Business Strategy

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.
Gantt business strategy services include:

  • Strategic Plan Architecture – identify the appropriate components of a sound Strategic Plan for your particular business and circumstances. No “one-size-fits-all.”
  • Strategic Snapshot – with research and interviews, we distill the unique, essential strategic issues facing your company, creating a foundational profile for management team deliberations and decision-making.
  • Focus Questions – customized to provide structure and direction to planning and creating a compelling and persuasive vision.
  • Research – as needed, we will conduct industry, market, or competitor research that challenges pre-conceived assumptions about your strategic positioning.
  • Results – that resonate with employees, investors, and customers. Our strategic planning solutions are custom-built for each client.

Gantt help you decide where you want to go and how you want to get there.

For mid-sized companies, we can help you forge a link between business strategy, project management execution, and behavioral science that enables your strategy to be implemented successfully and drives it to success. This means we begin with your Vision and work with you through Execution of the projects that achieve that vision.
