2020 Strategic Planning

    I hope that you all are doing well! I was curious to know if any of you are doing a Strategic Plan Meeting and if it is being done virtually? What ideas are there that many of you may have to still have it formal as if they were in person? Usually, they have the meeting at a nice hotel with continental breakfast, snacks for a morning and afternoon break, then lunch.
    Thank you,

    Good Morning Angel,
    We have never had a formal meeting such as yours. I will say all of our meetings, including strategic planning, are occurring virtually.

    Hi Angel - Our meeting was similar to what you've described in the past and is moving to virtual this year. We are still having the same facilitators and allotting the same amount of time. While virtual takes away the networking component we did try to still give some of the same experience by providing a meeting care package ahead of time. It has some cu swag, individually wrapped snacks, gift card for lunch, new tumbler, pens, pads of paper etc. a meeting agenda and the board also got a small gift. Obviously not the exact same but something to try to give board and executive team a "feel good". Hope this helps - have a wonderful day!

    We are having annual strategic Planning meeting as planned in Nov.  IT will be held at a large event planning facility and we can spread out more than usual.  We did not want to do virtual.

    We just had ours at a local country club. We had several participants and our Baldrige coach remote, the other 20 of us were in person, with socially distant tables (it was a huge space, 80'x40'). I set each person up with a microphone connected to an audio mixer, and tied that into the zoom meeting and PA system in the room. I then setup Kindle Fire Tablets dialed into the same zoom meeting (and did not join audio to avoid feedback). This ensured that all participants could be heard, seen, and they could see the presentation if they were on the far side of the room. It worked out really well, but was a ton of work to test and setup (I had nearly 1200 feet of power, microphone, and USB cables). You may find it easier to hire a local video production company but it would be expensive.
