Strategy is Expensive.

It is a myth that strategy requires long planning days, extensive leadership retreats, and hours upon hours measuring results.

Strategy is the allocation of resources towards the precious few activities that advance your vision.

Get the most out of your team members’ 2,000 hours per year.

Try a simple approach to strategy: Pick 2 – 3 strategic initiatives. Then allocate time during weekly team meetings to discuss progress towards them.

Dedicating just 1 hour per week to those 2 – 3 initiatives can pivot your team from “doing a job” to “marching towards your vision!”

Aha! Moments

Customer Profile: Operations & Management Consultant Company

Customer Location: Ontario, Canada

Aha Moment: A senior consultant helps businesses plan their immediate goals, budgets, and priority hires. He realized that he could send an example org chart using Strategypoint’s Teams functionality. During a meeting, he was able to discuss the roles that were filled & unfilled with a simple visual.

Result: The consultant was able to effectively communicate how the organization should be structured, and how to later fill the open positions. This common deliverable, once a static slide image, is now a dynamic tool that everyone can access!
