Strategic Planning

What: One-half to 2 days
Who: Up to 24 participants (key stakeholders plus option to include consumers, knowledge experts, and “trained brains” to accelerate insights)

Summary

We transform traditional strategic planning with a focus on innovation: bringing the best offerings to market solving the most critical customer problems. We energize creative thinking to ensure innovative approaches are generated. This work will differentiate your company, inspire employees, and position you for real growth.

Applying both imagination and content expertise, you’ll solve the organization’s challenges. The results are the essential components of an effective plan: a purpose, desired future state, values, and the strategies and tactics necessary for success.

And — most importantly — your teams will gain the skills and flexible thinking to recognize and embrace other opportunities that appear. While not in the plan, these will create new opportunities for unexpected growth and allow you to agilely move as a startup would.

Industries and Clients

We’ve worked with many leading businesses to generate innovative product and service concepts in a variety of industries and categories, including consumer products (e.g. food, beverage, products), pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, financial services, fast–food, software, digital services, government agencies, energy, agri–business, human services, and industrial machinery.

Key Benefits

We go beyond traditional facilitator–led brainstorming sessions. The infusion of creative talent and outside perspective pumps new life into your strategy sessions. Some of the benefits include:

  • Results-driven strategies – clarified challenges lead to more creative solutions to generate competitive advantages and growth
