We work with a wide variety of organizations, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and start-ups. They can be commercial enterprises, government agencies, or associations and non-profits. They can be in nearly any industry. See our client list for a sampling of the organizations we have worked with.
We typically work directly with people who are part of executive teams, business unit management teams, or functional area management teams. They can be C-level executives, VPs, directors, general managers, business unit managers, functional area managers, or mid-level managers.
Our clients are typically very successful at what they do. They are looking for support to envision or plan their business’s future in a better way.
Do any of the following scenarios fit your situation?
You are part of a newly forming or changing team that needs a clear direction or vision. Perhaps your group is struggling with what direction to move in, or what priorities to set. Or maybe it’s unclear how your strategy can fit within the context of the company’s strategy.
You are part of a company or business unit in a complex, changing environment that needs a new, robust strategy. It’s not unusual for new technologies or competitors to dramatically change the environment a business operates in and pose substantial threats. How can you respond with a new creative strategy without taking forever or spending a fortune?
You have tried several strategic planning systems without much success. You’ve tried the standard, traditional strategic planning techniques, or hired the traditional strategy consultants, but you still don’t have the kind of clarity, creativity, collaboration, and buy-in that you want.
Your company has a defined strategy but needs support in executing the strategy. You know where you’re headed, but need help communicating and organizing to get the business aligned around executing the strategy.
You or your company’s leaders need to develop clear, inspiring strategic leadership. Perhaps the leaders in your organization do not consider all perspectives, or collaborate very well, or communicate direction in an inspiring manner.
You are part of a successful business and you want to do better. You realize that although you have made some smart strategic choices, you could be a whole lot better at it. You want to learn new approaches to planning and leading your organization that work better.
