Scope Of Practice - High Spot Review

Ratings: (0)|Views: 707|Likes:
Published by Nigel A.L. Brooks
A Hi-Spot review is a "mini strategic planning" project, initiated on an unplanned basis, to determine a response to unanticipated events, ideas, or activities that impact strategy. The name means "high-level and focused" - derived from the phase "high level strategic plan for opportunities and threats." The review is intended to be both diagnostic and prescriptive. The review consists of a quick situation assessment and a project definition that sets direction. The result determines the solution to a specific opportunity or threat that can be enacted immediately through one or more implementation projects.

THE HI-SPOT REVIEW FOR QUICK SITUATION ASSESSMENTS AND DIRECTION SETTING
 A Hi-Spot review is a "mini strategic planning" project, initiated on anunplanned basis, to determine a response to unanticipated events, ideas,or activities that impact strategy. The name means "high-level and  focused" - derived from the phase "high level strategic plan for opportunities and threats." The review is intended to be both diagnosticand prescriptive. The review consists of a quick situation assessment and a project definition that sets direction. The result determines the solutionto a specific opportunity or threat that can be enacted immediatelythrough one or more implementation projects.
An enterprise can initiate a Hi-Spot review project in response to events,ideas, and activities when immediate action is necessary. A Hi-Spot reviewis a mini strategic plan for opportunities and threats, and may result in newinitiatives or enhancements and modifications to existing plans. It isconducted within the context of a current strategic plan. Hence,assumptions for values, guiding principles, mission, vision, and other strategic statements are upheld, unless there is a good reason for change.
 Events, ideas, and activities...
In the ideal world, there would be ample time to develop well craftedstrategic plans that address both long-term aspirations and short-termvision offensively. In the real world, pressures from unanticipated eventsand changes in competitive, economic, environmental, political,regulatory, social, and technological trends can have an adverse impact onstrategy. As a consequence, prompt defensive repositioning, restructuring,or reengineering activities may be necessary to respond to current threats,and to enable future offensive opportunities. Workouts, turnarounds, and profit improvement programs may be necessary to provide more generallonger-term solutions.3
