The one page plan encouraged my executive team to have all the right conversations.  It puts the most important questions on the table and literally gets everyone on the same page.

The OGSP process and the discipline of the single page planning has been in place at New Balance for three years now.  It has served us well and become part of our language.  The entire process has led us back to healthy sustainable growth and I would not run the company or any division without it.

We have used OGSP for the past three years and it was an important contributor to our planning and ultimately record results.  It's simple to use and easy to implement across the organization.

ERH has used the OGSP planning process for six to ten years and has found it to be tremendously beneficial in keeping management and the Board focused on the right issues in the right priority. This process and its resources have clearly produced improved strategic outcomes.

Prosperity in today’s business environment is dependent on agility and requires relentless focus, structure, and discipline-not just for Executive Teams but for entire organizations.  OGSP serves as our guiding beacon and allows us the framework to more decisively and rapidly marshal and deploy resources.

OGSP is really helping us stay on track, and also keeping me focused on not pursuing things that shouldn't be pursued.

Like any business, we need to focus on putting first things first if we are going to succeed.  Harry has helped us immeasurably in this process through a very dynamic and measurable strategic planning process. 

Our one page “dashboard” is of particular value in communicating our progress with everyone from employees and volunteers, to our supporters and Board of Trustees.

To put it simply, the board loved it! Said it was the best thing they had seen that described the Collaborative and what we do and what we hope to do in the future. They didn't suggest a single change.

Lynn Olman
Past Executive Director
Health Improvement Collaborative
Cincinnati, OH

  

We learned to focus on what matters most and to develop workable strategies and plans to achieve our goals. We have continued the process on our own with great success.

It works!
