Strategic Business Plan
We will facilitate a team based thinking process which can cover a period of time based on your desired pace.
Then we'll take the leadership team through a structured process which will enable them to debate preconceived and perhaps even conflicting ideas of how to move the business forward.
The outcome is team agreement and alignment.
The output is a series of written documents which capture the thinking.
But it's not the document that's important.
It's the debate and creation of agreement which is important.
It's a plan to help you see where you are now, and to help you decide where you want to go next and capture the thoughts for how to do it.
Our strategic thinking process will help you:
- Get the organisation aligned
- Gain agreement
- Secure buy in

- The economics of manufacturing in Australia.
- Demise of auto industry in Australia
- The impact of China
- Impacts from mining boom
- Skills shortages
- The impact of emerging technology
Your choice of leadership and the strategic decisions that you make, can have a massive impact on the direction and future state of the business.

Strategic thinking is required
But, thinking is hard, difficult and challenging.
Often there is no “one silver bullet” type of answer. It requires the leadership team to think through options for what could be done, and build their plans around the preferred option(s).
Perhaps your leadership team might want to focus on:
- Finding and researching your best customers, then using that insight to uncover new business opportunities.
- Creating offerings that customers find of interest and of huge value.
- Developing and refining the business model to be able to deliver what the customer wants, profitably.
- Building and developing the team to evolve the business.
- Setting business processes up so that performance is repeatable.
- Building control and feedback processes, to manage performance.
