The Strategy Workshop
Our Strategy workshops help you chart out new direction, lead change and facilitate corporate transformation
Today’s rapidly changing global trends are a radical departure from the sedate predictability of the past when a business could plan for ten or more years at a stretch. In these times of rapid technological advances and disruptive innovation, market shifts can eliminate a good business overnight.
Today competitiveness is equated to business survival not necessarily success. High quality equipment or work skills are insufficient to guarantee corporate success.
Organizations need to continuously craft winning strategy to secure market share, stimulate business growth, take advantage of sudden market shifts and position themselves to survive the short term.
Our Business Strategy Workshops facilitate a critical analysis of your current position, a reflective evaluation of options and opportunities open to the business.
The workshop program is designed to challenge and stimulates new ideas and Blue Ocean thinking within your management team to create strategic focus for the business to follow through to achieve short-medium term success.

Why Choose Us
Our facilitators will enable you to see things “outside-in” and think creatively to get you to the future you want.
Business plans are only as good as the strategy with which you implement them.
Company growth is unlikely to be linear. It will be made up of twists and turns along the way. The secret to success is knowing where to take those twists and make those turns.
Most revenue sources are seasonal. Having a good strategy to protect your revenues against the forces of oscillating seasons facilitates short term survival and long-term success.
Why run our Strategic Workshop for your team
Why do we need strategic focus, our strategic plan is working just fine?
Disruptive change agents come in all forms from revised government policy, shifts in consumer demands to releases of new technology. Keeping abreast of how these environmental changes affect your business will keep you trim and focused and help you avoid being ambushed by competitors.
I need to know how this will help us run a better business?
Having everyone on the same page in terms of what is happening around the business gives impetus for internal ownership of business issues in the leadership team. This fosters heightened collaboration in the team to resolve “conflicts” within in order to overcome the “enemy” without.
How do you capitalize on changes in the market that do not favour you?
Taking time to examine the strategic options open to you will allow you to come to terms with the “bottom line” realities of your position and craft a business shift that will safeguard your business against unfavourable change. But it will also give also give you an opportunity to see what new door has been opened by that market change.
Do you mean we should ignore our business plan and focus on strategy?
Think of your business plan as a brilliant road map to your goals if the environment “behaves” and things go the way you would like them to.
In other words, all your machines work perfectly, the market remains predictable and your customers have avowed loyalty to your products. This, of course, is impractical.
A more realistic approach is to think of how you can start with your basic plan and consider how you will maintain a strategic advantage to achieve your goals as the plan period moves on.
