The Strategic Planning
The North American subsidiary of an international financial services corporation had introduced a sophisticated strategic
planning process. The recently hired CIO's challenge was to meet the planning process delivery milestones with the assistance
of a new staff with little, if any, prior strategic planning experience. Following a weekend, first hand assessment
of the JBC team's strategic planning expertise, the CIO selected Jean Bender Consultants to develop the plan.
- JBC Meets the Strategic Planning Challenge
To jump start the planning process, JBC facilitated multiple workshops, soliciting input from all of IT management and
senior technical staff. JBC's approach, from the outset, was to transfer its strategic planning knowledge. The
client's staff were engaged in each and every step of the planning process. The result earned JBC client accolades.
Not only did the strategic plan receive high marks from the client's corporate management but the CIO was left with a staff
well equipped for future strategic planning.
