Darilyn Evans's insight:

This is an advertisement for a 1 hour training course specifically directed at project managers of ERP projects..  I haven't paid the $19.95 for the course but would be very tempted to do so if I was involved in ERP again.  I liked that the thing they start with and emphasis is BENEFITS realisation.

How to Write a Good Vision Statement

How to Write a Good Vision Statement | benefits realisation | Scoop.it

Strategic planning is much easier than many people realise.  If you have an intimate knowledge of your business and are able to think pragmatically about your strengths and weaknesses, you should be able to create a strategic plan fairly easily.

 

Take a deep-dive into each of the components and giving some tips on how to actually create them effectively.


Via The Learning Factor
Darilyn Evans's insight:

A first step in benefits realisation is being sure of what we are trying to achieve.  This article is useful in giving a step-by-step process for creating a strategic vision that doesn't end up as some generic, jargon-filled statement that is uninspiring to staff and clients alike.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 15, 2015 1:48 AM

Strategic planning is of great importance in the classroom too. Both teachers and students need to plan their work. With the teacher it is about planning for the whole year, and for the student it could be about planning for his or her research paper for the term. In all cases, planning continues to be a factor that can spell success or failure! While, no doubt this article is aimed at the business world, I see its relevance in Education too!

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, January 15, 2015 3:40 PM

Strategic planning must give three products:
1. Address: Define which should be directed towards the organization (Vision, Vision and Values).
2. Focus: In what ways the organization (objectives and goals) will concentrate.
3. Alignment: Align all resources (financial, material and human) of the company.

How Data Will Transform Business

How Data Will Transform Business | benefits realisation | Scoop.it

What does the future of business look like? In an informative talk, Philip Evans gives a quick primer on two long-standing theories in strategy - and explains why he thinks they are essentially invalid.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Darilyn Evans's insight:

Adapt or die is what this talk is about. Former business strategies are rapidly becoming obsolete, the value chain is no longer applicable, vertical integration is moving into horizontal integration.  New models in both public and private sectors need to embrace simultaneous competition and collaboration and different motivations of staff and customers. The concept of scale has changed.
