The foundation of Nolan Consulting Group, Inc. (NCG) is built upon the critical need of having structure and forming a planning process to implement a routine. It’s been proven time and time again that the only way companies succeed is when leaders embrace their discomfort and recognize the power this mindset and action oriented decision making can have. We view this concept from a different perspective – a shift that “Cascades” the plan and vision flowing down through all parts of the organization so that everyone is in tune, aware of the goals and priorities for the coming months.
Our clients who adopt this process have successfully added structure to their weeks, months, quarters and year by understanding the needs of the business and when and where to focus at each point in time. This discipline gives you freedom!
The Cascading Planning Cycle (CPC)™ is a cycle of planning activities that produce guiding documents for vision achievement at all levels in an organization. Every employee has a “line of sight” to the vision. It is a systematic approach that creates organizational alignment, employee engagement and exponentially increases a company’s chances of achieving the vision.
