Strategy Facilitation

In these volatile times and ever-changing market environments, strategic vision and clear game plan is more important than ever. We work with business leaders and key stakeholders to facilitate and map out a forward-looking strategic plan that will enable them to gain sustainable competitive advantage.

The most powerful strategies arise from game-changing insights – of customers, markets, competitors, regulators, and industries. It creates advantages by anticipating the actions and reactions of others, by exploiting the leverage inherent in concentrating effort on a pivotal or decisive aspect of the situation, and by creating policies and actions that are coherent, each building on the other rather than cancelling one another out.

Strategic planning is intended to set an organization on a path toward a certain and quantifiable financial results. Traditional Financial Planning often focuses on the numbers as the Plan rather than the numbers being  an expression of the plan. Our strategic planning approach focuses on how the organization is going to make those results happen.

We are results focused. Financial and non-financial results.

Many organizations find our targeted strategic planning designed to focus on a specific area (e.g. branding, sales, marketing, CSI, competition, new markets etc.)  of opportunity invaluable. Targeted strategic planning helps develop consensus, commitment, and strategy to  pursue that opportunity. Examples include: “Should we branch or close branch?” “should we launch a new product line or not?” “How do we adapt to a Covid19 Market Environment?”

The strategies we develop for our clients are all about how to move them forward.

Judging what strategy to pursue for your organisation will be grounded in a probing assessment of your organisation’s external and internal situation. Based on this probing assessment we’ll develop a competitive strategy for your organisation which will result in you being different – it means we’ll deliberately choose a different set of activities to deliver a unique mix of value to your clients.

Once the competitive strategy has been developed, we’ll ensure that your strategy can be implemented by defining the desired objectives and measures that will drive the required behaviours. We’ll therefore ensure that the developed strategy will create a line of sight between the organisational strategy and the individual performance measures
