Part 2 of 3: The Five-Year Look
Thursday, October 14, 2021 (8:00 AM - 9:00 AM) (CDT)
The C-Suite question: How many managers will we need in five years?
Fewer than 10% of organizations have a strategic plan they actually follow. How then can they make a long-term forecast of their need for managers?
The Five-Year Look is 1-page tool for giving the development plan shape and focus. You don't need a confusion session about "vision."
This is #2 in our 3-part series: "3 Manager Development Tools the C-Suite Respects. Each session answers a question the CEO will ask:
- What manager development programs guarantee a return?
- How many managers will we need in five years?
- How can we manage a talent pipeline when everything changes all the time?
Each of these 3 segments has these elements:
- Introduce the small cohort
- Define terms and learn the framework
- Play with the tool
- Discuss three tough questions
- Brainstorm the C-Suite presentations
Objective: This tool lets you short-circuit the circular conversations about growth and changing needs. It becomes the inspiring "Why" of your plan.
Light prep: Review current strategic plan for the big long-term changes. Revisit staffing projections, if any.
