How leading companies adapt to change, make better decisions, and move faster together.
Dynamic Planning is a growth framework for building, executing, and reviewing your strategic plan. Dynamic Planning helps companies make decisions proactively, creating a competitive advantage through their strategic planning process.
Success is measured by the impact employees have on the overall direction of the company, and the insights surfaced to Leadership that help proactively make decisions.
So what actually differentiates Dynamic Planning from traditional planning? What leads to these outcomes? These eight core principles create the behavior change that allows Dynamic Planning to be your competitive advantage:
From how we Build, Execute, and Review our Plan, we want Dynamic Planning to create a complete, consistent planning lifecycle for our company.
We seek to eliminate the disconnect between the priorities set by leadership and the work being done by employees. Further, we want to highlight how the work of employees directly contributes to our direction as a company.
With alignment from the onset, we know where we’re going as a company. And when we do pivot, employees understand why.
We don’t just track activity or make employees feel as though they are punching a timecard for their work. We care about the end result and how we are going to get there together.
We value visibility and transparency. From Leadership to employees to cross-departmental collaboration, Dynamic Planning builds relationships that hold teams accountable and promotes the level of visibility we need.
We proactively identify opportunities for growth and potential risks to drive action. Action taken is more important than just reporting on what has happened.
We embrace change as inevitable, which allows us to build plans that are more durable, reliable, and consistent.
We don’t just “check the box” with strategic planning. Dynamic Planning provides an ever-evolving framework that fuels growth with a foundation we can build upon.
More specifically, Dynamic Planning is measured by:
Set your team up for success
Objectives with relationships
Objectives tied to a theme
Drive outcomes and engagement
Average comments per objective
Key Results per objective
Celebrate your success and improve moving forward
Objectives closed out
Objective success rate
High value success rate
With these principles in mind, Strategy and Operations Leaders have the opportunity to introduce Dynamic Planning as a way to unlock a new way of thinking across the business.
