Introduction

Our mission is to provide the leading methodology for collaborative strategy development, the ThinkPoints web tool to track progress, and enable our clients so they can focus their efforts, align their organizations, and accomplish good things. The methodology is intuitive and adaptable to a wide array of strategy needs. It is also easily deployable so your organization is engaged in delivering the results you're looking for.


Here's how it works, starting with Strategic Intent...

Intent

The first step in developing any new strategy is to define your intent. This is a general statement of your objective and where you want to go: the problem to solve, challenge to be met, or opportunity to be captured. The strategic intent sets the scope and tone for the strategy.

For Example:

  • Provide leaders in any industry or non-profit organization of any size with a methodology to focus, align and engage their organizations to accomplish good things.

Situation

The current situation provides relevant facts about where you are today with respect to your strategic intent. Results of situation analyses are posted in headline form and supported by facts and data.

Example:

  • Leaders face challenges today that require new levels of strategic thinking.


Strategic Issues

These are relevant key issues that surfaced during development of the situation analysis and need to be addressed otherwise they will lower the probability of success.

Example:

  • There are chronic issues surrounding the strategy process.


Insights

These are the one or two relevant insights that surface during the situation analysis that can be leveraged in the strategy because they will increase the probability of success.

Example:

  • If you overcome the process issues, most leaders are excited about strategy.


Objective

These are the specific measures that tell you if you are being successful in achieving your intent. The are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timed.

Example:

  • Enable 10,000 new strategies in businesses and non-profits so they accomplish good things.

 

  • For all types of strategy needs...
