Recently I facilitated an IS strategy workshop. The audience was made up of people at DIRECTOR level - some 20 of them. All were on six figure incomes.
The objective of the workshop was to confirm the business strategy for a Division.
I started the workshop by asking the following question:
* What are the GOALS of your Division (why do you exist?)
* What objectives do you want to achieve in the next 3-5 years - are these measurable
* How will you achieve these objectives (what are your strategies?).
