Step 1 - Defining Vision & Strategy
What is the purpose of your organisation? Why does it exist and what outcomes are you trying to achieve?
What is the required sales approach to achieve the desired customer experience and what kind of environment are you trying to create?
A well thought through vision and strategy with clear and measurable outcomes, and which satisfies the needs and desires of customers and stakeholders, is a vital ingredient for successful and sustainable profitable growth in an ever-changing and competitive business environment.
Our Strategic Visioning Workshop is designed for Senior Management Teams. The purpose of the Workshop is to create or clarify:
- your vision (future state).
- why you exist (your purpose).
- what you are trying to achieve (desired outcomes), and
- the appropriate sales / commercial culture to differentiate you from your competitors.
The ultimate aim is to clarify where you are currently (current state) against your vision, and design a logical route map to achieve your desired outcomes.
When the vision and strategy is communicated effectively and understood by everyone within the organisation, and where resources, systems and cultural behaviours are in line with the achievement of the desired outcomes, this helps enable an organisation to grow profitably and remain fit for purpose according to existing, anticipated and changing customer and stakeholder needs and desires.
- To develop a shared vision of your purpose, culture, outcomes expected and customer experience (Change Loop Gap Analysis).
- To identify the size of the gap between your current approach and shared vision, as defined in objective 1.
- To explore the benefits of delivering your vision at three levels:
- To initiate 'Action Plans'.
- To formulate a strategic route map against Change Loop Gap Analysis priorities (defined in Objectives 1 and 2).
The Strategic Visioning Workshop can be used in isolation as a stand-alone workshops or as Step 1 from the Business Development Programme - Six Steps for Sustainable Growth. The Six Steps are intended as a guide. Clients may choose to implement all Six Steps or focus on a number of priority Steps, based on the outcomes of a self-assessment analysis and consultation.
