Strategizing

Summary

Finding the right path forward to help improve profitability for your company can be difficult. Bringing new services or products to market can be challenging. Having the right strategies in place can help you achieve maximum value for your organization.

I take a collaborative approach with you and your team in three different forms. First, I offer full-day sessions that are typically 1-2 day for strategic planning at the management level or with departmental leadership. Second, I offer project basic strategic planning that requires a longer timeline for research. Finally, I can tailor the service with a combination of the two based on your needs.

What to expect 

  • A free initial assessment by meeting with you and your team.

  • An agreed upon tailored strategic planning service with estimated cost

Strategizing

Full Day Session

Full day session are generally reserved for times when you and your team need to step away from the day-to-day work to focus on developmental topics. These topics are unique and deserving of focus. It can be beneficial to use an outside consultant so that leaders and managers can participate as a member. Facilitating can be left up to a trusted consultant.

I use a design thinking approach, so sessions are very collaborative. They are participatory and engaging. I look for thematic patterns and help guide the conversation, contextualizing ideas, and challenging you to think differently.

Topics that might be discussed

  • Creating company clarity through communicable statements of purpose and strategic anchors

  • Identifying potential market forces to forge a competitive advantage

  • Develop a concept for viable products or services

  • Improve team cohesiveness
