A well thought and formulated strategy is a necessity for any organisation. But the strength of a strategy lies in the purpose behind it and the ability to execute it. Meaningful strategies are designed for execution !
For most companies strategic considerations are not too complex ! Plenty of expertise and experience is available, challenges are known, Solutions are in reach. However it helps to have someone from the outside that hand bring the companies purpose back into the center of Strategy. Because a Strategy consultant can help management with disconnecting from the day to day reality and act as an independent sounding and inspiration board. As an outsider the Consultant is able to refresh the value drivers that might have become dusty, to validate your analysis and to bring some creativity from outside the companies mindset. The latter will be needed to revitalise the path forward and to re-energize the organisation.
Meaningfull strategies are designed for their execution. In terms of business logics, financial feasibility, route-maps and sound bites. Taking a step back, and foreseeing challenges, evaluating alternatives, preparing stakeholder communications, resource & risk assessment is all time well spend!
