This approach requires very little time from busy executives – a one hour interview and then attendance at the planning workshop and a ‘road test’ meeting.
Your team will need to compile any existing documentation and data.
If appropriate, some introductions for external consultation with suppliers or customers may be required.
The usual project length is 6 weeks for each plan but the time line depends on availability of your people. The process has been successfully delivered in as little as two weeks.
McKINNA et al has successfully applied this approach across numerous industry sectors almost all of whom say their business is more complex than any other. Because the approach is collaborative, the internal industry knowledge is captured during the consultation and workshop stages.
Family business is a specialty with company principal Catherine Wall having come from a family business background and trained through Family Business Australia.
While the McKINNA et al planning process is consistent, every project approach and planning methodology is slightly different, uniquely tailored to your needs.
