You need to align the team. You need to foster a culture of innovation. You need to fully understand the realities of your current state business model. You need a strong and sharable vision that has been co-created by the team. You need well designed and well thought out strategic options to drive your next bold steps. You don’t want internal thinking to slow this down or to railroad it.
There is an absolute art to designing strategic conversations like this. It goes well beyond expert facilitation. It requires design and, it requires us to start with the outcomes we need to achieve.
Our rapid Strategic Thinking approach employs the rigor of business modeling, the essence of design thinking and the super power of visual thinking. What mindset do you need in order to dive in? What are the design parameters for impactful strategic thinking?
We need to be prepared to really understanding your current state business model (good, bad and ugly). We have to consider our market context. What’s happening in the world that is influencing our future? Where are the opportunities? What threats do we need to design around?
What is our collective ambition? What is our vision? What does success look like for us? What excites us? What cultural dynamics are at work that can either enable or block our success?
