Strategic planning in volatile times

"It is becoming clear that many of the issues faced by the family business sector derive from a lack of strategic planning" - PwC Family Business Survey.

Most businesses today are operating in highly competitive, volatile and "cut-throat" markets. Our Strategy Planning Programme focuses on tools and thinking to help you develop the culture, strategies and actions to ensure your business remains strategically in the game.

Without a strong culture in place, which is supported by great strategies, your business could be more vulnerable to business change, competitive threats and shifts in customer behaviours.

A great culture and strategy, expertly delivered, will generate significant transformational shifts in the way you, your organisation and your team does business, setting yourself apart from your competitors.


To ensure that you combine culture, strategy and tactics, as well as implementing your plans, we have developed our world famous NOW-WHERE-HOW model, which is specially designed to identify and prioritise your key business issues, plan your destination and develop the strategies to get you there.

We can also assist you to set meaningful operational KPIs that will deliver the behaviours, strategic goals and results you want to drive your business forward.

An 'off the shelf' Strategy Workshop, may be the perfect option to kickstart your team and business, alternatively, we have designed a tiered 'off the shelf' offer that has been designed to offer you flexibility and meet your budget requirements, these include:

Strategy Connect - a short term Strategy Planning programme designed to strengthen your business foundations and take you on to the next level
