Strategy Formulation​

Does your organisation have a clear idea of what you want to achieve?

Taking the time to develop strategy is not only necessary, but critical, to the long-term success and health of your organisation.

Unfortunately, many leaders and team members experience strategic planning as a painful, unproductive and often irrelevant activity. Far too often the final plan is filed… never to be implemented or much less reviewed.

How We Help

Creating a ‘stakeholder owned’ strategy and implementing it is hard work that is often confusing. Let us demystify the process while we upskill you and your team, in order to embed the process to the point that it is self-sustaining.

We will assist you to think and behave strategically to build a “strategic to operational plan”, which provides you with a clear road map to implement your strategy successfully and painlessly, with established credibility, ownership and buy-in throughout your organisation, thus making implementation more effective.

Through our support we will ensure you avoid the common pitfalls that lead to plans that are, at best, confusing and ineffective, but at worse, erode morale, sap motivation and consume valuable resources.

Creating and implementing an effective strategic plan that is valuable and essential to long term success is possible – when you have the right guidance and the right process, to go from strategic thinking, to creating a plan on paper, to driving the actions which implement that plan.

We will also work with your team to ensure a strategic governance process is developed specifically for your organisation to ensure the “strategic to operation plan” remains a living document that your team regularly monitors, adjusts, and uses for effective decision making throughout the organisation.
