strategic planning

Santa Fe Innovates mentor, Ron Dimon, will give an overview of his latest book “Connected Planning: A Playbook for Agile Decision Making” (Wiley, 2021). In this discussion, Ron will show how the act of planning – supported by data, technology & process – helps individuals, teams & ecosystems manage expectations, surface assumptions & constraints about the business, customers, and community to make better decisions. In this session, we will discuss how to get the answers to business questions including:

  • What accomplishments and impact are possible with my business this year? In 5 years?
  • Who is going to deliver what results, by when?
  • Where are we right now, compared to where we said we would be?
  • Why did we get the results & impact we got, and how can we improve?
  • Are we setting ourselves up for long-term performance and scale?

Bring your business challenges, concerns, or questions and join us for a lively discussion on a virtual whiteboard.
