CEE Strategic Planning for Execution: Assessment and Risk (SPEAR)

Date: August 27, 2018 to August 30, 2018
Location: Naval Postgraduate School

The Strategic Planning for Execution: Assessment and Risk (SPEAR) Workshop provides a guided process to support Commanders and their executive teams to develop mission-critical strategic plans, execute those plans effectively, maximize Navy resources, and accurately assess the impact of their plans.

Questions To Be Addressed During The Workshop
    •    Have you clearly defined your mission, and is it understood throughout the command?
    •    How will emerging internal and external changes impact your strategic plans?
    •    What are the most important objectives for your command to achieve?
    •    What distinctive capabilities position your command for sustained high performance?
    •    How do you assess your objectives and select metrics that assure intended results?
    •    What risks are associated with your plans, and how do you mitigate risk?
    •    Are you maximizing your organizational leadership capabilities to gain support and resources for your strategic initiative?

Who Should Attend?

We recommend sending teams of at least 3-5, led by a Flag Officer, SES, or O-6. The SPEAR goal is for each team to strengthen their organization's strategic planning process with attention to desired outcomes, metric selection and risk management. The workshop is effectively a structured and facilitated off-site for senior leadership and staff to focus on advancing their command's effectiveness to accomplish key strategic goals. Each participating team can take away from the SPEAR workshop an improved strategic plan and assessment with clear, measurable objectives that enable all levels of the command to align their decisions and actions to achieve organizational success.

The Location

The SPEAR is conducted in the spaces of the Center for Executive Education on the campus of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California or in designated Fleet concentration locations, as designated in our main webpage. If at NPS, lodging is available on-base at the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites in historic Herrmann Hall.
