Collaborative Planning Solutions and Services
All Afterburner workshops act as a diverse business collaboration solution, using facilitation techniques to improve the thoroughness of the planning process, build consensus, defeat group think, spur innovation, and maintain your competitive advantage.
- Strategic Planning (OrgEx) - Define your organization's vision of the future, but in a clear, compelling, high-resolution manner with 12 key descriptions we call a Future Picture. Our organizational management consulting team will then guide you through systems mapping and network analysis to identify powerful leverage or focus points that will become the strategic plan necessary to achieve your Future Picture.
- Project / Operational Planning - Whether you have developed a strategy through our facilitated workshop or you just have a major project that requires a collaborative planning effort to develop a detailed and innovative collaboration solution, we can help. Learn to use the 'Six Steps to Mission Planning' on a real corporate mission, not a simulation. Our organizational management planning workshop will let your team see immediate results and have a repeatable process they can use to improve future project planning and execution.
- Red Teaming - Improve the quality and effectiveness of your plans through 'Red Teaming.' Learn how to incorporate Red Teams into your planning processes.
Business Execution Services and Solutions
- Execution Rhythm Facilitation - Execution is a challenge for most organizations. Through organizational management consulting, we will coach you and your teams on how to close the execution gap through the proper use and facilitation of 'Gap Meetings.' Gap Meetings are an excellent business collaboration solution, as they are short, focused, regularly scheduled meetings that improve project management and execution-related organizational accountability, a critical asset to high performing organizations. These meetings, used along with the Flawless Execution℠ process model, will drive individual accountability around your business initiatives.
- Standards Development - The foundation of executing as a team lies in well-written and well-communicated standards. Standards provide a common set of principles and expectations that keep the organization on track and provide guidance when a plan breaks down. They are the ultimate contingency plan. Afterburner will work closely with your organization to develop these written standards.
Debriefing Services and Solutions
- Debriefing Facilitation - Debriefing is a critical collaboration solution, as learning from mistakes as well as your successes is essential in the current fast-paced, demanding, and often threatening environment. Organizations that fail to learn will ultimately fail. Let Afterburner's organizational management consulting professionals help you debrief a recent project or plan in order to perform root cause analysis, develop Lessons Learned and begin to develop a culture of learning in your organization.
- Debriefing Workshop - Afterburner teaches the fundamentals of our proprietary Stealth Debriefing Process℠. Your team will learn to utilize the fundamentals of this powerful business practice.
