Strategic Planning and Execution
Too often strategic planning is a result of simply building on what's happened in the past instead of focusing on owned and actionable guidelines. Bureaucracy and politics can cloud the creation of a truly agile environment that will propel growth. The result is a strategy without foundations, that lacks consistency with the values, functions, or culture and that has no way to measure the outcome.
By introducing unbiased third parties who specialize in high impact transformations you can refine your strategic vision, translate that vision into actionable plans and create the conditions for true success. This plan then becomes meaningful to every layer within the organization and execution easily follows.
Insight GP focuses on your organization's capabilities, competencies, and resources in the areas that your markets and customers value most. By concentrating on highly competitive, actionable yet flexible plans we align goals and resources for long term success.
Our process addresses:
- Timelines for each action
- Resources required
- Established metrics for identified goals
- Owners for each goal
- Risk mitigation strategies
- Industry trend analysis
- Evaluation of the culture and core values
This allows us to:
- Set the right strategic priorities and then operationalize your strategy to execute them
- Define repeatable models that allow you to win again and again
- Be dynamic and flexible, with contingency plans for reacting to leading indicators of external changes
We then assist in implementation by guiding the communication of this strategy through the enterprise. We help identify and create action plans for team members at the director role and below who will be tasked with supporting plan goals. This often involves the planning of budgets, technology requirements and the identification of other dependencies.
Linking strategy to action should be an integral part of the planning process. To allow this to happen you need a proven supporting framework that addresses systematic steps to align critical organizational elements with accountable stakeholders. Our consultants have deep experience in making this happen and our clients realize success in this area many times over the rate of average.
