Flawless Execution Starts with a Clear and Flexible Plan...and an interactive Afterburner team building exercise!

Most training companies measure success in class evaluation scores. We measure success when you improve execution. Our business Planning Workshop provides your team with the foundation of Flawless Execution℠.

This is not an academic classroom discussion on business planning. Your team is not going to learn ABOUT planning - your team will actually plan during an Afterburner team building exercise! You'll create a 90-day Execution Plan using the same tools we use as Fighter Pilots, but that's only the beginning. When you leave our workshop, you know who is going to do what and by when. But you're not finished, and neither are we.

Drive Execution with 30-60-90 Debriefing.

We are going to schedule Debriefs every 30 days with you and your team to make sure the plan is getting executed properly. We can do this via conference call, in person, or a combination of both. We call this 30-60-90 Debriefing℠. Problems happen. Your people get task-saturated. They run into roadblocks and forget priorities. The Fighter Pilots plan for this, and so will you.

During these Debriefs, an Afterburner Fighter Pilot helps you keep your team "On Mission." We will help you identify what's working and what's not along the way. Your world is always changing, and your plan needs to flex with these changes to stay on track. We'll help you do this by giving you the outside accountability and close leadership support you need to lead execution. When the plan is complete, we will hold a comprehensive nameless, rankless Debrief and put the Lessons Learned right into your next planning cycle.

Get a Return on Your Business Planning Workshop Investment Immediately.

When you walk away from an Afterburner Planning Workshop, your team will have a lot more than a plan. Your people will have gained a deeper understanding of the Flawless Execution Model℠ throughout our interactive team building exercise. They will know how to use the Six Steps to Mission Planning to create strong plans quickly and painlessly. And they will have thought through contingencies to make sure their plan stays on track. Upon completion of an Afterburner business planning workshop, you will see your execution improve right away along with your bottom line.
