BDMA WEBINAR 2021: SETTING GOALS AND DELIVERING THEM WITH AGILITY
Introducing our ‘Setting goals and delivering them with agility’ webinar
Creating strategic yet actionable plans is hard enough when you are reasonably confident about the macro environment – the economy, politics, cultural shifts and clear about the micro factors such as customer stability, internal resource etc. Or you simply do what most organisations do – take last year’s plan and budget and add 10%!
How do you create worthwhile plans right now when the only constant is change? Why make a plan at all when it will probably look different next month? How will the removal of the furlough scheme impact you in the short-term, and what do you need to do to assure employee relations remain strong?
In this session, we explored what a good plan looks like and what you need to do to agilely respond to the ever-changing market, while remaining on track. This one hour webinar was chaired by John Thompson, BDMA Chairman and the headline speaker was Cate Russell, Chief Executive at Pilgrims Hospices. Cate and the panel discussed how to set achievable goals and then deliver them with agility.
The webinar took place on Friday 15th January at 1pm on Zoom.
