What does it involve?

A Making Strategy programme involves between 1 and 4 days of contact time with the strategy making team and a corresponding amount of support time for analysis, reporting and feedback.

The key stages include:

o Introduction and Orientation 
This entails meeting the strategy making team, providing orientation to the programme and agreeing key parameters and target outcomes.

o The Making Strategy Intervention 
o Devising the strategic issues 'Radar' 
o Developing a comprehensive system of goals 
o Exploring organisational competencies, assets and resources 
o Developing the business model and supporting strategies

o Analysis and Report Generation 
The major outputs from the Intervention are analysed using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques and a report of 8-12 pages is generated.

o Feedback, Revision and Implementation 
After a period of reflection, the strategy making team reviews the report and discusses the content and implications. This leads to a programme of implementation which can include a simple action plan or a more detailed balanced scorecard.


What are the outcomes?

o A robust visual business model 
o An implementation plan with key actions, time frames and owners 
o Supporting documentation and reports 
o Renewed focus to the core aims of the business 
o Enhanced performance across all key areas of the business 
o A format and simple 'language' for future strategic development
