Focus >> Strategy >> Action >> Results
Our four-stepped approach to creating and implementing strategy is designed to support large and small companies make the right commercial judgements.
Focus – on the client’s unique situation, their key challenges, evidence to substantiate underpinning assumptions so clients see things completely and simply.
Strategy – that addresses the obstacles to forward progress, is actionable, underpinned by the right trade-offs and leverages core competencies in defining where the company will compete, how it will compete and how it will organise itself in creating the ‘right to win’.
Action – translating the guiding policy or strategy into a coherent set of principles, priorities and practical actions that support execution without becoming inflexible or wrong-footed by a changing environment.
Results – creating the right performance metrics that provide timely feedback on strategy execution and ensure ownership and accountability.
A good strategy incorporates an evidence-based analysis that explains the nature of the company’s challenge. It provides a guiding policy for dealing with obstacles to forward progress and translates policy into a set of coherent actions that are designed to work together, reinforce each other and make competitive replication difficult. This is how we create strategy that works. Together.
