A Strategic Plan is a Roadmap – It is a Direction

How often do you plan a road trip without the help of a roadmap? Of course today many of us use an app. Today’s environment of constant change, volatility and competitive pressures. This demands a robust and ever-evolving strategic plan focused on delivering successful outcomes. Most importantly, the plan needs to be flexible. This is essential when situations occur requiring a quick pivot and adapt scenario for unplanned events. A strategic plan considers opportunities, pitfalls, risks, competitors, core services, products, pricing and so on. It can become overwhelming. Our strategic plan uses a simple process. It’s a roadmap of where you are now, where you are going and how you will get there.

Using ‘Now-Where-How’, we help you:

  • Understand what’s working and what’s not in your business NOW
  • Clarify WHERE you want to be in the future
  • Determine the 3-4 key strategies on HOW to get there

We use proven methodologies and a wealth of experience to deliver a one page plan to cut through complexity. You can then focus on implementing key strategies for success. That is, our process ensures you ‘learn through doing’. So, you walk away with a clear plan, having learned powerful tools to drive strategy implementation.

From “The Definitive Drucker”, Elizabeth Haas Edersheim writes in part “As Drucker often pointed out, companies face unparalleled demands. They must craft and communicate a strategy that invigorates their employees … that gives them a shared purpose and direction.  A company that builds on each individual’s potential is far more likely to succeed. Creating tomorrow – by taking advantage of opportunity and human talent and capability … is the challenge of management in the twenty-first century.”

In conclusion, if your planning process is failing to deliver results, engage us to implement a strategic plan to accelerate your growth, profit and leadership goals.
