Strategy-Focused Organization Evaluation
Consists in evaluating how much an organization is focused on strategy, considering the perception and understanding of its collaborators. An initial evaluation is performed to delineate the main conditions required for an effective strategy implementation.
Constructing a Future Shared Vision
Through the use of methodologies such as Future Search, a shared future vision is constructed, considering the best knowledge of all the stakeholders in the organization. By an intense effort to align all these stakeholders, a future significant shared vision is constructed from a common basis.
Formulating innovative strategies: Experience Co-Creation
A new strategy paradigm is emerging: Experience Co-Creation. According to this new paradigm, the major competencies are no longer present in the organization's value chain, but rather in the interactions with its clients, and stakeholders.
Utilizing leading edge techniques that require the active participation of all the players in an industry's value chain and based on the interactions among these players, innovative strategies are defined for the organization.
Translating the strategy
The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) is a tool that enables an organization to translate its future vision into correlated strategic objectives, distributed through business perspectives. By linking these strategic objectives to measures and targets, the alignment between the action plan and the strategy's organization is guaranteed through a continuous monitoring and review process.
More than translating the strategy, the challenge facing the organizations constitutes transforming the strategic planning activities into a continual process, utilizing the Balanced Scorecard as a central ingredient to compose a unique and harmonious management model that aligns all management tools.
