An organization with a well-thought-out strategic plan is an organization with clear objectives, and a commitment to achieving those objectives. The nature of your company’s objectives and your track record for achieving them is important to your investors, customers and employees. Setting and achieving the right objectives can distinguish your company from its competitors.
We have a four-step approach to strategic planning that will help your organization envision and achieve powerful breakthrough results:
• Review the Current Situation – confirm or develop the mission, and vision; review past results, marketplace, competition
• Envision the Future – choose one or two breakthrough objectives to push beyond what are likely results based on current strategy and business momentum
• Identify Breakthrough Strategies – brainstorm multiple strategies and select the appropriate ones needed to achieve the breakthrough objectives. For each of the breakthrough strategies selected, identify action plans, resources needed, and metrics for measuring success
• Execute the Strategies, Evaluate Results and Plan Next Steps – we stick around for the implementation phase on many engagements
