Tailored Workshops Designed for your organisation
Our Agile Strategic Planning and Focused Key Performance Indicators public courses are a great introduction to our method. But if you have a time-poor management team you may need a tailored workshop. This is designed specifically for your organisation and is based on best practice and examples from your industry.
Tailored workshops bring your management team together using a shared framework. This unlocks fresh thinking, re-energises your managers and gets everyone speaking the same language. Tailored workshops are suitable for six to 60 people. They can include representatives from any level of your organisation.
Our workshops are suitable for business, government and not-for-profit organisations.
Our tailored workshops offer:
- Consistent framework. A streamlined and tested system for strategic planning and performance measurement.
- Shared language. Everyone on your team on the same page using the same system.
- Manuals and templates. Takeaway course material customised to your organisation’s needs.
- Flexible delivery. We work to your schedule with full-day or half-day workshops – in a block or over a few weeks.
- Improved performance. Refresh and refocus your organisation away from busywork activities and onto real performance outcomes.
Tailored Workshop Content
Course content is generally based on our Agile Strategic Planning or Focused Key Performance Indicators course curriculum. But all examples and exercises are tailored to your industry. Discussions, brainstorming and work-shopping focus on real issues for your organisation.
Subject matter that is not relevant to your organisation, or not a priority, is removed. The time is then refocused on areas of key relevance.
The Agile Strategic Planning and Focused Key Performance Indicators topics are each one-day programs but they can be combined as a two-day program.
Bespoke Workshop Content
We can also work with you to develop a specially designed workshop to increase your team’s skills in a particular area – such as Strategic Thinking or Strategy Design.
To help zero in on your needs, we’ve developed a unique, online questionnaire for managers to assess their strategic thinking ability and identify organisational constraints. The results are used to sharpen a workshop agenda around your managers’ requirements. The average scores are also fed back to your management team for discussion.

Case Study: A Better System
An insurance business wanted to improve the strategic thinking and strategic planning skills of its executive team.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) attended Graham Kenny’s public courses on Agile Strategic Planning and Focused Key Performance Indicators. Impressed with the method, the COO asked Graham to develop the Agile Strategic Planning course as an in-house workshop.
The first step was to customise the course to dovetail with the needs of the company. Graham needed to gain an understanding the company’s position in the insurance industry and define the company’s desired workshop outcomes. There were three:
- Change thinking in the senior executive team to become more strategic.
- Open new ways for senior managers to solve strategy problems.
- Outline a better system to design strategy and develop a strategic plan.
The second step was to run a day-long workshop which included the CEO, COO and another nine senior executives. The group was provided with manuals, handouts, an example strategic plan, case studies and a PowerPoint presentation.
In step three, Graham checked in with the company to follow up. He wanted to assess that workshop outcomes were met or if any questions remained. He also checked if the COO needed assistance in incorporating the workshop takeaways into the company’s strategic planning system.
