N2growth Strategic Planning Services
"Values should underpin Vision, which dictates Mission, which determines Strategy, which surfaces Goals that frame Objectives, whcih in turn drives the Tactics that tell an organizaton what Resources, Infrastructure and Processes are needed to support a certainty of execution." ~Mike Myatt (1988)
The N2growth Strategy Practice assists boards and chief executives with the design, planning, execution, and development of strategic initiatives. Put simply, a strategy that isn’t actionable, scalable and sustainable isn’t much of a strategy.
With all of today’s emphasis on pleasing investors by meeting short-term financial expectations, it is not at all uncommon for many executives to press for better execution when what they really need is a better strategy. Conversely, other executives change strategic direction when what they should do is demand better execution. The truth of the matter is a sound strategic plan can be executed with a high probability of success, whereas a flawed strategy is almost impossible to execute profitably.
A good corporate strategy is fluid and evolving. A strategy must be able to anticipate and accommodate change. The harsh truth is many companies have a static strategy, which lacks cultural and organizational alignment. Strategic thinking is a leadership skill which should be deeply ingrained throughout the enterprise - a strategy lack lacks buy-in and alignment is destined to be a failed strategy from the outset. Following are just a few representative examples of areas where we can assist you in your strategic planning:
- Strategy design, review or refresh
- Strategic research and analysis (leadership, market, competition, etc.)
- Strategic implementation support
- Board and C-level facilitation of strategic planning sessions
