ABSTRACT
The article explores the ways on how to set a well-consolidated organizational strategy. Technically, strategy is defined as a statement of direction that will lead to a meaningful change to be accomplished over a relatively lengthy time frame. In setting strategies, planning sessions are necessary, where ideas and opinions from participants converged. After knowing the voice of the majority, a second session should be done to validate the strategies being formulated in the first session.
