Setting the brief
Curiosity is the spark behind the spark of every great idea. Get clarity on the vision, mission, or goals. Unpack the strategy and get everyone on the team up to speed.
Reframing the problem
When nothing goes right... Go left. Look at the problem through a different lens, and turn it around. Get really clear on what your goals are.
Strategy requires thought, tactics require observation. Unpack the assets at your disposal. Bring in different experiences and ideas. Look for options.
If it can go wrong, it will. Especially if people are involved. Define the ‘happy path’ — the assumptions we make for how this will go. Now try to knock the plan off its path.
Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable. Work through the few well-focused actions that will move you to your outcome.
“How do I build a better plan?”
Too often, businesses are busy executing, but they’re not executing on the strategy. Products are slow to market, sales slump, initiatives are put on hold — all in the gap between strategy and execution.
Plans are essential to get people moving forward, to get them working on the same page. But typical planning processes don’t work. We wildly under-estimate how long things will take. We set unrealistic deadlines. We avoid tough decisions. We spend too long planning and not enough time doing.
Outcome Planning is here to help you build a better plan. It’s an agile approach to planning with simple, proven, practical steps. Outcome Planning is a ‘How’ that gets your people on the same page, connects the dots between strategy and tactics, drives action on your team, and moves work forward.
