If you don’t plan your own business, the market place will do it for you. Development and implementation of strategy is critical for business survival. The world is moving at a fast pace and we need to be ready to deal with the challenges that it brings. To ensure the strategic plan is implemented we use facilitation techniques, rather than traditional consulting.This ensures that the strategies and plans developed by you are owned by you.
The Harvard Business Review says that ‘strategic planning is still the most demanded management power tool.’ Yet the issue of strategic development and, in particular, implementation is a constant source of frustration for management. Why does this happen... mostly because there is no ownership of the process by the people expected to implement the strategy.
At BreakThroughwe believe that strategic development starts with determining your Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA). Most businesses do not understand their competitive advantage. They rely on product selection to create their advantage. Unfortunately it is rare that product selection is the base for establishing a successful advantage in the market place as competitors often carry similar products.
Your SCA becomes the filter to determine your strategies for Marketing, Operations, Innovation, Human Resources and Finance.
We do not consult with you on developing your strategy. We do facilitate the process with your key people to capture as much of their experience as we can, therebyensuring ownership of the results.
In our opinion, implementation is the most important aspect of strategic development. We work with your people to ensure that what has been planned is achieved.
