Once the strategy map is developed, Our People facilitates the buy-in of the functional heads of the organisation given that these people ‘deliver’ the top management’s vision.
  • Strategy action plans
    • Basis the strategy map developed in the workshop; Our People collaborates with each functional team over a series of sessions to develop their functional strategy.
