The Compression Planning® Institute
Oglebay Resort and Conference Center, Wheeling, West Virginia

For people who lead 10 or more planning sessions per year…

“Have you ever heard of ‘Death by Planning Session?’
That’s when committees take 6 weeks to come up with a solution and 18 months later they’re still at it.”

The 7-step visual Compression Planning system helps leaders who feel like they are drowning in an ocean of quicksand due to all the useless, boring and unnecessary planning sessions and meetings they get trapped in.

Levels the playing field for participants

“Compression Planning really levels the playing field, and one of the things people like best about the process is it’s fun!

Read entire testimonial...

Many, many times I hear ‘This is the best planning session I’ve ever been in.’ It spans the gap for everyone.

If you’re no-nonsense, you’ll like it for that reason. If you’re creative, you’ll like it because it allows you to be very creative and open to a lot of different directions.”

Leaders using CP take initiatives from idea to action in a way that builds collaboration and consensus

“Compression Planning has played a role quietly behind the scenes of several initiatives over almost 20 years within Luxottica Retail (we’re better known for our LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sunglass Hut, Sears Optical and Target Optical retail brands).

Read entire testimonial...

We enlisted Jerry and his team years ago to help craft the early LensCrafters brand corporate mission, vision and core values; we’ve since used the process on multiple initiatives, from identifying streamlining opportunities to executing innovative ideas that delivered eyeglasses to more needy recipients during international optical missions.

We’ve found Compression Planning very effective in taking initiatives from idea to action in a way that builds collaboration and consensus.

Luxottica Retail places heavy importance on leadership at all levels. As part of our leadership philosophy, we believe in challenging the process and enabling our associates to act.

In a tough retail business climate, like other organizations we’re faced with doing more, with fewer resources, in the least possible time. Once again, we’ve enlisted McNellis for high-impact workshops to help us equip a targeted pool of associates with Compression Planning skills.

In a recent workshop, about 20 participants worked on real projects with an estimated price tag of almost $50 million. These participants, many with multi-million dollar business responsibilities, have begun to report powerful productivity gains. Some are moving projects forward by two months or more by conducting a single two-hour CP session.

Jerry McNellis and team have truly developed a ‘thinking technology’ that has proven effective for our organization over time, and now, we’re incorporating it more than ever to empower associates, drive personal productivity, provide handrails for delivering results and developing leaders.”

Take everything you know about decision-making, and turn it upside-down.
Planning that previously took weeks, months, or years can be dramatically compressed. CP increases meeting and planning productivity.
