Strategy

Focused, inspired, insightful and attainable… It’s what every great strategy should be.

At SRA, we focus on encouraging organisations to think differently and innovatively in developing intelligent strategy. Strategy that not only provides a clear roadmap for success, but one that engages, defines action and creates results.

We work to help you uncover insights, shed light on challenges, and create growth and enhanced performance through real strategic change.

Does your organisation have a clear vision for where you want to be in 2 years? 5 years? 10 years?

Do you have a clear strategic intent and course of action?

Is your strategy focused, engaging and supported by your people?

Here’s how we can assist…

Successful strategic planning is clear and meaningful. It engages and communicates with the right people at the right times.

For real strategic change to occur, it involves reinvention – not rearranging.  Shuffling around resources and creating a priority list that will sit on a shelf for the next 3-5, or even 10 years is not effective strategic planning.

Real strategic change is about getting the right things done well in order to move forward with clear understanding and intent.

Our team can help you achieve just that.

We do this by leveraging our decades of experience in working with a variety of industries and businesses. Combined with our unique approachdesigned to optimise outcomes, SRA can assist you to develop an intelligent strategy that:

  • clearly defines strategic focus areas
  • identifies the activities required to realise strategic focus areas
  • creates focus and alignment
  • enables greater efficiency and effectiveness.

If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll never get there. No matter how hard you work, if you don’t know what you’re working towards, you will never make it. In order to succeed, you must first decide what success looks like to you, then you must develop a strategy that will let you realise it.

Talk to us now to start the ball rolling on your roadmap to success.

As a top leader, your people should be your top priority.

Attracting, retaining, and developing great people might be the single most important factor in achieving your business goals. Great people are those who are engaged, inspired, motivated, and committed.

You need great people to achieve success.

This is particularly relevant in light of emerging trends, such as:

  • a shortage of skilled workers
  • increased workforce diversity
  • a ‘new age’ of HR
  • new forms of work.

As a top leader, you need to be asking where your future workforce will come from.

Do you already have high potential people working for you? If so, how will you develop and retain them? If not, how will you attract the great people you need?

At SRA, we can help you develop a People Strategy to ensure you respond to trends nimbly; and attract, retain, and develop the great people your organisation needs to thrive.

Did you know that according to strategy literature, between 50% and 80% of strategy implementation efforts fail?[i]

Even organisations with the right strategies don’t always manage to implement them well!

Our Strategy Implementation Workshops are designed to help to guide and support the leadership team through the challenges to implementation, with topics covering:

  • Barriers – What are the blocks (resources, culture, structure) and how do we overcome these?
  • Leadership – Is everyone clear on responsibilities and accountabilities? Is information accurate and reliable?
  • Communication – Are your messages articulate?  Do your managers and their teams understand the strategy and the role they play in helping to achieve it?

Successful implementation requires inspiring leadership to drive the strategy, maintain focus, reduce uncertainty and build engagement. Messages need to be clear, and strategy communicated internally and externally.

Ask us about our executive coaching as an optional extra – typically useful for executives who hold ultimate responsibility for strategy implementation.
