Strategic Planning as an HR Professional

Strategic Planning

What is your role in the Strategic Planning Process within your organization? If an internal department calls on you to assist them with their strategic planning, how would you respond? We are often called upon to help facilitate this process but yet may lack the understanding, experience or tools that can help us execute in a way that our internal clients value. When we reflect on our role in the strategic planning process, what have we contributed and what role do we play? Do we just give the facilitator and leadership team the data for their SWOT? Are we the “front of the room” facilitator? Are we at the table working elbow to elbow with the C Suite? There are many ways in which we can contribute – but the key is – we must be part of this process. Without some input or guidance from HR, plans created will die in a desk. In this session, we will define and describe organizational strategy and recognize its major components.
