Strategy & Corporate Planning
Your company is unique.
Our approach to strategy design is to help you refine your uniqueness, your “raison d’être,” and with our tested and true “workbook,” we facilitate the development of business and action plans.
Our entire focus is to identify and execute specific actions that are sustainable in an increasingly competitive market place.
Our strategic management approach is not only aimed at the executive level during formulation of the company’s competitive strategy, but also focuses on how to successfully implement the strategy through the participation of the workforce. This is done through workshops at executive and middle management levels. It also includes personal interaction and training with managers and employees at all levels.
You will be guided through three different stages, covering the current situation, the future and the how.
During the initial stage, an analysis of the company’s leadership is followed by a strategic analysis of the external and internal business environment.
During this phase, results of customer, employee, competitive and environmental surveys are used as input.
It is important for a company to know where it wants to go and what it wants to achieve. Crafting a vision, mission and establishing a value system gives your company that ability. Although this process starts with the Executive team, the CRGroup approach ensures that a shared vision is created as the process is facilitated through all levels of the organization. This will ensure buy-in and the focus needed for the implementation of the strategy.
Realizing what the current situation is like and knowing where the leadership wants to take the company in the future, a gap analysis is conducted to determine what has to be done to realize the future. Based on the result of the gap analysis, a core strategy and well-defined goals are formulized. These are company specific and indicate how the future is going to be realized, preparing the company to successfully execute their strategy. This phase is essential for the successful implementation of the company’s performance management system.
The executive management team is responsible for creating the context within which transformation can successfully take place. It is however the responsibility of middle managers, supervisors and employees to implement the strategy. The important question that the executive team must answer is "How do we take the rest along with us?” CRGroup’s participative approach to strategic management ensures that the results of the executive session are transferred to the next level of the organization and shown that it is their responsibility, with the guidance and support of top management, to transfer the strategic objectives into practical managerial and operational objectives.
Implementation can now start based on firm support of all stakeholders.
