The Five Failures of Strategic Planning (And How to Avoid Them)
Speakers: Ray Kogan and Cara Bobchek, Kogan & Company
Recorded: June 1, 2011
Length: 90 minutes

When it comes to your firm's future, you can try to shape it or you can just let it happen to you. Strategic planning empowers you to influence your firm's destiny, but before you can employ strategic planning effectively, it's crucial to recognize and avoid its most common pitfalls.

Five Failures of Strategic Planning (and How to Avoid Them) is a "report from the field," as presenters provide real-life examples from engineering firms across the country to help you avoid the five most common failures of strategic planning. This seminar demonstrates strategic planning concepts using real-world examples and case studies.

Studies show that firms that undertake strategic planning are consistently more successful than firms that do not. Through strategic planning, a firm's leaders can decide what they want the firm to be, visualize its potential, understand the circumstances in place today that could stand in the way of achieving that potential, and devise and implement the steps necessary to achieve the future they seek.

By understanding and learning how to avoid five common failures of plan development and implementation that presenters have observed through working with engineering firms nationwide, registrants for this seminar can learn to develop more effective strategic plans that will succeed in their own organizations.

The seminar help registrants:

  • Understand some of the most common failures of strategic planning for design firms based on real-world case studies
  • Avoid planning pitfalls where the process can get bogged
  • Learn how strategic planning can help their firms achieve desired long-term and short-term objectives
  • Develop the most successful strategic planning approach for their firms
