How AGH's strategic plan facilitation service can help your organization
AGH's strategic planning consultants utilize multiple approaches that can be customized based on your unique situation. Below are examples of four approaches available.
Traditional strategic planning
In a three-phase process, AGH consultants first gather information about the organization and its situation from a variety of sources, including employee surveys and one-on-one interviews to share with the organization's leadership. Next, a facilitated planning retreat compares current reality to desired outcome, analyzes the gap and environment, and develops strategic plans and action steps to close the gap. In phase three, follow-up meetings tracking the action steps help ensure organizational accountability and follow-through.
Entrepreneurial Transformation System (ETS)
Healthy organizations need to be strong in three areas: strategy, execution, and people/culture. AGH’s ETS is a simple process that creates the framework and cadence for your organization to address all three areas in the right sequence, pulling together proven tools and processes from a variety of the world’s leading minds. Participants leave with a clear, shared vision amongst all employees, getting things dones with a regular rhythm, and having the right people in the right seats with accountability to drive performance.

Does your strategy seem stale or is no longer working? While some may be tempted to throw out their old (current or existing?) strategic plan, we believe that renewing your strategic plan — rather than restarting — can be a better option. Our experienced strategic planning professionals will work with you to analyze your strategic plan and its implementation in order to suggest steps for getting it back on track. Through reviewing your existing plan and interviewing key stakeholders, we can help identify the gaps and opportunities to make recommendations, create an action plan for “strategic doing,” and facilitate follow-up and accountability.
The world is changing at a faster pace every day. In order to survive, businesses need to be able to do two things at once: 1) execute on their core business and 2) innovate to improve and develop new product and service offerings. This requires businesses to be both an experienced business and a startup at once.
AGH’s strategy consultants help organizations plan for the future (see above) and innovate to develop new business models, products and services. Through our strategic process, we will help you define the needs and wants of your customers, create compelling value propositions, test your assumptions, monitor progress and accelerate growth.
Let us help you think innovatively about your business model and new product development.
