Value to ECIA Members
In an operating environment of frenetic speed and increasing market disruption we often feel lucky just to get through the day. How then can we effectively carve out time to think let alone corral our limited resources for strategic or innovative positioning efforts? If this is your reality, third party support could be of value to you for the following reasons:
Perspective – Help facilitate fresh thinking
It is easy to get “stuck” in our current approach and our individual silos. Over time, our vision can become unnecessarily narrow. Sometimes all it takes is a bit of distance or fresh perspective to remove those blinders and open up new thinking around what is possible and doable. This is particularly true if the reality of your planning process is that it takes place while your team is also responsible for their “day jobs”.
Perhaps you need to better understand the voice of your customers or suppliers through a council-type interaction, perhaps you need a fresh set of eyes, perhaps you just need more bandwidth to work on certain pieces of the input.
Clarity – Translate vision and ideas into actionable execution
The strategic process can be a bit like looking into a thousand piece jigsaw puzzle box. Putting the puzzle together so that it provides a clear picture for the organization is sometimes best supported by a third party who isn’t married to elements of the image.
The same holds true for execution. A third party can often help identify the disconnects that so often occur at the handoff points within an organization and that so often derail even the most brilliant strategies.
Speed – Proven, as-needed resources to contribute needed information and insight
In our current “right sized” organizations where we are all doing more with less, there often isn’t the resource pool available for the added burden of the strategic planning process. Elements of the process lend themselves to different skill sets that we may no longer keep on staff.
The ability for your organization to periodically step back to reassess and reimagine is vital to your continued competitive advantage. If you find your efforts can’t gain traction or maintain momentum through to completion, Optimum Results, Inc. is your resource partner to help you achieve results.
