Strategic reviews and planning
Many business leaders have had a bad experience with strategic planning for their business. It’s often been a boring process that results in a document that sits on a shelf, or in a drawer, and has little bearing on the real-world activities and decisions undertaken in the business.
In contrast, our approach is based on the Vectis Business Success Ecosystem model that employs an interactive and iterative methodology that encourages whole-of-business thinking covering all aspects of business operations to an appropriate level of detail for your business. We wont waste time exploring things that don’t matter.
In fact the Growth Plan phase is the first stage of the Business Success Ecosystem precisely because it is critical to view all business growth decisions through the correct lens.
Our key difference:
Too often the strategic planning process is a few steps removed from the actual operating reality of business, meaning the end result – the plan – sounds good but doesn’t quite fit well enough to be implemented and sustained.
Our approach is to start with assessing your Growth Plan, during which we look at your growth goals from both a revenue (quantitative) perspective as well as qualitative factors that affect your capability to achieve those goals.
We dig into what needs to happen to achieve key outcomes, not just what the high-level goals are. Whilst still taking a strategic attitude, this deeper assessment included at an early stage provides a more realistic, and more actionable, picture of the overall business strategy.
