In the midst of the COVID pandemic and all of its impact on the senior living industry, workforce, and finances, you may need to take your strategic planning in a new direction. But don’t panic; a few steps can make this easier:
- Identify a cross-functional team. Bring together 3-6 key team leaders from different areas so that you can both harness their expertise and get different viewpoints.
- Take the pulse of the current state. Analyze key performance metrics (where you are succeeding and failing), identify industry trends and challenges, and focus on pain points within your organization.
- Co-create a vision and plan for a change. Identify common goals, collective incentives, and clear roles and responsibilities. While your plan must include details and specifics, this whole process needs to be done swiftly. Summarize key steps, create an impactful map, and plan to mobilize your teams to make the shift.
