Strategic Planning typically answers two questions: where are you going and how will you get there.
Where you are going depends on a number options including: What opportunities exist? What threats could impact the business and how? What are my competitors doing? What gives us advantage over them? What resources to we have to invest? and what if things change?
How you get there includes the steps you will take, the resources you will require, the product development, increase of staff and a number of other things that if aren’t observed can sideline your company. Your company infrastructure must be able to support your company’s growth or your company will be out of business.
Our approach to Strategic Planning looks at the business from all sides, from understanding your employees and culture to what is happening in your industry and marketplace. We are looking for opportunities for you, perhaps some you hadn’t even thought of, to help you pursue the goals you have for your company.
External change cannot be helped or controlled. As a business leader, you want to think in terms of changing the right things – the things you have influence over – quickly and consistently, leveraging what you do well, getting rid of the things you don’t in order to maximize company resources to serve more clients or customers. Because these are internal decisions, they are areas that can be rapidly changed in response to changes in the marketplace.
Incorporating design thinking into different areas of the business creates a culture of thinking that starts with an idea or a concept, then elevates and evolves it into something that truly meets the needs and interests of those who it will impact, whether internal or external to the organization.
There is no way around it: Innovation is the difference between success and failure in the marketplace. Doing the same thing every day the same way is the fastest way to making your company obsolete and out of business.
