Developing plans doesn’t need to be onerous, but it does require effort and also a commitment to finding the time required to the practice. At my company we all schedule a quarterly managing meeting off site which we use to build plans, to review how plans intend and to address tactical difficulties. There are many advantages to taking the managing team offsite for these types of sessions. You will make collective brainpower of your current management team. A planning session should concentrate on the potential, but in addition recognize the challenges. Most participants should feel protected, everyone should be handled equally and nobody must dominate the talking.
