This is my first post. If there's a more appropriate forum this post should be in, please let me know and I'll move it.
I've recently started a new job as an executive at a large company. One of the groups I'm taking over was created by a manager on extended leave and I've been charged with transforming and reinvigorating the product management group. Over time, the team has transitioned into somewhat of a project management group and I need some guidance on how to get the team back on track.
In my regular one-on-one's with the team-members, I've determined that one of the major thing's that's missing is that the team has lacked any vision and has no long-term goals its working towards. All the team members' work has been cut out for them over the last few years by their previous manager, and rather than working on projects people are interested in or working toward a long term strategy, the team members have been executing to their former leader's work-list, which lacks any coherent vision or strategy.
Six weeks into the position--as I develop a better understanding of the landscape--I've decided to pull the team together over a couple of days to talk about the team's role, a long-term vision, and an overall group strategy.
I'm interested in hearing from others on if there's a framework or approach you might suggest I use to have my team participate in developing a team vision and long-term strategy.
