Focus by means of strategic orientation
Clear content and a mutual plan are the basic requirements for a successful organization. Companies invest considerable resources in systematic strategy development. However, many strategies fail to meet their expectations. This is because real success lies in implementing and anchoring strategy within the organization.
We support you in your strategic orientation in three aspects critical to success.
- Developing a mission statement.
How can we foster deep motivation and establish a common goal?
Efficiency, quality, profit. These goals are a major priority in every successful organization. However, they only provide short to medium-term orientation for business action and fail to answer such basic questions as: What is my overall goal (vision)? Who is my customer, what needs does he/she have and what can the organization offer him/her (mission)? How would the organization like to function (values)?
When we develop models with you, the process of working together is just as important as the final end product. For this, we also keep in mind the right mix of demands at the management level in connection with all those involved and match strategy, mission statement and (desired) corporate culture.
- Strategic Team Alignment.
How do we all play our part?
Successful management teams must share a common vision for strategic direction as well as effective team work. As both a sparring partner and strategy facilitator, we will support you with our comprehensive and proven toolkit for diagnosing team collaboration as well as establishing the alignment of a common strategy.
Every team is a unique mix of individuals, working styles and external conditions which face different strategic challenges. Because of this, we adapt our approach and instruments to your individual needs. After benefiting from our services, you will have both a more focused strategy as well as a stronger team.
- Strategic story.
What is our next step?
Managers have to do a stunt: understanding today's world, while at the same time developing a strategic perspective for the future, communicating it credibly and supporting it with measures. A strategy can only become effective when all aspects have been thought through and meaningfully interlocked.
We accompany and support top teams from the evaluation of the current strategy to the hypothesis-based redefinition of future strategies and the communication of your personal strategic story to the entire organization. In doing so, we do not work on your future direction isolated, but together with the top team and/or other parts of the organization. Thus we together we turn your strategy process into a real strategic dialogue.
