Strategy Assessment

Strategy Assessments are an excellent tool that allows executive management to view clearly the status of their organization.  While many consultants offer high-level assessments across your organization, our in-depth focused approach ensure you get the information you need to adjust your strategy.  We assess key factors in the development and implementation of an organizational strategy.  We offer two types of assessment, each with a unique focus:

  • Strategy Review: Offers a comprehensive look into all existing strategy documents, both formal and informal.  This can include strategy documents created in-house and by external parties.  This review is aimed at ensuring that the strategy provides an effective and executable picture of the organization’s desired future state.
  • Strategic Status Review: Documents the existence of an organizational strategy, the effectiveness and coherence of the strategy, and where the company is in the implementation process.

 

Organizational Alignment Assessment
