Strategic Program Planning Process – SP3

This SPLC members-only coaching engagement consists of 4 virtual meetings, with individualized work assignments between each, to develop and refine the sustainable purchasing program goals and strategies that best meet your organization’s needs.

SP3 provides one-on-one, individualized coaching for you and your team, through these steps:

  1. Inventory & Planning Call 
  2. Vision & Program Charter Workshop 
  3. Goals & Metrics Workshop 
  4. Strategy Cycle Workshop

Your team will leave the SP3 engagement with a deeper understanding of the strategic approach to sustainable purchasing program development, a detailed overall plan, a set of specific goals, and identified focus areas, tactics, and strategies you can leverage for meeting each goal. Contact Johanna Anderson, Member Success Manager, for more information.

Like many organizations, we have lots to do with little staff time and the SP3 process helped our team focus to refine and improve the vision, strategy and goals for sustainable procurement at Metro. Our Member Success Manager led us through each step and gave great guidance to help us prioritize our efforts and make efficient use of our staff time.

“The Vision Workshop provided structure to a brainstorming session with clear asks and to-dos. Our SP3 Coach guided us through the session in a step-wise, strategic manner that helped explain the purpose better and also communicated value. A session such as this has been useful in prioritization for goal setting and we achieved our aim.”
