Strategy and Planning
70-90% of strategic planning efforts fail to achieve optimum results. The term strategic planning itself is an oxymoron. At SPGroup we help you develop a clear and realistic strategy and a plan to go with it.
How are you positioned differently than your competitors?
Face it, we all have competitors whether you are in business, government or the non-profit sector. Growth, success and ultimately organizational sustainability depends upon differentiating yourself from the crowd. Many organizations confuse strategy with objectives or worse, tasks. The essence of strategy is differentiation; are you positioned differently than others in your sector? Or are you lost in the noise like these 20 different organizations that consider themselves strategic?
Being strategic means making choices, deciding what to do and equally important what not to do. It means peering into the future and taking calculated risks, trying something different. Strategy can be scary for organizations steeped in tradition at the same time it is also invigorating and can breathe new life into a stagnant organization.
Strategy by itself is not enough; you need a plan, because if you don’t know where you are going how will you know when you get there? A real plan plots the course, measures progress and allows for corrections as the outside world changes.
Done correctly, strategy should inform every decision you make going forward and drive real results.
At SPGroup we create value by working with you to see the opportunities, create real and compelling strategy, rise above the noise and prepare to deliver.
