People Purpose Planning

People Purpose Planning aims to support arts, cultural and third sector organisations to achieve high performance by focusing on their people, their purpose and the effectiveness of their planning processes.


A vision of something new – something better, something fairer, something beautiful – can be a lifelong pursuit; an organisational mission perhaps five years or a decade.

Shorter-term objectives allow us to rationalise and work towards achieving our mission but, for example, on one to three year planning cycles.

Business plan objectives – if fully developed, integrated and monitored – are the driving force of continuous improvement.

Get the headline objectives right, integrate these into individual and team objectives, and monitor, review and update regularly and you will be well on your way to achieving your aims.

I can support you to identify the right business plan objectives for your organisation, to make them as SMART as possible (Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-bound) and to align them with team and individual objectives through annual appraisal and supervision processes – so that everyone knows what they are doing and why, and collectively, the energy of the people in your organisation is channelled in the same direction, giving you all the greatest chance of success.
