This journey starts with scouting the big picture and exploring what is evolving. It proceeds with a co-creative journey to renew purpose, vision, strategy, positioning, value propositions, and business models to build Better Business and a better future.
GOING BEYOND BUSINESS AS USUAL
FACILITATING CO-CREATION OF STRATEGY, INNOVATION AND TRANSFORMATION
Building a Better Business and a Better Future takes strategic insight, and a purpose-led, holistic, adaptive and inclusive approach to strategy and business transformation. Outside-in. Future-back. Inside-out.
PS. Facilitation is the art of moving a group of people through meetings, planning sessions, and/or training, and successfully achieving a specific goal.
FACILITATING PURPOSE-LED BETTER BUSINESS STRATEGY
We partnered with this company's CEO, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer and their Chief People & Culture Officer to lead and facilitate the development of a new position and direction in building a Better Business. This consisted of a higher purpose, a 2030 vision, and a strategy for the next strategic period - all driven by insight and foresight. The process was facilitated online over a 6 month period, involving the enlarged management team, key stakeholders, as well as the Board of Directors. All supported by executive coaching for Vertical Leadership Development.
EXPLORING THE BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM
We helped this corporate executive management team in the Foodservice industry to understand the future of sustainability within their business ecosystem. We explored overall trends outside and inside the eco-system; conducted interviews with relevant stakeholders; identified relevant innovations and new entrants in the area; and teamed up with a legal partner to explore the legal and regulatory trends impacting their markets.
EXPLORING FUTURE OPTIONS
We helped this company's CEO and Chairman of the Board in the Transportation sector to explore their business environment, explore future options, and co-create their vision and strategy together with key stakeholders across the organization, including the Board of Directors. A crucial step in this company's transformational journey.
EXPLORING THE CONSEQUENCES OF STRATEGIC CHOICE
We helped the Executive Vice President of Corporate Development in this company to strategically explore and identify how to adapt the overall company offering and portfolio to stay relevant and attractive to their customers and eco-system in a world with increasing focus on sustainability. We then helped explore and understand the implications of their potential strategic choices on their current business model and operating model.
INCLUSIVE STRATEGY CO-CREATION WITH 75 LEADERS
We helped this Division Head co-create the division strategy together with his leadership team. The process ultimately involved all 75 managers of the division in the process of developing actions in a two day live "mega"-workshop. All in order to create widespread involvement and ownership of the final strategy across the whole organization.
CO-CREATING AN INTEGRATED SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY
We helped a Director of Sustainability in the Food industry to explore the very frontiers and trends of sustainability; what can be considered world-class inside and outside of their industry context; and how to develop a world-class sustainability agenda aiming at creating real system change - and changing the world for the better. All clearly integrated with the company's overall purpose, values and strategy.
KICKING OFF THE STRATEGY PROJECT
We helped this Managing Director in the Med Tech sector to kick off his strategy project with an online management team co-creation workshop aiming at exploring the future of their eco-system. With a trend report as our base, we set up a co-creative one-day scenarios workshop and helped guide, facilitate and challenge the management team throughout the journey to help them see new angles and perspectives.
FACILITATING A FULLY VIRTUAL STRATEGY PROCESS
Early on in the COVID-19, we helped this Division Head in the Automotive sector to plan and facilitate an online strategy process together with his management team and key stakeholders from across the organization and geographically spread. Something we have then repeated with other client management teams.
The process was built on a number of critical co-creation workshops online, with break out sessions and homework for all participants in between the workshops. The process resulted in a strategic plan and an important alignment regarding key focus areas and priorities across the team.
AGILE TRANSFORMATION FOR HUMAN GROWTH
We helped the Chief Transformation & People Officer in an exponentially growing organization to explore and develop principles enabling growth and dynamic capabilities. All aiming at transforming the whole organization into a more agile operating model, and a platform for human growth. These principles became important input to the People & Culture strategy, as well as to the company's ongoing growth and transformation journey.
