A Making Strategy programme involves between 1 and 4 days of contact time with the strategy making team and a corresponding amount of support time for analysis, reporting and feedback.
The key stages include:
o Introduction and Orientation
This entails meeting the strategy making team, providing orientation to the programme and agreeing key parameters and target outcomes.
o The Making Strategy Intervention
o Devising the strategic issues 'Radar'
o Developing a comprehensive system of goals
o Exploring organisational competencies, assets and resources
o Developing the business model and supporting strategies
o Analysis and Report Generation
The major outputs from the Intervention are analysed using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques and a report of 8-12 pages is generated.
o Feedback, Revision and Implementation
After a period of reflection, the strategy making team reviews the report and discusses the content and implications. This leads to a programme of implementation which can include a simple action plan or a more detailed balanced scorecard.
o A robust visual business model
o An implementation plan with key actions, time frames and owners
o Supporting documentation and reports
o Renewed focus to the core aims of the business
o Enhanced performance across all key areas of the business
o A format and simple 'language' for future strategic development
