Product Focus: Visual Strategic Planning

What is Visual Strategic Planning?

One of the tools Strive utilizes is Visual Strategic Planning (VSP). This is a software based tool that combines process focused writing with concepts, data and visuals. Together this allows our clients to have a clear, concise and detailed view of where they are as a company and what is needed to take them where they want to go. It allows for effective communication among managers, leaders and employees. So that everyone within the organization knows what the road map is to lead them to success.

Why Visual Strategic Planning?

  • VSP is intuitive: Most people think and communicate visually on some level.
  • VSP saves time: It provides an effective process for developing strategic plans.
  • VSP is adaptable: So as your business changes so can your strategy.

The Process of Visual Strategic Planning

At Strive we use VSP and a six step process to help clients answer three critical questions about their organization and its future.

  1. What is the mission of their business?
  2. What goals do the need to have and meet to achieve their mission?
  3. What strategies and plan do they need to meet their goals?

At the end clients are focused and ready for success.
