BETTER BUSINESS STRATEGY AND TRANSFORMATION
We partnered with this company's CEO, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer and their Chief People & Culture Officer to lead and facilitate a journey of Better Business strategy development and transformation. All online over a 12 month period, involving the enlarged management team as well as the Board of Directors. The process was supported by StageSHIFT executive coaching to expand the capacity and impact of the key executives.
EXPLORING THE FUTURE
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.
We helped this corporate executive management team in the Foodservice industry to understand the future of sustainability within their business eco-system. 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. All in all shining a new light on their business from a different perspective.
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. All through a highly customized approach, working one-to-one and co-creating the end result together with the client and the project team.
FACILITATING A 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.
STRATEGY CO-CREATION WORKSHOPS WITH LEADERSHIP TEAM AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We helped this company's CEO and Chairman of the Board in the Transportation sector to design a tailor made strategy process, explore their business environment, and co-create their vision and strategy together with key stakeholders across the organization. We also facilitated important co-creation workshops involving the leadership team and the Board of Directors. A crucial step in the process of this company's transformational journey.
STRATEGY CO-CREATION WITH 75 LEADERS
We helped this Division Head co-create the division strategy together with his leadership team, and ultimately involving all 75 managers of the division in the process. This project started with trend scanning and an in depth situational analysis followed by a future scenario workshop. Then followed a deeper exploration of growth opportunities through customer safaris, and related internal barriers; envisioning the future of the division and the development of a strategic plan to reach their goals, as well as a preparation for the best possible roll-out. Developing actions involved all managers of the division in a two day "mega"-workshop. We helped plan and facilitate the whole process.
CO-CREATING A WORLD-CLASS 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.
CO-CREATING A WORLD-CLASS INNOVATION STRATEGY
We helped the Executive Vice President Innovation in this exponentially growing company identify and understand the very frontiers and trends of world-class innovation, and how to develop a world-class sustainability innovation agenda. Everything aimed at reaching their very ambitious growth targets while staying aligned to the company's purpose, strategy, sustainability agenda, and desired culture. We conducted primary and secondary research; and then facilitated the actual strategy co-creation with the client team.
AGILE TRANSFORMATION FOR HUMAN GROWTH
We helped the Chief Transformation & People Officer in an exponentially growing organization to 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. We are currently supporting the client with a virtual Co:Lab pilot in the US as part of the roll out.
CO-CREATING SUSTAINABLE SERVICES AND BUSINESS MODELS
We helped this Marketing Director and her team explore and co-create new services and business models as a complement to their already very successful and sustainable product portfolio. We used customer and market research as input to a series of customized and co-creative innovation sprints and helped the client identify approximately 300 ideas. Through a series of iterations, we ultimately helped the innovation team co-develop a handful of highly relevant and attractive solutions and concepts, through rapid prototyping, customer testing as well as early business model and business case development and experimentation.
