Realizing a vision, the desired future state, is not as easy as it may seem. Quite often firms have several strategic options, and it is not always clear which one is more favorable than the others. Yet, trying recklessly may prove fatal. Strategy Works supports organizations to help make decisions on paths they can take. Together with our client, we develop a strategy that identifies important pillars to maintain and/or to enhance. Each pillar is divided in measurable objectives to track progress. A clear strategy also contributes to the expectations of stakeholders and positioning in the outside world.
Strategy only truly works when the necessary competences are apparent and developed at every level of an organization. Too often strategy is considered to be an abstract concept only relevant to the heads of an organization. We do not agree with this position. This line of thinking results in strategy documents which paint incomplete pictures and which lack the general support necessary to successfully implement them. A strategy needs to be both comprehensive and tailor-made for it to be relevant and for it to gain the support necessary to implement it. We involve our clients in the strategy formation process and thus help them develop a strategic mind-set and equip them with strategic frameworks. This ensures our clients have the tools necessary to deal with similar problems in the future.
