At its core, strategy is about making courageous choices — choices that rigorously focus on how your organization will create unique and sustainable value for the constituents you serve, including your customers, shareholders and staff. And you must make these choices in a dynamic environment that incorporates fluid market, competitive, technological, economic and regulatory realities.
The scope of strategic thinking initiatives vary with the specific needs of the organization over time. Sometimes it’s the need to develop a new long-term plan; in other cases the objective is to address a specific strategic issue like an emerging technological trend, a possible M&A transaction, or an unexpected competitive initiative. Triaxia Partners works with clients to address the full spectrum of their strategic planning needs.
What a planning initiative seeks to accomplish
Strategic planning initiatives are not boiler plate exercises and must be customized to the specific conditions and challenges that your organization is facing.
An approach to pursuing the effort
We’ve observed that every client planning initiative is unique in its objectives, process, and outputs. Triaxia Partners Strategic Thinking Cycle provides a model or template that allows the planning team to identify the specific questions they want to address and effectively navigate through a wide array of planning endeavors.
Guideline to keep in mind
Planning is an inherently internal, institutionally customized activity. In assisting our clients in developing such strategic plans, Triaxia Partners works diligently to apply proven planning principles.
What the planning process is to deliver
Every planning initiative must ultimately boil down to an agreed set of planning outputs (Documents) that describe what the organizational intends to do and how it will do it. Successful planning exercises define those outputs up front to ensure that the planning process supports achieving those deliverables.
Establishing and executing plans to accomplish a shared, worthwhile vision is the primary responsibility of any organization’s leadership team. Planning is an inherently internal, institutionally customized activity. In assisting our clients in developing such strategic plans, at Triaxia Partners we work diligently to apply the proven planning principles as we facilitate the planning efforts of our clients.
