1. Best Practice Report: Strategy: Strategic Planning Process

    February 9, 2020 by BPIR.com Limited

    Strategic planning is a systemic process through which an organisation assesses where it is at the present time, communicates where it wants to be in the future (through its mission and vision), and makes the necessary decisions to reach its goals. The process includes making sure that monitoring, control and improvement mechanisms are in place, which help to ensure the smooth implementation of the plan and mitigate any interruptions.

  3. Best Practice Report: Leadership: Engagement and Communication with Stakeholders

    November 11, 2019 by BPIR.com Limited

    A stakeholder is an individual or a group that holds a stake or, in other words, an interest in an organisation’s activities. Stakeholders can come from almost every area in which an organisation exists and operates: they can, for example, be employees, suppliers or customers; consumers, unions or legislators; banks, competitors or shareholders. Engaging and communicating with stakeholders is a fundamental ‘must’ for every organisation. Engagement goes beyond a simple exchange of information. Engagement involves listening, learning and collaborating with those who have a legitimate interest in an organisation’s activities, products and services. It is the process through which leaders (from CEOs to managers to team leaders) involve those people who may be affected by the decisions an organisation makes or might influence the implementation of the decisions. Stakeholder communication refers to all forms of communication-formal and informal-that leaders convey to the organisation’s stakeholders. Organisational communication can be considered a subset of the deeper role of stakeholder engagement, in which leaders play a critical role.

    • A workforce culture that delivers a consistently positive customer experience and fosters customer engagement.
    • An environment to enable innovation and intelligent risk taking, the achievement of your strategic objectives, and organisational agility.
