Strategic Alignment

Using data to help executives develop and align their company-wide strategic imperatives

Strategic Formulation and Alignment

  • Do you know whether your team has strong strategic capability and which individuals contribute the strongest?
  • Is your team equally strong in contingent strategy and configurative strategy?
  • Is your team excellent at anticipating the unexpected?
  • Is your team outstanding at identifying less obvious growth opportunities?
  • Do you have a strong track record of near perfect implementation?

If you struggle to provide good answers to any of these questions you will likely have a “strategy” problem. Don’t worry, it is extremely common. When formulating strategic direction many leadership teams focus on defining what they need to do rather than think through the value they need to create. Strategy quickly becomes a description of activity, focused on the short-term and driven by the problems that need to be solved. Add to this the fact that strategy tends to change as tactics change then it is little surprise that individual leaders send confusing messages and lack consistency when talking about future strategic direction.

CONCHIE ASSOCIATES specialize in helping executives develop strategy over the long-term in a way that identifies opportunity, focuses on growth and clearly defines value-creation. By following a structured strategic development process leadership teams are able to debate, argue and decide in a way that drives complete alignment and enables effective and consistent strategic communication across the enterprise.

The Strategic Formulation and Alignment process is a 2-year minimum engagement. It involves interview and survey methodology and can be integrated with team optimization efforts to achieve multiple objectives.
