Strategic Clarity – 4 Key Questions

What systems do you use to formulate corporate and divisional strategies and then develop them further?

How do you strengthen the strategic competence of your managers?

How do you set up the supporting functional strategies and dovetail them in a consistent way with each other and with the corporate and divisional strategy?

How do you enable the organisation to translate strategic requirements appropriate to level into target hierarchies and bundles of measures?

Benefits of Strategy Development

  • Scalable Cascading of Strategy with Company-Specific Levels

    You have a systematic, transparent and robust process for strategy development at every strategy level in the company.
  • Divide et Impera (divide and rule) – Agility through Dispersed Responsibility for Strategy

    Your managers realise their role in the strategic process and in cascading strategy in accordance with their level and apply the strategy instruments defined with consistency and uniformity.
  • Coherent Functional Strategies

    The functional areas in the company recognise their contribution to the success of the strategy and can translate the strategic requirements into effective functional strategies.
