Wishing everyone a happy and productive 2014!
Most organizations have engaged in their strategic planning session as early as the 3rd or 4th quarter of last year to ensure a smooth transition of their business initiatives ending in 2013 to the next. One client we know which started early in their planning process is Philippine Global Communications, Inc. (Philcom).
Philippine Global Communications, Inc. (Philcom) is a leading telecom company founded by RCA (Radio Corporation of America) in 1924. Now, more than 80 years later, the Company is still enabling Clients to harness the power and convenience of the internet to manage their businesses and serve their customers.
By September of last year, Philcom’s goals as a company have been defined and the targets have been set for 2014. To succeed in reaching these goals, the Company needed to align the efforts of all its Departments within the entire organization. Enabling them was The Green Box Learning Solutions Team who facilitated a workshop for Philcom’s Top Leaders to transform their strategic goals into concrete business plans that will help them guide, monitor and measure the success of their respective departments’ actions throughout the year.
What is Strategic Planning?
Strategic Planning is the process of clarifying the overall purpose and defining the desired outcomes of an organization. It includes establishing realistic goals and objectives aligned with that purpose and formulating long term strategies for reaching these goals.
Why Strategic Planning?
A company’s resources (money, people, time, materials and equipment, technology, etc.) are limited and the organization itself is composed of units and sub-units whose efforts are specific and specialized. The Strategic Plan ensures that all these efforts are coordinated to achieve the overall objectives given the resources available.
TGBLS guided Philcom’s Top Leaders as they assessed their departments’ internal and external environments and capacities. In teams, guided by their strategic direction for 2014, Philcom Leaders formulated their departmental strategies alongside with identifying areas of support which they will require from other groups. Philcom started right when it decided to engage in a strategic planning workshop with The Green Box Learning Solutions Team. There is no doubt that it’s going to be an all systems go for Philcom this 2014!
