What is “Business Strategy?” Strategy is the creation of a unique and valuable position that requires you to perform a different set of activities from your competitors. An organization can only outperform its rivals if it can establish a difference that it can maintain. Real strategy requires trade-offs – deciding what to focus on and what to NOT do.
Organizational effectiveness is not strategy. “Best practices” are following the herd – and that does not differentiate you. Strategic positions can be based on customer needs (even if they don’t realize them yet, like Apple has done), or a balance of established and new products and services. Gantt works with your leaders to develop intended strategies AND recognize emergent (hidden) strategies to fully achieve your business goals.
