Management Retreat

Management retreats are supposed to an opportunity for the executive team to align their ideas and tactics to the overall strategy of the business. Unfortunately, retreats often polarize the executive team by de-generating into budget debates and negotiations.

Priiva’s strategy retreat format aligns the executive team because the technique is “forward opaque and backward transparent”. That is, an executive team will de-generate into budget debates because the stakeholders anticipate the programs and change that will be inflicted on each organization, and that change may be threatening.

Priiva’s workshop de-personalizes the debate by focusing on each player’s behaviour and strategy – not whose budget needs to be cut or changed. Once the executive team participates in building the logic of each player’s behaviour, team members are far more likely to get behind a strategy that optimizes their outcome and will confidently execute on the required strategic actions.
