Clarify Your Strategy for Unparalleled Success
Large or small, every organization needs a clear strategy every employee understands
What is Strategy?
Your strategy is not a hundred page business plan, or a list of tasks in a spreadsheet.
It's not the byproduct of boring planning sessions where everyone pretends to agree.
And it's not a secret that is privy only to your executive team.
Not even close.
Your strategy is your North Star and your fence line.
It offers aspirational guidance for every team and individual in your organization.
And it provides boundaries for action so that you don't waste time, energy, and money chasing the wrong things.
To put it simply, your strategy creates alignment.
In a world where opportunities are endless but resources are limited, your strategy is a rubric that tells your organization where to focus.
"If you could get all the people in the organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time."
-- Patrick Lencioni
Having a clear, simple strategy isn’t just an advantage—it’s a necessity.
Our Approach to Strategy
Step 1: Understanding Your Business
Your journey begins with us gaining a deep understanding of what makes your business unique. This includes diving into your core values, mission, and vision, as well as understanding your market, competitors, and the challenges you face. While we recognize that a consultant will never know your business as well as you do, having an expert outside perspective can help you find clarity and make difficult decisions about where to focus.
Step 2: Creating Clarity
With a clear understanding of your competitive landscape, it's time to hone your strategy.
Strategy at its best is simply the answer to the following questions:
What is success?
Where to play?
How to win?
What capabilities are needed?
What management systems are required?
Working through these questions together involves identifying and concentrating on the factors that are crucial for your success, ensuring that every component of your strategy is aligned with your ultimate business goals. Strategy development is not top down--we recommend that each business unit and team provides input and has a hand in shaping the final outcome. Their insights will prove invaluable.
Step 3: Sharing With Your Organization
We believe in the power of strategic alignment. Everyone from the CEO to the janitor should know what the org strategy is and how their role (and the innovations they can implement in their role) helps the organization execute the strategy and achieve success.
To accomplish this, we work to create a one-to-two page strategy that is presented to every staff member and updated annually.
