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.
How do we take the first steps towards implementation?
The successful realization of a team strategy requires a convincing, emotional but also coherent story. We work with you to develop the key elements of this story and shape them for the different target groups –in the storytelling form of the hero’s journey, or top-down and fact-based, or with personal anecdotes.
