"Strategy is the direction and scope of an organisation over the long term, which achieves advantage in a changing environment through its conﬁguration of resources and competences with the aim of fulﬁlling stakeholder expectations'".
In implementing any new strategy, it’s imperative to define clearly what you are moving from and where you are moving to with respect to your company’s business model, organisation, and capabilities. Develop a detailed view of the shifts required to make the move, and ensure that processes, for which stakeholders must be accountable, are in place to effect the changes.
Many strategies fall short in implementation because of an absence of conviction in the organisation, particularly among the top team, where just one or two non-believers can strangle strategic change at birth. To move ahead with implementation, you need a process that challenges the status quo and allows managers to develop a new set of beliefs in line with the new situation.
The emergence of new trends is the norm. But many strategies place too much weight on the continuation of the status quo because they extrapolate from the past three to five years, a time frame too brief to capture the true market forces.
We analyse from the trends in the strategic environment for your company, to helping you identifying the appropriate competitive strategy, internal capabilities and the way to create your own strategic spaces.
