Strategic management retreats offer effective off-site business review, planning, and problem-solving sessions away from daily work distractions. Retreats provide a more relaxed and innovative thinking environment for better collaboration, brain storming, and decision-making.

Proten International’s strategic retreats are a unique mix of facilitation, consulting and Executive Action learning sessions. The sessions are facilitated by our team of experts who will bring together the management team, ask questions to stimulate and validate their planning and provide new insights.

As an outside advisor, the strategic retreat facilitator provides objective validation of assumptions, thinking processes and solutions. The facilitator is a skilled management consultant with strong understanding of business management, leadership styles and team dynamics.

Strategic management retreats help CEOs and organization leaders to address executive questions and challenges. Examples include:

  • Coming up with a new vision/strategy that is fit for your organization/market and how to implement it on the ground level.
  • Creating a new organizational direction/structure/culture and requiring expert support to launch the organization-wide initiative, help accelerate its development and overcome the resistance to change
  • Coming up with strategies for organisational growth acceleration.
  • Overcoming communication and collaboration barriers and developing better alignment and cross-organizational teamwork.
  • Coaching and developing top talent and new managers on executive and leadership skills to develop them to the next level.
  • The need for an independent expert to support the development and execution of an effective transition of a merger or acquisition project.
  • Strategic planning to keep up with and adapt to the changing market, technology and organizations.
  • The need to validate assumptions and decision making process for a major investment decision.
  • The need to achieve maximum ROI from our business units; through business model optimization, technology and process innovations or reengineering without paying a lot of money for a team of external consultants.
