Do you have a clear vision of where you want your business to be in 2 to 3 years? Do you have a sound plan for making that happen?
Without a sound strategy, you don’t know what the best opportunities are and how to pursue them. Not every “shiny object” is right for your firm.
The objective of strategic planning is to identify the best path forward for your firm and develop the plan to achieve the goals.
Our focus as strategic planning consultants is to help small and mid-size B2B firms take the initiative and become leaders in their markets.
Strategic Planning Process
Our approach to strategic planning consulting has been proven over the course of working with many B2B firms. Customized to your particular situation, the process covers a wide range of topics, including:
- Goals and objectives
- Mission and vision
- Strengths and weaknesses
- Strategic competencies
- Industry and markets
- Market opportunities
- Important trends
- Supply chain
- Scenario analysis
- Risk mitigation
- Action plan development
As your strategic planning consultants, we work with you on assessing the state of the business, setting goals, identifying the opportunities, evaluating “what-if” scenarios, and creating a strategic plan for implementing the strategy.
Why you need a strategic planning consultant
Without implementing the strategic plan, you’ll never see the results of all the hard work that went into it and the decisions that were made. It’s the implementation that makes the strategy come alive.
We wouldn’t be doing our job as strategic planning consultants if we couldn’t assist you with the implementation of the strategic plan. This keeps us in the loop to find out what’s working and what’s not, and work with you on formulating course corrections.
Don’t Need a Complete Strategic Plan?
Perhaps you don’t need a fully fleshed-out strategic plan but could use some advice on the longer-term direction of your business.
We can support your strategic planning making by providing input in a number of areas important to strategic decision-making.
