And once planning is done, the product usually gets put on a shelf, never to be looked at again. The Executive Guide to Facilitating Strategy provides executives and facilitators with a step-by-step resource for guiding their team through all phases of the strategic planning process ¿ from gaining the team¿s buy-in to plan all the way through organization alignment, implementation, and monitoring.
