Annual Planning Support

For many companies, annual planning is little more than a budgeting exercise, with several rounds of budget submissions and requests of further refinement. In a highly stable and static business environment, this approach may be acceptable and do little harm, but for most companies, this simple approach to annual planning can be very risky.

Pawprint is an advocate of a robust, integrated planning approach which starts with an annual refresh of the long term business strategy, moves onto product and operational planning to reflect changes in the business strategy or business environment, then moves into budgeting and, finally, onto performance management.

Pawprint works with company leadership to understand the current annual planning process, works through employee interviews to understand what is working and what is not, and then works with leadership to design an annual planning process that moves rapidly through strategy to planning to budgeting, while respecting the culture and norms of the organization.
