WORKSHOPS: GOAL-DRIVEN SESSIONS FOR TEAM ALIGNMENT AND LEARNING
Our team alignment workshops engage a company’s top leadership in robust and thoughtful discussions about how to create, initiate and execute a technology-enabled business transformation. The team learns a common language and framework to define and solve problems, and ultimately develop a game plan. Workshops typically last between one and three days and take place at our Arrowhead Ranch, just north of Dallas, or at a client’s office.
During our workshops, the team learns to bridge the gap between business and IT, work cooperatively to create a game plan, and improve communications across the organization. Clients request workshops to help:
- Eliminate blind spots within or between organizations
- Align a newly formed team on history, current state, and future vision
- Conduct a level-setting session when a new leader is hired
- Plan a new strategy to meet business, technical, and organizational goals
- Solve a particular problem that’s critically important to the team
FOCUS ON GUIDING PRINCIPLES
First, we engage leaders in a thoughtful discussion with our team about technology-enabled business transformation and creating a context for teamwork. We review guiding principles, establish a common language, and familiarize participants with our transformation framework.
UNDERSTAND TRENDS & CHALLENGES
As a second step, we facilitate an in-depth, client-led discussion about the trends and challenges they face within their industry. We work together to articulate strategic objectives, current direction, and existing challenges.
BUILD A GAME PLAN
The final step in a workshop is focused on engaging with the client to build a game plan for moving forward. We detail how to create a change or transformation with The Feld Group Institute Framework.
