Strategic Review

“One cannot manage change. One can only be ahead of it....In a period of upheavals, such as the one we are living in, change is the norm. To be sure, it is painful and risky, and above all it requires a great deal of very hard work. But unless it is seen as the task of the organization to lead change, the organization...will not survive.”

- Peter Drucker, Management Challenges for the 21st Century

Engagements cannot help but address the questions that are asked, so asking the right questions is of paramount importance.

P&G experienced 17% profit growth in 2008 because A.G. Lafley, P&G’s CEO, instituted tremendous change in the last several years. In The Game Changer Lafley shares the decisions a CEO needs to make:

  1. Which external constituency matters most and which results are most important?
  2. What business are we in and what business are we not in? What are our priorities?
  3. What are realistic growth goals, balancing short-term and long-term goals?
  4. Shaping the values and standards of the organization. Values establish a company’s identity and behavior. Standards are the measuring stick for values.

How our tools and methodology combine to create a Review upon which action can be based.

Our Strategic Review process answers these questions by combining tools from strategic planning, operational auditing & evaluation, organizational development, qualitative inquiry, analytics, and marketing intelligence to inform a comprehensive analysis of how the various parts of the organization collectively create outcomes.

A key part of our process is to define and clarify your overarching standards of success, your business goals, your values, and your organizational culture. The process sets an appropriate stage for success by embedding strategy considerations in an appropriate and real context.

A detailed discussion addressing methodology and how we cooperatively design engagements for prospective clients is availabe upon request. Just go to the Contact Page and let us know that you would like more information.
