Strategic Planning

Stay on course, current and competitive

At OIM we understand that the strategic planning process isn’t a once-off event. If you want to remain current and competitive you need continuous review and alignment.

We partner with organisations to help facilitate and establish such a sustainable strategic planning process. The outcome is:

  • A well-planned strategy
    • Informed by sound research and debate.
    • With clearly articulated implementation plans.
  • Internal capability
    • A method for ongoing reviews.
    • A database that guides decision making.
    • Skills transfer to build internal capacity.
  • Execution methodology
    • To ensure everyone in the organisations is engaged and focused on the business performance goals and plays their part in strategy execution.
    • Relevant tools for change communication and strategy implementation, eg business and functional scorecards.


OIM can facilitate:

  • A comprehensive strategic planning intervention spanning about three months.
  • A one- or two-day workshop to re-focus priorities and action plans.
  • Regular strategic reviews and updates.


  • We do not believe in business consultant dependency. Therefore sustainability, inclusivity and building internal capacity for the design, implementation and execution of strategy are key elements in our strategic planning process.
  • An inherent part of this approach is the establishment of a framework for ongoing reviews.
  • We have successfully facilitated strategic planning interventions for a range of clients, many of whom still rely on our expertise to help facilitate workshops or interventions at critical junctures in their business journey.
  • OIM has also been leaders in the field of employee engagement (INVOCOM®) since the early 80s with implementation in a range of industries and countries. INVOCOMS® is a strategy execution methodology we establish at organisations as part of the strategic planning offering.
  • If required, clients also have access to the expertise embedded in all of OIM’s specialist areas, namely organisational performance improvement, operations management and people management.
