Strategy on a Page!
Defining, living and actioning great strategy is arguably one of the most important and critical skills for business leaders and SMEs and yet globally it is one of the weakest skills of leaders. It doesn’t need to be that way for you!
Strategy needs to be kept simple, powerful and actionable. Then it needs to be brought alive each and every day in an engaging and exciting way. Every business leader is already ‘doing’ strategy – the question is – is it good or bad strategy – and do you know the difference?
Strategy on a Page was created when Deri had been asked on numerous occasions during investment proposals and raising capital, what the essence of the company’s business was? Most companies illustrated this with an Executive Plan, but often their templates didn’t work, as every business is unique. Additionally, by the time they were written, they were out of date because strategy and the world moves so fast.
Therefore, Strategy on a Page combats that speed and acceleration in the business world, by enabling individuals to strategically adapt to the changes in external and internal markets. The concept also provides monthly accountability, being able to flex strategy in the now, medium term and long term.
The aim of the workshop is to distil business strategy on to a single A4 page and to connect individuals to every aspect of their company’s ‘page’, from Purpose to Business Growth Indicators. You will learn a powerful process of strategic planning and execution used by some of the best and fastest growing companies in the world. This is leading edge thought is designed specifically to have massive impact, driving bottom line results.
Deri brings strategy alive by making it simple, engaging and memorable and creating legends every day. Your rhythm, theme and legend will be aligned and sown weekly in your personal actions.
