Organizational Applied Strategic Planning (OASP)

Organizational Applied Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is worthless - unless there is first a strategic vision.
- John Naisbitt

Organizational Applied Strategic Planning and Consulting (OASP)

Organizational Applied Strategic Planning is the process by which the leadership of an organization envisions its best possible future and then creates the necessary goals, objectives, and systems to achieve that future. The end result is an action-oriented plan which guides effective, profitable, value enhancing systems and daily actions toward specific goals and objectives supportive of your organization's core values and vision. Our Organizational Applied Strategic Planning process is intended for dental associations, societies, academies, dental schools, group practices, and for-profit companies who desire a plan you will actually act upon.

Some outcomes of ASP can be as follows:

  • To create a clear energizing vision and plan responsive to your organization’s needs, core values, and competencies that promotes continuity of purpose even as leadership changes. (Avoid Zig-Zag.)
  • To raise the value for active involvement among all stakeholders. Special attention will be given to those segments whose participation would enhance your organization's impact and contribute to the attainment of your vision.
  • To create a proactive Fiscal Plan that opens additional avenues of income, allowing your organization to strengthen income streams, control costs, and increase operational reserves. Well-executed ASP typically add at least 25% to the bottom-line EBITDA.
  • To refine the recruitment, development, and alignment of your team and leadership in the context of your vison and Applied Strategic Plan. (Non-profit, volunteer organizations inadvertently become staff driven in lieu of member driven when the member leaders are not enlisted in the creation and execution of an ASP.)
OASP
  • To proactively increase personal fulfillment for your increasingly diverse team.
  • To invigorate and align existing departments and/or committees’ role in support of the Applied Strategic Plan.
  • To create continuity of action over time regardless of changing leadership. (Prevent Zig-Zag.)
  • To elevate effective communication across all levels of the organization.
  • To develop a plan for the continuing innovation to support all of the above.
  • To defeat competition.

What Participants are Saying

Since the New Patient Experience Practicum, I'm amazed at the difference in people's attitudes when I really listen to them. Treatment acceptance has risen dramatically. Although it takes a little more time at the outset, the extra time is worth the lower levels of stress when presenting treatment that I already know the patient wants. I actually look forward to going to work now! I have never in my dental career had anyone say, "I don't care how much this costs, I WANT THIS and I'll find the money for it." I had two patients say that to me in one week after implementing your process. What an amazing result, thank you!

What Participants are Saying

The Applied Strategic Planning process was extremely rewarding to me. The sessions helped me on the journey toward more effective leadership and caused me to realize that more growth is needed. You are to be commended for the excellent way that you worked with us, bringing out our best and correcting us when needed. You role modeled many valuable leadership skills. I learned how to better interact with others and express appreciation more often. I also gained considerable knowledge regarding the full scope of strategic planning, how to listen more effectively, and how to focus planning efforts into a coordinated plan. Your focus upon what is important in relation to God, family and relationships was most appropriate and contributes immeasurably to your success as a person and leader. Thank you again for your wonderful example of leadership. You have much to offer.

I want to sincerely thank you for the extremely positive impact you have had on our dental society. The Dallas County Dental Society has many great leaders and ambitions; however, they cannot be brought to fruition without a plan. Your ability to facilitate our setting and accomplishing of these objectives has been masterful. Any organization without a viable, ongoing strategic plan is like a ship without a rudder. Thank you for enriching our lives both individually and as an organization.

That was one of the best, most complete presentations I've ever heard on how to build an exceptional practice.

What Participants are Saying

Applied Strategic Planning has been the most beneficial investment of time, energy and money we have ever made! Without it, I can't imagine what the future might look like. This powerful process and your leadership brought clarity to who we are, what we want to be and how to go about getting there. It made us create our future on purpose rather than just letting it happen. It focused us on a target and plan. At the same time it brought energy, enthusiasm, commitment and ownership to all participants. The words "Thank You" are not strong enough for all you have done for us!

Bob you have assembled the most extraordinary group of people for the NSC. They genuinely care about one another and are generous in their support and willingness to share.

What Participants are Saying

Since Retreat I, we have had four staff meetings and the word dentistry has yet to be mentioned! Very powerful meetings! Tears, hugs, the whole nine yards. This Wednesday, I hope to progress to writing our personal mission statements. I can tell that when dentistry is approached by the team, it will have a different angle. They have already, almost unconsciously, begun to see answers to questions through the prism of their closely held values. This path is more difficult than I had imagined. And, I'm not referring to how we practice dentistry. I feel like an ancient sailor who has sailed from port not really understanding what will happen, but sure of our direction!

Written the first year after taking the Applied Strategic Planning Series: Bob, the changes here are truly phenomenal! We are now in our beautiful new office, production and collection has risen over 50% and I swear we are not working as hard. I just stopped to listen the other day, and it is simply wonderful to hear and feel this new energy. People should be standing in line for this experience. Thank you my friend!
