STP creates teams that are motivated, empowered, and accountable to deliver on the goals that created within the seminar. This is achieved through celebrating wins, open communication, and group buy-in on what should be achieved. This attitude is then cascaded down management chains.
The STP process ensures alignment (vs. only agreement) on goals is achieved by team members and key stakeholders through open communication and reviews of previous performance. This ensures teams are motivated and empowered to hit the right targets from the beginning.
The key to success is being able to measure it – the STP session takes high level goals incorporating values and long-term mission and creates highly visible meaningful objectives and supporting projects for each team member that can then be cascaded down the management chain to other teams, creating an organization aligned around common goals.
The objectives and projects established in STP must be emphasized and fostered throughout the year – an internal coordinator is trained to ensure sustainability of the strategic plan including onboarding of new employees, administration and performance surveys.
