Corporate Grand Strategy is all about creating the future that you want as a company, and there are 3 key steps to that - it is crucial that they are done in the right order:
Our Corporate Grand Strategy session is a facilitated and highly interactive session for your whole management team that focuses mostly on Step 1. It takes a full day and there will be some pre-workshop activity, and afterwards, usually a couple of shorter follow-up discussions.
Our free tool (we just need your e-mail and an agreement that we can communicate with you) will ask you a series of questions. It will help you, and us, gain an initial insight into where you are going, why and what you will do to get there.

It needs to answer the questions: “where are we going and why, who are we, what do we believe in, and what are we prepared to do to achieve our goals?”
The problem we see is that many people (initially) see strategy as a mechanical process that magically gives them a prioritised list of objectives and activities to achieve some goal – a goal that the organisation isn’t too clear on in the first place.
Most strategic discussions we hear are actually operational and tactical in nature; that crucial first step of bringing one clear vision of the future to the whole management team is often missing.
And we know that because when we ask some simple questions about it, we get many different answers. If your execs are all working towards different things, what is that doing to your effectiveness and efficiency?
So, we need to do something about that.
Coaches your executive team to ‘think’ strategically and ‘see’ the world that you want to create.
Which will enable you to confidently tackle the right markets with the right products and services.
And so simplify the process of setting objectives, generating operational plans and developing your tactics, so that you can build the right operations to produce your products and services.
Our Corporate Grand Strategy workshop:
Strategy is the achievement of goals through the wise use of resources and recognition of challenges.
While that definition can be applied to all aspects and levels of the business, there needs to be an overarching corporate grand strategy.
Planning and Preparation
During the Workshop
Our workshop is an intense full one-day* session for your whole exec or management team, and it is carried out away from all the distractions of the day-to-day
* We can run this as a 2-day event for management retreats - in which case we can build in additional sessions covering a wide range of areas; we can go deeper and / or broader. We can also build in 'team development' activities. Ask us.

This is the book of the workshop. This free e-book will provide you with the framework to build your own corporate grand strategy. It's for those that want some background to the workshop, or for those that want to try it DIY.
Creation of strategy is a function of the human mind. We think strategically as a matter of course. A good strategic plan can only come about as a result of some good underlying strategic thinking. This book builds on the content of the Grand Strategy Workbook (it does include everything that is in that book) by exploring the strategic thinking processes that are essential to help us create corporate (or any type of) strategy. This is a book for everyone.
