Making Deliverology and Strategic Planning Deliver: A Lean Government Approach


Concerned that Deliverology will lead to increased pressure, overwhelm and disengaged people?   Frustrated by strategic plans that aren’t valued by the organization and that are seen as “extra” work? Suffering from “initiative overload?”

A must-attend for anyone involved in the changing landscape of Strategic Planning and Deliverology. This one-day workshop demonstrates how Lean thinking can overcome the risks and potential damage of both Deliverology and traditional Strategic Planning:

  •     Low buy-in from the plan’s implementers = resistance and disengaged people,
  •     Unrealistic assessment of the human capacity required to deliver the plan = overwhelmed people
  •     Too many priorities = overwhelm, lack of focus and execution
  •     Managing to meet the measure, not the intent behind the measure = unintended consequences and gaming the system
  •     Changing the target, but not the business process to achieve it = targets are met only through expediting and working harder.

The workshop places particular focus on how to use Lean strategy deployment principles and tools to make your organization’s Deliverology program or strategic plan deliver, while energizing your people. Recommended for executives and staff involved in the development of strategic plans or their organization’s Deliverology program.

Price: $795/person + HST
