers require in this fast-moving/changing global market?
what do our internal customers (employees and other key stakeholders) want, need and expect? can our existing internal resources deliver our planned future strategy and how will we meet our Corporate and Social Responsibilities?
It is these areas and others, that this programme focuses on. Each of these elements are a crucial part of any organisations strategic journey, and form part of any balanced scorecard.
By the end of the programme, each delegate/organisation will have the key building blocks of a strategic plan in place.

The Benefits of Attending this Interactive Programme
The The Strategic Development Journey with BSC answers the challenge of ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’. Over these five days, the delegates will have the opportunity to step out of their organisations day-to-day functional processes and have the luxury of focusing on their future prosperity and success.
By the end of the programme each person will have a broad strategic plan to take back to fine-tune with other members of their strategic teams.
NOTE: PRISM Profiling tool
We utilise the PRISM Brainmapping tool when designing, implementing and maintaining your BSC (strategic plan). The tool has been developed using the fastpaced advances in Neuroscience and has been designed to measure behaviours of individuals and teams in the
workplace in 22 different areas, allowing us to assess the probability of a person (or teams) delivering high performance in any given
By understanding your own and other colleagues preferred behaviours, and how individuals’ function under pressure, as well as identifying other areas of strengths and development, it simplifies the process of selecting individuals and teams for specific roles, initiative’s or projects around your strategy.
We can deliver this programme in-house, a one- or two-day course depending on the size of the group, budget and level of topics required to be covered.
- Free 45 minute follow up coaching session for all participants
