Strategic Visioning

Strategic Visioning is the name of The Grove Visual Planning System (VPS) that focuses on strategic planning. It uses large visual templates, called Graphic Guides®, to create wall-sized, panoramic representations of an organization’s environment, current situation, vision of a desired future state and all the action plans and roadmaps needed to implement the strategic vision. These are combined with best strategy and facilitation practices to provide a productive process that involves all critical stakeholders.

This VPS is used when a team, division, or entire organization requires a new sense of direction, or needs to reach alignment on critical priorities during challenging times.
