At Step Advisory we work closely with CEOs and their executive teams to craft optimal strategies which enable them to compete in their chosen market, positively impact bottom-line performance and grow stakeholder value. Our strategy formulation process is a highly effective process which ensures alignment across executive teams and which fosters commitment to a co-ordinated blueprint designed to support future growth.
Unlock your team’s collective intelligence
Every effective CEO and executive team needs a clear and robust strategy which guides the optimal allocation of scarce and valuable resources. Leaders often find it challenging to be both a participant and a facilitator of this key process, particularly when it comes to challenging an executive team’s thinking in a nonthreatening way. Strategy formulation helps leaders to infuse this process with the inspiration required to ensure the best outcome.
An independent and objective facilitator is able to ask tough, uncomfortable questions and, in the process, to stretch the thinking of the team beyond the normal boundaries. This approach enables the leader to participate in the process while having the benefit of an objective sounding board, rather than an echo chamber. An external strategy facilitator is also able to elicit open and honest feedback from all the participants, insights that might not be readily shared in an internal setting.
