An effective strategic plan will shape the direction and future of your business, setting out your short, medium and long terms goals and aspirations for your business. Done well it can give your business a competitive advantage. However, creating a meaningful and sustainable strategy can be a frustrating process for the people involved. This is where we come in. We will help you create a strategic plan by working with the key people in your organisation to identify and agree on the goals for your business and how you are going to achieve them.
The diagram shows a representation of the approach that we use to create and implement business strategy. This is a fluid process that has been developed to manage all of the aspects of strategy development. Here, emphasis is placed on idea generation and structuring in a ‘safe’ environment which encourages participation from everyone involved.
We utilise a number of decision support tools, principally causal mapping, to gather, capture and analyse the strategic information gathered through the Strategy Making process.
Our process can encompass all aspects of strategy making, from initial idea generation through the development of portfolios of strategic options down to the management of individual projects.
Gaining consensus is therefore important both to the strategy development and its subsequent implementation.
