Outcome Planning

Your Challenge:

“People aren’t connecting their day to day actions to our broader strategy.”


Execution validates strategy. But too often we’re not executing the strategy. We’re missing the link between day-to-day actions and the businesses vision, mission and purpose. Employees are rule-bound and either transact around policy and procedure, or choose to do what they did yesterday.

In the one-day Critical Thinking workshop, you’ll learn how to create outcomes in a reasoned, logical and systematic way. Critical Thinking allows an organization to adopt focused actions that move strategy forward.

At the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Overcome functional fixedness to solve a problem in a new way.

  • Create and test ideas which can lead to concrete outcomes.

  • Walk away with tangible actions against the strategy that they can execute on.

Professional skills gained:

  • Critical Thinking

  • Strategic Thinking

  • Execution

  • Planning

Move the strategy from concept to plan that maps to a concrete outcome.

Sample one-day agenda

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Welcome and introductions

How can we create simple, focused actions that can move this strategy forward?


The 'Brief'

The strategy is presented by the leader to the team.


The 'Reframe'

Work to a different outcome to accomplish our goals.


The 'Create'

Take stock of our current assets. How we will harness them in pursuit of our goals?


The 'Test'

What factors in our culture do we need to shift? What behaviors need to change?


The 'Action'

Identify three focused actions and the steps needed to accomplish them.


NOTE. The workshop is highly interactive and tailored to your needs. Participants may be asked to submit content ahead of time. A subset of these are chosen to discuss in small groups. This workshop is part of fassforward's Lead Series.
