"However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results."
— Sir Winston Churchill
How we work
At its heart Business strategy is about defining a plan of action for achieving organisational outcomes, and this is exactly what we help clients do – define clear objectives and take steps to achieve them. We start by clarifying the values, mission and vision of the company, and in turn their strategic drivers. Once these are clear we can determine the gap between the present state and the desired future state as a basis for defining a clear strategy to get from Point A to Point B. We also consider the behaviours required to achieve the targeted outcomes, and how the culture might need to change in order to support them.
For an organisation to operate coherently every decision must align back to it’s values. This pertains to everything from its people, processes, technology and structure to its mission and vision. If decisions are in conflict with the company’s core values it will begin to erode the culture and functions of the business and in turn affect behaviours and outcomes. The model above highlights how these elements come together. At each stage of defining a business strategy we connect back to each level – from top to bottom, and bottom to top – ensuring a coherent plan.
