The Strategy Your Business Needs To Be Successful
Simple, Affordable, and Highly Effective Strategy Formulation That Gets Implemented and Drives Results
Every business needs a sound strategy to guide decisions and growth, but there’s a problem…
- It’s expensive
- It often results in little or no change
- It takes a long time and is often obsolete as soon as consensus is reached
- Without one, you’re leaving your growth to chance
- It’s rigid and hard to pivot in the face of disruption, volatility, and abrupt change (look at our current world!)
Thankfully there’s a solution.
Sentient Strategy® is a revolutionary approach to building strategy consensus that is easily implemented, readily embraced by all, and costs a fraction of the cost of traditional strategic formulation.
The reality is that setting strategy is not rocket science. On top of that, nobody has time for complicated, arcane methodologies, or worse – outdated approaches like SWOT analysis and more.
It’s time to change your past strategy development approach to one that is straightforward, flexible, fast, and organic.
An approach that will help you:
Successfully evolve your strategy continually in the face of inevitable change
Hold people strictly accountable for implementing the required change
Achieve your objectives faster and more cost-effectively than you thought possible
Have the ability to separate and understand the difference between strategy and tactics
- Assign key implementation steps, since most strategy fails in the implementation, not the formulation.
That approach is Sentient Strategy®.
What is Sentient Strategy®?
Developed by Alan Weiss – consultant, speaker, and bestselling author. Described by the New York Post as “one of the most highly regarded independent consultants in America,” his consulting firm, Summit Consulting Group, Inc., has attracted clients such as Merck, Hewlett-Packard, GE, Mercedes-Benz, and more than 500 leading organizations. Alan Weiss is the author of 64 books, many of which have been included in university curricula and translated into 15 languages.
Sentient Strategy is a flexible discipline, rather than a rigid methodology. This makes it easily adaptable to the unique situation of any enterprise.
Noah is one of less than two-dozen certified to help organizations develop a Sentient Strategy approach.
Who is it for?
Sentient Strategy is best suited to organizations with revenues of between $20 million and $500 million. But a “lite” version can be applied within smaller organizations. It works equally well for specific divisions in profit-driven businesses (sales, for example) of all kinds, as well as non-profits, charities and government agencies that are willing and able to drive rapid strategic change.
How does it work?
In a one-day Sentient Strategy workshop, we will:
Assess the strategic success factors that could help or hinder your business in reaching its desired future state.
Select the two or three pivotal factors that should be the focus of your actions to drive massive change over the next 12 months.
Create a roadmap of the actions that need to be taken to maximize the impact of those critical factors.
Assign accountabilities to ensure progress is made within an agreed timeframe.
Noah will then be available to offer advice and guidance for a period of 30, 60 or 90 days, depending on your needs.
How is this approach different?
Unlike traditional approaches, Sentient Strategy doesn’t require a small army of consultants, sophisticated quasi-scientific methods, or a high six-figure budget. And it won’t result in a set of plans in binders that end up on a dusty shelf.
Instead, it focuses on two contextual axes that are little discussed but critical when it comes to the agile, real-world implementation of strategy:
Awareness of your business environment (your competition, industry, overall market conditions)
Consciousness of your actions (sensitivity to the impact of your decisions and behaviors on customers, employees, investors, etc.)
In other words, Sentient Strategy.
What that means for you is faster results and a flexible template for adjusting course regularly.
